How to Remove Unwanted Ads and Links from your Blog

Over in the Blogger Support Forums we're seeing more and more reports from users complaining about unwanted ads and links appearing on their Blogs.

This article will help explain why this is happening and how you can fix it.

This is normally caused by one of 3 things

1) Malware on your computer

2) A Malicious Extension/Addon that you have installed in your browser

3) A Malicious Gadget that you’ve added to your site

To check/fix follow these steps

1) Disable all your Extensions in your browser, restart it and then check you site. If the problem is fixed then you know that one of your extensions is to blame. Add them back one at a time until the problem returns so that you can identify the malicious Extension

In Chrome you access your Extensions by first clicking on the Tools Menu



Then select Tools and then Extensions.



Simply Disable the Extension by UnTicking the Enable option.


For other browsers you will need to refer to their instructions about disabling/removing Addons and Extensions.

2) If you have disabled all your Extensions/Addon and you are still seeing this issue, then you should remove all 3rd Party Gadgets on from your blog until you find the one causing the issue.

Goto your Layouts section in Blogger.



Go through and remove any 3rd Party Gadgets one by one until you find the one causing the issue.



3) If you are still seeing this issue, then you need to run a Malware scanner on your whole computer.

If you have done all of those then create a Support Ticket in the Blogger Support Forums

It's the first time I look for something online and easily find the solution which is so simple and easy and that actually WORKS!

Thanks for sharing this article..but since I followed your instructions,..the same thing that happened. My site still not approve by Webmaster and my ads still running. What should I do to fix this problem?

DarkUFO said...

Manuel Cadag I'm not sure what this has to do with Webmaster?

I would suggest you post in the Webmaster Support forum here

Thanks for your help, I have done everything and ran Spybot Search & Destroy but the Links Bucks Ads are still there! Is there anything else you can recommend?

DarkUFO said...

@782f58e1aa6ffccaed843ec60c46d25e:disqus Have you definately disabled All Extensions/Addons?

What's your site address?

rita egwu said...

please my site address is http://ritaegwu.blogspot.com/ please help me check. I have removed all the extensions and the "ads not by this site" is still flashing all over the place please help

MissKimberlyJoy said...

You're the man! But is there a way to prevent this from ever happening again? Is there an online scanner or toolbar that can alert me the same way AVG alerts me when I have a virus? It's like everytime I buy a domain and link it to a Blogger blog this always happens.

Mary @ Secret Obsession said...

Wee thank you so much! the annoying ads are gone!

Stacy said...

Great post and very thorough. You don't address my problem though. I have Disqus installed on my site and it shows up on every post on the main page, however, I've added two other pages. The About Me actually predates adding Disqus and it doesn't show there. That didn't bother me much since it doesn't get comments that often. But I have recently added a new page called #BundtBakers that might get more. How can I get Disqus to show on all secondary pages, please. My link is here: http:www.foodlustpeoplelove.com
Many thanks in advance!

DarkUFO said...

Hi Stacy I don't think the standard Disqus comments install is intended to display on Pages. I know that they don't on my site and I personally would not want them to display.

Probably best to contact Disqus Support and ask them if they have any instructions for adding the Disqus comments to Blogger pages

You can contact them here

Stacy said...

Thank you. Will do!

You have a great weblog and I like your style of writing about this stuff. Keep up the good work!

americangypsyliving said...

Hi-- I followed a thread from Google Product Forums. Thanks for your help. Quick question-- Why do you include the number "300" on the product forums, but not here? Do I actually need to add that number when typing within the "A HOST" section at GoDaddy? I totally cannot figure that out. Thanks for the help!

DarkUFO said...

Hi,

The 300 is known as the TTL or Time To Live. Which is basically how long your register refreshes your changes.

Some hosts don't allow you to change that.

I would just ignore the 300 part if you are unsure.

Sarah Lee said...

I like your post a lot! You should write some more on this!Great job coming with such terrific post!

Sarah said...

Thank you so much! You solved my long standing issue!

Mark said...

I am having difficulty with my sister's blog, if you go to www.nickikinickie.co.uk it will redirect you to nickikinickie.blogspot.co.uk but the blogspot address is loaded in the address bar instead of the www. address remaining.

When I go into blogger and change teh custom domain to the www. it then comes up with nickikinickie.blogspot.co.uk has been moved to www.nickikinickie.co.uk please click to redirect, which when you do it simply redirects you to the same page (the re-direct page).

Can you please help? If you can, please reply to my email address that I left you.

Thanks

DarkUFO said...

Hi @disqus_dSLphsv4L5

Your DNS settings are not correct. You need the 4 ANAME records as indicated in the post as well as the 1 CNAME record.

Susan Estes said...

thanx

Bret said...

I tried many sites. GoogleDocs seems to able to preview MODE only, and its frustrating bs all we want is a file, not a preview of the file! That's why we are embedding! Get a clue, Google! I used Slideshare.net. It looks the most natural on my site, however the screen goes back to advertize Slideshare site and won't let people see the document for long enough. This is solvable however, you can see this doc in fullscreen mode as an option.
Another option is save a pdf as image. Load will be longer but no more weirdness.

art brodsky said...

I can't get rid of the preview pane either. I can fix the sizing, but the pane still stays.

DarkUFO said...

art brodsky I'd suggest asking in the Google Docs forum as they will probably have an expert who will be able to assist

jesus martinez said...

Hi i added the A record and the Cnames to my domain 24 hours ago and is not working, andy suggestion?? www.bolsatelite.com.mx

DarkUFO said...

The seem setup correctly to me when I look at the settings here

http://who.is/dns/bolsatelite.com.mx

Try doing Steps 1) , 2) and 3) again. That normally fixes it.
