How to block Google Ads on Windows computer?

If you, like me, hate ads and malicious websites there is a simple solution for all your problems.

As a bonus it’s not slowing down your browser like those ad blocking plugins with their tens of thousands of rules.

For this post I’ll show you how to block Google AdSense and Yahoo ads but you can use any ad network or website. Also, it’s good idea to block ads on your computer when you work a lot on your website so you cant make any accidental clicks since clicking on ads on your own site can get your account closed and get you accused of click fraud.

Hello world!

Hello fellow geeks or geek wannabes ūüôā
This is post number one and according to geek tradition it simply must start with standard

Hello World!

Okay, now once we got that out of the way (and are now for sure that it’s working), I want to discuss what is this blog all about.¬†Well, I’m self thought PHP/MySQL developer and Linux System administrator. Except that I do fairly good with lots of other coding tools (like Java, Visaul Basic…), but I really like web developmental the most and this is why I’m going to write mostly about that. I have split the blog in few areas:

  • Just Sayin’ – in here I’ll post about various stuff that come up on my mind and that don’t fit in any other category
  • Server Administration – in here I’ll try to write tutorials, guides and tips that can be useful to any admin (beginner¬†or expert)
  • Web¬†Development¬†– I’ll write in here about various stuff including but not limited to: php, javascript, Ajax, jQuery, Prototype, Smarty, Code¬†Igniter…
  • WordPress¬†– is one of my¬†favorite¬†web¬†development¬†tools. It’s easy to use and customize and I love working with it, so I’ll devote a whole category just to it.

Make sure you bookmark the site so you can find it later more easily or subscribe to our feed to keep updated. I don’t need to mention that you need to press CTRL+D to add site to bookmarks, right? Your Geek too! Geeks know this kind of stuff!
