Simple And Effective Method To By Pass CPALead Survey Ads

Aafrin March 19, 2010 15

Today, i came across an add network implemented in several site. The advert requires user to complete certain types of survey before the user can view the site content. I did but still the advert didn’t allow me to view the site content. I am not sure what went wrong. I had to find my own way of getting into the site. I am sharing the tips for others who have faced similar problem.I will be using the following page for the case study.

Method 1

This is one of the easiest way and useful for people who are not really a tech geek.

1. Visit the url that contains the survey advert that need to be bypassed. You can use any type of browser’s but for this tutorial  i will be using  Google chrome.

2. Go to Control > Developer > View  or use the shortcut key “CTRL + U”. Once the source code loaded highlight and copy the whole code. Alternatively you can use “CTRL + A” to highlight all the codes.

3.Open up notepad and paste the code. Then scroll down, locate the following  highlighted code and delete the code.

4. Tap CTRL + S in your keyboard to initiate the save file dialog. Change the file type and set the name as shown in the image below. You can replace the filename with anything you prefer and click Save

5.  Go to the location where you have saved the file. Click and run the file. It will open up on your default browser and shows the pages without the advert. Check the screenshot on 1st step to see the differences

Method 2

1. Go to start > run and paste the following location “%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\” without the quotes and click enter.

At this point, you should see a folder structure something similar to below.

2. Open the hosts file in notepad and add and Refer to the image below.

3.  Go to file and click save. Then exit the hosts file.

4. Now visit the URL directly from your browser, the site will load without any adverts.

Method 3

Another way is to install grease-monkey add on script in Firefox to get rid of the advert. You can get the script from here. I have not tested the following method but the author of the blog claims that it works.

Method 4

You can also register on this site — The site offers free bypass service to their user. The site are able to bypass survey type advertisement from multiple site including those from

Method 5

You can use an online tool provided by — Here is the tutorial on how to use the tool to by pass the advetisements —

    Can you add another method?

    Have a look at:

    This site has a bookmarklet that you save and it removes surveys. It also has a Firefox and Chrome addon which removes their surveys. It is easy to use and works very well.

      the survey-remover option sucks. it’s’ a bookmarklet that you have to pay to enable. don’t waste your time when the method here works perfectly. thanks!

        You do not have to pay to enable the bookmarklet – that’s only the addon!

        The method here is just a massive fuss! All I do is click on the bookmarklet installed off that site and it removes the surveys every time! Besides, the bookmarklet does the same thing but automatically in code.
