How do I get rid of the Google Ads? isageneric 3/24/10 2:21 PM
We are paying for Google Site Search, and yet we see Google ads showing up in our site's results. I want to get rid of them. Where I do switch these off?

Hi there isageneric.

If you mean Google Custom Search, then your ads should be removed. Are you sure your using the correct codes?

Google custom search serves ads by default. 

Google site search, paid version, shouldn't display ads.

We'll while prathap can only tell you so much it seems. I'll tell you the rest. to disable ads on your search results without even paying (i imagin it's the same for paid users) go to the custom search you wish to remove the ads on. near the bottom you should see Preferences, then Advertising status choose
Do not show ads on results pages (for registered non-profits, universities, and government agencies only)

You'll be all set and no ads will no longer appear. Cheers!

Please ToS/License agreement before using "Do not show ads on results pages (for registered non-profits, universities, and government agencies only)"

Google policy regarding displaying ads is a bit confusing, in Features they say ""
Ad-free search results With Google Site Search, ads are not included alongside your search results, so searchers will be more likely to stay on your website. http://www.google.com/sitesearch/#adfree

and TOS they say that only registered non-profit, govermental organization can only disable those, so this is a bit confusing? can any one please advice how I disable the sponsored links? it seems like I have wasted $100 

Thanks

Prathap, I am managing a custom search engine for a non-profit and the ads still appear on our search results. I have selected "Do not show ads on results pages (for registered non-profits, universities, and government agencies only)", but the ads remain.

What do I need to do to get these removed?

Thank you,
George

There is another thread talking about this. We are investigating the issue. I'll provide you an update as soon as I complete the investigation.

My Charity's web site no longer gets Forex Trading or DVD sales ads. Thank you Google for responding and solving our problem.
