Ad targeting

Opt out of user-based advertising

You can opt out of showing ads that are based on users’ interests, demographics, and Google Account information.

What happens when you opt out

  • Advertising platforms that are eligible for the AdSense auction (Authorized Buyers, Display & Video 360, and Google Ads) won’t use visitation information from your site to help infer interests and demographics
  • Google Ads and Display & Video 360 won’t add visitation information from your site to users' Google Accounts.
  • Ads you've blocked by category, by advertiser URL, or using the Ad review center won’t appear to users through user-based advertising.
  • The opt out only applies to AdSense for content.
  • You might decrease the number of ads competing to appear on your site, which may decrease your potential earnings.
Can’t opt out based on previous interactions
