Amit Agarwal has found an interesting URL variable which when added to the Google Search URL string blocks AdWords ads from showing.
If you append the parameter “output=googleabout” to Google Web Search URL, the search results page will not carry any AdSense ads that are otherwise seen on the top and right sections of the page.
So, start your Google searches from google.com/search?output=googleabout and you get to search Google without ads and do so without having to install extensions or Greasemonkey scripts on your computer.
Why would anyone want to block AdWords? Personally I love being served sponsored results because I’m a search marketer, but not everyone loves advertising like we do 🙂
