How can I block certain sites from Google search results while preventing Google from tailoring search results just for me?

I've noticed that over time, my Google search results worsen and relevant links start dropping to the bottom while the noise comes to the top. I have to delete my cookies to resolve this, or log out.
This is probably related to the fact that I have "Use Personal Results" enabled, but I also need this in order to block unwanted results, like Yahoo answers.
How can I have both? I don't want Google to tailor my search results just for me, except for removing sites that I have added to the block list.
And I would rather not delete cookies often or log out just to search. I'd rather sift through Yahoo and Wiki Answer results if that is my only option. Plugins are acceptable. (I use Chrome)
