I don’t think they can be blocked. They are promoted websites. It’s like showing a closely related video on YouTube.

Of course they can be blocked. All my browsers are blocking them except Brave, which is kind of embarrassing for a browser supposed to block ads.

You can try it yourself with Firefox + uBlock Origin, no Google ads in search results will be shown. See attached image:


Am sorry just checked on my end and no such ad came up or any ad. In other to vet it even futher I also used and saw no such thing

Those are first party ads. First party ads are not blocked by default but on desktop we have context menu blocker which can be used to block them. There is not context menu blocker on Mobile yet.

cc: @Serg we should probably add context menu blocker on Android as well.
