Google allows third parties to use information by the user to then show ads that they think are going to be relevant to the person searching. You should be doing some search engine optimization (SEO) to bring in a good ranking in the search engines and also to pull relevant ads. If you are a website owner using Adsense then it is possible that your ads do not relevant to you because of your settings. By opting out of the third party ads this will let you see what your ads look like and make sure they are SEO optimized.

To Opt Out of Adsense Third Party Ads by Google:

Step 1: Log into your Adsense account. You must have a Google Adsense account. You can also click any Adsense ad on the spot when it says "ads by Google". This will bring up ad information.

Step 2: Click on the My Account tab. Under this you need to look about 3/4 of the way down to find third party ads preference. Click on edit. You have two choices -- allow or deny access (opt out) of third party ads using your information to try to make the Adsense ads more relevant.

Step 3: Click on save changes to make sure you save your opt out of the third party ads by Google. You will need to monitor your site. Sometimes changes do not get saved or things happen when you'll need to go back in and reset your settings.

Step 4: Check your interest based ad settings. You should also opt out of the interest based ads from Google as well. Although this is your choice. If you are having success with your Adsense campaign with your settings like they are right now then changing them will either bring you a lot more money or you could stay the same. Run a trial to see which works better.

Step 5: To permanently opt out of Adsense third party advertising you need to download an advertising cookie opt-out plug in. You will have to opt out of Adsense third party advertising from every browser that you use if you do use more than one. Of course the best is Firefox though. It is a good idea to use the Adsense opt out cookie plug in because it will run in your browser even if you delete your cookies.

Cookies are tracking codes that are placed in your internet browser every time you visit a website. If you visit a website about finding the highest paying keywords and you are doing a lot of keyword research, looking for keyword tools with Google then your interest is going to be shown as keyword research, search engine optimization, website analysis, and other related topics.

By changing your settings you will hopefully get more relevant ads. Since this is Google's attempt to make the site more user friendly this can mean that it takes away from website owners who are not running an Adwords campaign. It seems like it is getting a little bit harder to write for the best optimization. It can't go without being said that the information is not your personal type info like your email, etc.

I try switching off the Public service ad. I end up with lower earning. I think opting out of third party advertising will have the same effect. It seems Google discourages users to change the default setting.
