Blocking an ad from being seen

Top Contributor

Hi Everyone :-)

I know i can choose not to see ads. I dont want to block all ads from being seen.
Usually with display ads you can click a specific ad and choose not to see it anymore.
I'm cranky atm, there is one ad on a particular site that i am a member of that navigates me to a full page

ad any time my mouse so much as seems to go near a corner of it .. grrrr
So ok.i click the top right corner x and two buttons come up.. ad covers the page or stop seeing this ad

the thing is though, it is so mouse sensitive, i do not even have a chance to click one of those before the ad triggers

AGAIN taking me to the ad page again
GRRRRRR

 

Your thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks
Bronwyn :-)

 Hi @Bronwyn V;

Google is not a member of the "online choices". (To my recollection it was once a member... Not sure though...) So, you cannot exclude ads from a specific advertiser.

http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/

http://www.youronlinechoices.com.au/

 

Google has its own "exclude ads" setting: either by clicking on the  X - as you mentioned, or by opting out from your  list of interests in your ad setting section, on your Googe account.

I'm not familiar with another option;

Thanks @MosheTLV :_)

the ad has changed to a different one today, that does not behave in the same way re the mouse hover - thank goodness!

I was nearly at the stage of screaming and tossing something at my monitor :-/

 

Cheers
