If you are getting your search results cluttered up with links to an unwanted site there is a trick that you can try.

You place -site:example.com after your search words. Obviously replace the example.com with the site you want eliminated from the results. Make sure that there are no spaces in the phrase. An example could be:
Morgan Roadster -site:pinterest.com

Obviously the -site:pinterest.com is designed to eliminate pinterest from the search results.

Thanks for the tip, Peter. Especially your example Pinterest can become a plague when searching for pictures.

I still have a tip or a suggestion because I am a creature of habit and I almost always use the same search engine. But if I use another search engine, sometimes completely different hits or other additional hits of the search results come to the main hit. This already starts with the example "Morgan Roadster" image search.
e.g. if you try www.duckduckgo.com „The search engine that doesn't track you“ as they say and compare the results of whatsever you search for with google.
I do not only mean the search results marked as advertising in google results. Probably it depends beside payments to e.g. google also on which page uses which programming, the frequency how often a site has been used etc. I suspect that e.g. Pinterest uses exactly this to infect the image search on google.

if you click on duckduckgo in the settings on the top right of the page you will be amazed what is preset in other search engines and can only be found in the "small print".
This is only the opinion of a satisfied user who also uses google because the search results seem very comprehensive to me.

That's handy.
Most Google results (for items e.g. photographic, books &c.) seem to favour eBlag or that site named after a S. American river...

If you search for multiple word phrases it always helps to put the whole phrase within inverted commas which forces Google to search for exact phrase rather than anything with each of the words. You can also put a + or minus in front of words (no spaces eg +Morgan -Freeman) to force Google to include or omit words.
