OK I have blocked "Evony Online" and other such annoying stuff using the competitive ad filter. But I am now getting these exasperating flash adverts from Google themselves for "Google Translate".

How do I block adsense ads from Google? I tried putting google.com and google.co.* into the competitive ad filter but it doesn't seem to work.

(Please note: If you don't know what the words competitive ad filter mean, you won't know the answer to this question.)

  • @vmarquez: no it doesn't. This is about "adsense" and is clearly labelled as such. – delete Jul 10 '10 at 2:07
  • @Kinopiko: You are right. My mistake. I may have read the question without too much care :S – vmarquez Jul 10 '10 at 9:28
  • OK sorry I was a bit of a bad mood this morning. – delete Jul 10 '10 at 9:47

The adsense URI is:

googlesyndication.com
  • Thanks, I've already added it. Will be checking back to make sure they've gone. – delete Jul 10 '10 at 2:39

You can download a file at http://pgl.yoyo.org/as/#foursteps which contains hundreds of ad server's url's and get rid of almost all advertisements while browsing. You need to copy paste it in your windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file.

Advantages of pasting all those urls: -

  • Those ads will not be able to distract you
  • Browser will be faster as all that javascript ads load from remote server
  • You save some unnecessary bandwidth

I've had a new discovery. Even after adding all those url Chrome is using some trick to show through doubleclick.net ads! That's bad part of Google which is leveraging Chrome to it's advantage.

  • No, this is about blocking ads on your website. – delete Apr 13 '11 at 17:17
