Trolling google ads

anemoanemo Member Posts: 1,006 Uncommon

anyone else just search on google to change which ads you get, especially on youtube.

The best that I've found is searching for servers.   Ads are normally quite cheap meaning they're just a small "blip pop up", and you'll get shorter commercials like captains morgan.

Worst is media, video games or movies.   Ads that are full 30 seconds or more and unskippable, normally just go and use yahoo/ask if I need to search video game news.

__________

so anyone else have other recommendations for Ads that are more unobtrusive.

Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent.

    Skip them... I Hate Google. I do recomend disableing it on this sight though, it messes with some parts of it.

    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude; greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

    Yup, just go get adblock.  Browsing is great and it makes me feel good that each time I refresh a page, I stopped someone from earning $0.003.

    +1 with ad-block.

    I don't "hate" google however, but I'd love for them to stop pestering me with all those ads. At least with Ad-Block I don't see anything showing up. Hell, I only learned that Youtube had ads until I saw someone without ad-block complaining about ads.
