Can I block the ads on startpage.com?

Postby rainbowcat » Fri Apr 05, 2019 12:11 am

I would love to use Startpage.com instead of google for my searches, but these pesky sponsored links at the top makes this almost unusable (because even though they have this tiny little box saying 'ad' in front of them, they just manage to trick me again and again into clicking them, altough I never intend to...)- can I somehow block them?

oooh, aha! Thanks!

I really can't see how these are supposed to be acceptable, since they're so resembling the actual content, IMHO they're even less 'acceptable' than, say, ads on the side that are 1) elsewhere, not right where I expect content 2) clearly identifiable as ads without even looking at them. So that they're much more easy to ignore. Ads are just a pest.

Well anyway, thanks a lot for saving my startpage :D

Why does AdBlockPlus not block Affiliate links? I'd like to know if it blocks certain affiliate banners and links on WordPress blogs.

I can't block a PUP banners in browser. Who can help me? I have long been playing on the http://www.apppicker.com/reviews/21511/Casino-Blackjack-21-app-review-fast-paced-casino-action! And sometimes, there are times when you need to remove pop-up ads! It is annoying! Maybe there is some setting somewhere?

I am using ad block for many years and I found it best option for blocking ads because when i start my beeducated page it sometime redirects to another sites but by using adblock I block all these redirection.
