What is Google Content Blocker?

Google's mission is to organize the world's advertising for maximum exposure to Web users. Unfortunately, annoying Web content often overwhelms the page, causing many users to become distracted and overlook the ads.

That's where Google Content Blocker comes in. It effectively blocks all Web site content, leaving only the advertisements.

How come they haven't put some adsense ads on it? missed opportunity.

If they submitted it to google for review, to add adsense, google would laugh or maybe not.

Good job this idea didn't originate at google. The PHDs there would not have removed all the content - but cleverly introduced a filter to remove only 90% of relevant content and leaving the other 10% of dross in place to "enhance" their ads.
