Blocking Ads just got easier on Google Chrome. In this article, I will tell you about two Google Chrome extensions that can be used to block advertisements. The extensions are lightweight and won’t make your browser slow in any way.  

Are you tired of annoying pop-ups when you visit a web page? Are you always being redirected when you try to open a website on your Google chrome browser? So many people think that the redirects and pop-ups are strong indications of virus or some sort of malware. Well, yes. A pop-up or redirect might occur on a browser due to virus or malware, but most times that’s not really the case.

Before I tell you how to block Ads on Google Chrome, I want to make something clear. Personally, I think Ads are great. Why? Well, most websites you visit give you free information without getting a dime from you and through Ads, website owners make money and keep their websites up and running for you.

An estimated percentage of about 70% of websites you visits make their money through advertising. So we can generally say that Ads are good. Now, the issue is that website owners become too money cautious and forget about their visitors or users experience. Ads get in the way, users are sometimes tricked to click Ads and so on.

Like I said earlier, ads are good, but when website owners want to increase their ”click-through rate” so badly, they insert ads at annoying places, not minding user experience. When websites owners do this, they leave their visitors with two options.

  • Never visit again.
  • Block ads from showing.

 

This article is dedicated to teaching you how to block Ads on Google Chrome. Trust me when I say that after reading this post and applying its techniques, you will never see those ads again or experience those redirects again.

You may notice that after using these extensions, certain pages will still show pop up’s. The pop up’s on websites like this might not really be advertisements, they might be a call to action that the website owner has put on their website in order to generate sales or income from you subscribing.

Am I talking too much? Please forgive me.

So, you want to block Ads on Google Chrome and keep your browser clean with no distractions whatsoever? Here are some methods to block ads from ever showing again. You will basically need to Install certain plugins or extensions on your Google Chrome browser.
