Cannot unblock website Jambonto 5/31/12 5:19 AM
I accidently blocked wikipedia through google, I don't even know how I did it. When I click settings, search settings, block unwanted sites it comes up a page that should allow me to unblock wikipedia. The "unblock" and "unblock all" links are not working. This is very annoying as I can only access wikipedia pages when not signed in to google mail. Im using google chrome, but have tryed with firefox, and it doesnt let me unblock it either

Hi Jambonto,

Could you try to manage it from this page and see it that helps?  Let me know!

Hi,
Thats what I have been trying, but the "unblock" and "unblock all" links are not working. It could just be a fault with the website, but I have been trying for the last week and they dont do anything. But thanks for the reply

Jessica,
I just tested - using FF.,
I don't get the option to block a site in SERP (doing the visit & back to SERP dance).

When I attempt to manually block a site from: http://www.google.com/reviews/t?hl=en
- then the text I write into the URL & reason input fields are light grey, while the "Block site"-button is absolutely normal looking.
Otherwise, everything thing appears to work, when doing a manual block, except the block isn't added to the list (no error message occurs, and any following test searches clearly demonstrates that no block has in fact been added). Hmmm :-|

Note: I haven't tried to remove any of my existing blocks, since guessing that I (if successful) will be unable to add them back.

I have the exact same problem, I accidentally blocked StackOverFlow.com, I'm a programmer, now it won't allow me to unblock it. The links are not working on the "Manage Blocked Sites" web page. This is real stupid.

It is very frustrating when it is a site you use often. I was finally able to unblock it, by typing the address into google, and at the top of the page it says show blocked sites. It then came up a link saying something along the lines of unblock wikipedia, and when I clicked that it was sorted. Hope this helps

What address do I type in to google? thanks
Re: Cannot unblock website kilmenow 6/25/12 2:55 PM
Type in the URL as a search in google, at the top of the search results will be an option to unblock the website the you typed in. Make sure your logged in before attempting this.
