This has been a problem for some time and even blocking them from your search results is not easy.

Unfortunately it is not high in the search rankings however thus non informed / beginners are not seeing the gold mine of information.
This is something I thought I don't have much control over and just needed to do my best to tell people not to use w3schools.
Last night I attended and spoke at the first BrisJS Meetup for 2012
This is great! I get a simple, easy way to promote a far superior reference site and also assist in the SEO for MDN to hopefully one day knock w3schools off the top.
It might not be time to spam F5 at arewefirstyet.com yet but the day will come!
So I implore you. Every chance you get. Add a promotejs.com link on your site, page, blog or anywhere you can get away with it…
