(Newser) – Over the next few days, Google will be rolling out a feature that will allow you to tell it what sites you like. Just star a result, and in the future, when you’re searching for something relevant to that site, it’ll pop up at the top in a special “starred results” section, the company explains on its blog.

Essentially, you’re telling Google what sources you like. Got a favorite site for reviews, recipes, or super-concise news summaries (hint, hint)? Just star it, and it’ll come up first when you search for something related. The service replaces the less-than-popular Search Wiki product, and will sync with your Google Bookmarks and Google Toolbar, allowing you to manage stars from there.
