Google Updates Ad Settings

Google has recently updated ad settings pages, which have a new design and more information about your options. You can still disable ads based on your interests from both Google sites and third-party sites. When you do that, you’ll still see ads, but they “will not be based on data Google has associated with your Google Account, and so may be less relevant”.

It’s interesting that Google replaced the section titled “Google ads across the Web” with a new section for signed-out ads, which has 2 separate settings for “ads based on your interests on websites beyond google.com” and “Google Search Ads based on your interests”. Google uses your previous searches and browsing history to improve search ads, but you can disable this feature. AdSense ads also use your browsing history and anonymous demographic details to improve ads.
