Google Content Blocker

Posted By Darren Rowse 12th of May 2005 Pro Blogging News 3

ProBloggers everywhere will love Google’s latest feature – the Google Content Blocker that removes annoying content from pages so that readers just see ads. I like this section especially:

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.

Very amusing.

  2. Wow, April 1st comes round quicker each year!

    Though non-threatening, I’m surprised the creators didn’t add some ‘phish’ style to make it look like it really came from Google. :)

  3. […] 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. […]
