Google: pay $ monthly and in return see an ad-free web on participating sites


Google has announced launching an ad-free web: If you are sick of ads, you can pay something between $1-$3 a month to not get the ads.

Google’s Contributor program replaces ad revenue with a monthly subscription fee: participating websites show no adverts to users paying into the scheme and in return these sites collect part of their contributions.

The scheme has been launched as an experiment this week with half a dozen partners currently signed up: Urban Dictionary, The Onion, Science Daily, WikiHow, Mashable and Imgur.
