As per the Google Adsense guidelines, you cannot click on ads displayed on your own website for which you’re earning money. Likewise, you’re not supposed to excessively display or view your own web pages that contain Adsense ads. This is what Google states in this regard:
“Simply viewing your pages yourself will not jeopardize your good standing in the AdSense program – however, please continue to avoid clicking on any ads, and don’t reload your pages excessively. We take the issue of invalid clicks and page impressions very seriously and have a dedicated team of specialists, as well as automated systems, to flag and review any unusual activity.”
However, the fact remains that you have to regularly visit your own web pages for cross-referencing purposes or for testing purposes or otherwise. So, what to do to disable or block the Adsense ads if you need to view your own web pages excessively to ensure that you don’t commit violation of the Google Adsense policies? In short, how to view your own website pages without having the Adsense ads? Or, in other words, how to block Adsense ads on your computer?
