How to Get Rid of Google Ads

by Thomas King ; Updated September 28, 2017

Google Adsense is a free program that allows anyone with a website to display advertisements on their site. Google helps advertisers by directing them to the right audience and Google helps web publishers by paying them a small amount each time an advertisement on their web page is clicked. As Google Adsense becomes more popular, more and more advertisements are popping up around the Internet. This can be frustrating for Internet browsers. Fortunately, there is a simple way to get rid of Google ads.

Go to and download Mozilla Firefox. Mozilla Firefox is a free Internet web browser, similar to Internet Explorer.

Go to to download Adblock Plus, and click "Add to Firefox." For simplicity, you should use your newly installed Firefox to navigate to the aforementioned link.

Click "Install Now" in the box that opens up. If the box does not automatically open up, you may need to click "Allow" in the banner that appears on the top of the web browser.

Select the country nearest you and click "OK."

Restart Firefox once the download is complete.

Select "Tools" from the menu on the top of the Firefox Browser. Then click on "Adblock Plus Preferences" from the drop-down menu.

Click on "Filters" and then select "Add Filters."

Type into the box that appears. Then click "OK." You have now successfully gotten rid of all Google Adsense ads.
