Allow and block ads

General ad categories

You can block ads from general categories such as Apparel, Internet, Real Estate, and Vehicles. General category blocking is available for ads in a limited set of languages, regardless of the language of the site.

Note that general category blocking is not available in all countries. If you don't see a "General categories" page under your Allow & block ads tab, then general category blocking is not available to you.

Our system classifies ads automatically and we don't rely on advertiser-provided categorization. Our technology will make its best attempt to filter ads from the categories above; however, we don't guarantee that it will block every related ad. If you see that an undesired ad has been displayed, please block that ad by URL or by advertiser using the Ad review center.
