Google SearchMenu sponsored links ads

Postby rpalmeri » Sat Jan 01, 2011 8:52 pm

How can I block Google SearchMenu sponsored links ads?
When I do a search in Google, the first item in the result is often an ad, labeled "SeachMenu sponsored links" . I am using Firefox 3.6.13, and have subscritions to EasyList (USA) and Fanboy's list.
I've added the following filters:
http://*.googlesyndication.com/*
http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js
/>http://www.google.com/extern_js/
but still see these annoying ads as the first in the list of results.
thanks, Adblock Plus community! :shock:

Do you use the SearchMenu extension ?

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10722/

For a very few search terms, this version will insert sponsored links into the google.com search results (labeled as 'SearchMenu Sponsored Links')

I don't use the search menu and yet I get the silly "Google SearchMenu sponsored links ads". I'm already using the exception rules mentioned above, still not working. :(

hi
you can go to your google account preferences and block the site so that it will never appear again as a search's result
i just did it and it works.

Fast Video Download "installs Search Menu" and gets you all the advertising. Delete FVD. Gone.
