Blocking Banner Ads

What is a banner ad? A banner ad runs along the top of a web page and is a hyperlink—as are most other embedded ads. Typically, a banner ad is 468 pixels wide by 60 pixels high (this allows them to fit on smaller browser windows, for example).

You can limit banner ads in several ways. If you control your own proxy server, you can configure it to block certain sites. When an attempt to access these sites is made, the proxy server simply discards the request. Another technique, for those not using a proxy server, is to configure your firewall to block certain sites. Most firewalls allow this type of configuration.
