How To Remove Ads From Google Search Results

Although in some occasions advertisement in Google search results might be helpful, some users prefer not to have them. There are various ways to remove ads not only from Google search result pages, but also from other websites. However, there is a really easy way to remove ads just from Google pages.

All you have to do is to add a parameter – “output=googleabout” behind Google’s search URL and it will show nothing except the Google logo, results (titles & description) and footer. No image search, video search or any other link on the header, nothing.

Example URL : http://www.google.com/search?output=googleabout

Another not-so-cool way is to use this, which will show nothing in the results but titles, not even the descriptions will be displayed. I’m sure most users would not prefer this as you won’t have any idea what the content is about without clicking on it. So, do you prefer Google with ads or without ads?

    It is really nice if we can omit these ads and can get a clean page. Thanks for the info.

    Want to get rid of advertisements on Google SERPs?

    There is a script for Greasemonkey what will set the visibility of the top and the right ad block on all google result pages to ‘hidden’.

    That way you browse Google “ad-free”. Works on all TLDs.

    That’s a bold statement you are making there! But I agree with you all the way. One can not be careful enough especially when living in large cities.
