Are you tired of seeing Pinterest results cluttering up your Google search? If you’ve ever found yourself frustrated with the dominance of Pinterest pins in your search results, you’re not alone.
Whether you’re looking for specific information or images, the abundance of Pinterest results can sometimes hinder your search experience. In this blog, we’ll guide you through the steps to effectively remove Pinterest from your Google Search results.
It’s actually pretty easy. Here is how to do it.

You don’t need a plugin and don’t need to edit browser settings.

Searching Google for the keywords:
wedding dress ideas
You will probably get Pinterest in Google results.
Pinterest will most likely also be in Google Images like:
However, if you don’t want those results showing when you search in Google, you simply add -pinterest.com to the end of your search.
So your new modified search using the example above would be:
wedding dress ideas -pinterest.com
So it’s the minus (-) character sign and domain pinterest.com together with no spaces at the end of your keywords.
That also works to exclude Pinterest from Google image searches.
Image example with the domain exclusion modifier:
Other Countries and TLDs
And remember, Pinterest is in other countries, too. So with that example above, that would exclude only the .com version of the website.
That means you could still see results from pinterest.dk, pinterest.de, etc.
Remember to add the minus sign before the domain with no spaces.
wedding dress ideas -pinterest.com -pinterest.dk -pinterest.de
