Stop A Particular YouTube Ads From Showing

We all love YouTube because of the various free content available therein. As much as we love YouTube, most of us hate the idea of having to watch an ad first before the main video will be shown to us. If this is your case, there is good news.

The good news is, you can have YouTube free from ads by paying a token as a subscription fee for YouTube Red, the ads free version of YouTube.
If this option is not good for you, then there is pretty not much you can do about it.

But what if what you hate is not the fact that you are being shown ads (because you can skip them) but because the ads that they are showing you seems to be repetitive, inappropriate or even irrelevant to you, what can you can do about this? Can you opt-out from seeing that particular ads? again, there is good news, and the good news is, YES, you can opt-out from seeing that particular ads you are not comfortable with.
So here is how to go about it.

  1. As the pre-roll ads plays, click on the Why am I see this ad? button which is represented by the icon which is by the bottom-right of the video towards Visit Advertiser's Site link.
    When you click on it, the ad video will be paused and a menu will appear telling how Google determine which ads to show to you, you can read through if you like, if you do not like, then move to step two.
  2. Click on the Stop seeing this ad link in the menu which is below the explanation.
    After you have done that, Google will not show you that ad again, at least until the present campaign for it finishes.
  3. After you have click the Stop seeing this ad link, then next menu you will see is Google asking you to give a feedback to them as you why you do not like to see the ad again. This feedback is optional, but I will recommend that you tell them because it will help them to better understand which type of ads you do not like seeing.
That is it. You have successfully learnt how to stop a particular YouTube ads from showing.
