Some of these advertisements may be for products or services that you are actually searching for, but many are not.

    I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.

    Great, have not removed any ads to this point. Might get more relevant ads once I do this option. Not sure why I never have tried removing any of the ads I just do not want to appear on Facebook. Looks simple enough to me. Happy New Year Mark.
