How to Get Rid of Sponsored Links From Google

To raise revenue, Google displays sponsored links along with your search results that are loosely based on your search query. While these links are occasionally useful, some find the extra results add clutter to their Web browsing experience. You can cut down on the amount of sponsored links you see.

Step

Download and install Firefox. This free, open-source Web browser has expanded features that allow you to customize your Web browsing experience. Navigate to http://www.mozilla.com/firefox and click "Download." Unzip the archive and run the installation program.

Step

Open Firefox. Click "Tools," then select "Add-ons." In the search field, type "Adblock."

Step

Click on "Adblock Plus" and click "Add to Firefox..." You'll be prompted on whether you are sure you want to add this plug-in. Choose "Yes" each time.

Step

Restart your browser when prompted. When your browser restarts, you'll be prompted to subscribe to an Adblock subscription list. Choose the "EasyList" option and click "Subscribe."

Step

Browse without ads. You will no longer see Google-sponsored links or other bothersome advertisements.
