A couple of years ago, there were no ads on a number of the major search engines.
The result was that you’d have to manually scroll through hundreds of free web pages in order to find a specific search term.
With ad blockers, it’s all done for you.
But there’s one thing you need to know about those ads: They’re all paid.
Ad blockers aren’t designed to block ads, so there’s no way to know whether a site’s been paid for its placement.
That’s the problem, because many people who are looking for a specific keyword, or just a specific ad, don’t have the time to research and check a site out.
Instead, they just go straight to the Google search bar.
And while this approach can save you some time and money, it also puts your data at risk.
According to the New York Times, some search-engine crawlers will report ads that are paid for.
That could be because Google knows that you’re searching for a particular term and therefore doesn’t want you to leave a negative impression.
Ad blocking is a controversial topic, and some people are against it because it prevents people from accessing content they might otherwise enjoy.
But for those who prefer the convenience of a browser extension, ad blocking is the answer.
If you don’t like ads, you don, either.
