How to disable or remove +1 from Adsense

Google's Adsense program announced sometime ago that Adsense Ads especially the ones with image and rich media ads will get a +1 button. The +1 button has been added for people to +1 ads and therefore when a friend sees that another friend has liked this ad they will also want to check it out. This might bring in much more revenue for publishers. The idea has been to create social ads. So by default if you have your ads set to display image and rich media ads, it comes along with a +1 button. The button shows recommendations from people and increase the ads social value.

Now this is still in a testing stage and you as a blog owner or publisher can experiment with it. You can choose to have the +1 button or remove it. It helps increase revenue for some and might not work as good for others. You will need to decide which ads work best for you.

How to remove the +1 button from your Google Adsense ads
1. Login to Adsense
2. Click on Allow & block ads
3. Click on advanced settings (left-hand column)
4. Under social ads preference click on the box next to the tick symbol and you get a stop symbol
5. Click stop and the +1 button will stop appearing on your ads.
