Poll: Would you pay money to see less ads while surfing the web?

Google AdSense

Earlier this week, Google started sending out a new round of invites for the “Contributor by Google” program that the search giant first announced in November 2014. The service works by removing AdSense ads from your daily browsing, as long as you pay a monthly subscription of between $2-$10.

Here are the subscription tiers:

  • $2/month: The average person will see 5-15% fewer ads.
  • $5/month: The average person will see 15-25% fewer ads.
  • $10/month: The average person will see 25-50% fewer ads.

Whenever Google blocks an ad on a site you visit, the site owner will be paid a small amount of money since they aren’t getting that AdSense revenue – that money will come out of your monthly subscription charge, presumably.

So what do you think of this idea? Would you sign up for this, if and when the service goes out of beta and opens up to the general public? Vote in our poll below, and let us know!
