Remove YouTube Ads With This Stupidly Simple Trick

Redditors have discovered a straightforward thanks to removing ads from YouTube videos by adding a name period.

The trick – first reported on Reddit and subsequently by Android Police – involves merely placing a period (or full stop) after the .com within the URL of the video you’re watching. This seems to eliminate all pre-roll ads, which may appear midway through the video and advertising overlays.

It seems the trick only works in specific browsers. In my tests, it worked in Google Chrome on both Mac desktop and Android mobile, as in Chromium-based browsers like Microsoft Edge’s remake and, therefore, the non-Chromium Safari. However, it failed in Firefox, where inserting the amount returned me to the YouTube homepage.

It has to be said. There are easier ways to dam YouTube ads in web browsers. For instance, plugins like Enhancer for YouTube allow you to get rid of ads at the press of an icon and perform other handy tricks, like change the playback speed or resize the video window.

It’s probably only a matter of your time before this trick is disabled. With YouTube advertising already suffering within the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Google won’t want to form it any easier for viewers to dodge income-generating ads.

Block ads from appearing on my YouTube channel and videos

This article is for creators within the YouTube Partner Programme who want to form changes to ads that run on their Content.

If you are a viewer, glance at this text to find out more about ads you see on videos.

As a YouTube partner, you’ll filter the AdSense ads that appear next to your YouTube videos and channel.

Here’s the way to filter ads from general or specific categories or specific AdSense advertiser domains:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account and attend the Allow & block ads tab.
  2. In the top left, click Menu.
  3. Click Blocking controls, then YouTube host.
    •  To dam specific advertiser URLs: Click the Advertiser URLs tab within the high bar across the page’s highest. Enter URLs within the box given, then click Block URLs.
    • To block ads by general or sensitive categories: Click the acceptable tab within the high bar across the page’s highest. Use the controls on the page to permit or block categories.

Changes are automatically saved on the selection and will be reflected on your channel within 24 hours.

Your filter list only blocks ads served via AdSense. Filtering specific domains won’t prevent ads served via Google Ad Manager.

Block advertiser URLs in AdSense

You can block specific ads from appearing on your pages. This is often helpful once you don’t need to display particular ads – for instance, you would possibly want to dam ads resulting in competitors’ sites.

You can block ads that link (or click through) to specific URLs. This way, you’ll easily block all ads that are linked to your competitor at www.example.com. By entering a top-level domain like www.example.com, you’ll also block all ads that link to subdirectories below that domain.

You can block a maximum of 500 URLs.

Block at the site level

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Blocking controls.
  3. Make sure “Content” is chosen.
  4. Under Content, click the location that you want to line the block on.
    • Tip: If your site isn’t listed, you’ll add it. Find out how to feature a replacement site on your site’s list.
  5. Click Manage Advertiser URLs.
  6. On the ‘Advertiser URLs’ page, enter the URLs that you want to dam.
    • You can separate multiple URLs with commas or hard returns.
  7. Click Block URLs.
    • Ads from blocked URLs should stop showing on your pages within 24 hours.

Block at the product level

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Blocking controls.
  3. Click your product. For instance, click Content for AdSense for Content.
  4. Click All sites.
  5. Click Manage Advertiser URLs.
  6. On the ‘Advertiser URLs’ page, enter URLs that you want to dam.
    • You can separate multiple URLs with commas or hard returns.
  7. Click Block URLs.
    • Ads from blocked URLs should stop showing on your pages within 24 hours.
