What is Google Content Blocker?
Google’s mission is to organize the world’s advertising for maximum exposure to Web users. Unfortunately, annoying Web content often overwhelms the page, causing many users to become distracted and overlook the ads.

That’s where Google Content Blocker comes in. It effectively blocks all Web site content, leaving only the advertisements.

How does Google Content Blocker work?
After you install Google Content Block, just surf the Web as you normally do. When we find a site that has content, we will block that content so you see only the ads. It all happens automatically, with no effort on your part.

What types of ads will I see?
Once the content is removed from a Web site, you will see all of the original ads, unencumbered by annoying content. The ads fall into two categories:.

Google AdSense Ads

 

Other Ads

Google AdSense Ads are the best ads, because we make money every time someone clicks. Learn more about Adsense.

  

Google Content Blocker does not block other ads. This is consistent with the "we are not evil" spirit that our PR department always talks about*.


What can I do once the content is removed?
  • Click on the ads:  Just click ’em (you don’t even have to read ’em). Every time you click an ad, money changes hands. As an option, you can install the free Google Content Blocker "ka-ching!" audio support file.
  • Look at the ads: You probably already know that ads are interesting, entertaining, and informative. So look at them. You may not even realize it, but just looking at an ad will help our advertisers because eventually you’re going to click on that sucker.
  • Click on the ads: Use your mouse. Move the mouse pointer over an ad, then click the mouse button.
  • Tell your friends about the ads:  Tell them how cute and funny the ads are, and tell them how to find them. Also tell them to click on the ads.
  • Click on the ads: If you see an ad, click it. It’s as easy as that.

*Google reserves the right to redirect non-AdSense clicks to Google AdSense advertisers.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. How does Google Content Blocker work?
  2. C’mon man, don’t insult my intelligence. How does it work?
  3. What type of Web content is blocked?
  4. What if I use this along with an ad blocker?
  5. What if I click on a page that has no ads?
  6. Does Google keep track of the content that’s blocked?
  7. I’m an advertiser. How can I get more people to use this valuable tool?
  1. How does Google Content Blocker work?
    You’re probably too dumb to understand the technicalities, but we’ll tell you anyway. We install special top-secret proprietary software on your system. When you browser to a Web site, this software examines the document. Ads are displayed, and everything else is hidden.
     
  2. C’mon man, don’t insult my intelligence. How does it work?
    OK, OK. Here’s a white paper that describes the process in detail:
    Google Content Blocker White Paper
    (PDF)
     
  3. What type of Web content is blocked?
    How many times do we have to tell you? Everything is blocked except the ads. It’s not rocket science. One more time. Repeat after me: If it’s an ad, it’s not blocked. If it’s not an ad, it’s blocked. Got that?
     
  4. What if I use this along with an ad blocker?
    You figure it out, Einstein. You’ll get nothing. Not a goddamned thing. A white page with nothing on it. Zilch. Nada. Nothingness. Only morons use an ad blocker.
     
  5. What if I click on a page that has no ads?
    A Web site with no ads? What do you think this is, 1991? The chances of that happening are very small. In such a case, we will insert some randomly selected Google AdSense ads so you’ll have something to read.
     
  6.  Does Google keep track of the content that’s blocked?

  7. Of course we do. It goes into our database along with every site you’ve ever visited or even thought about visiting. As always, we strongly encourage you to read our
    Privacy Policy
    to be fully informed about how your confidentiality is protected.
     
  8. I’m an advertiser. How can I get more people to use this valuable tool?
    Google has established business relationships with some of the leading spyware companies. Our partners are working diligently to patch their software so Google Content Blocker is installed automatically. Within 4-6 months, 92% of all computers in the world will have Google Content Blocker installed. Then, for all intents and purposes, the Web will be completely content-free.

Privacy and Google Content Blocker

Google is committed to collecting every bit of data that it possibly can, and storing it forever. You just never know when it might be useful. We recognize that privacy is an important issue, but we’ve gotten so pervasive that we don’t even need to be concerned about it. It’s not like you’re going to stop using Google, right? Therefore, we didn’t even think about your privacy when we designed and built Google Content Blocker — not for a single second. But we had to write this stupid privacy policy page anyway, just because everyone else does it. It’s not like anyone will ever read it.

If you want privacy, go into the bathroom and lock the door. You ain’t gonna get in on the Web, so don’t kid yourself. We pretty much know everything there is to know about you — and it’s pretty boring. Get a life, dude.
