I've already blocked google.com and google.co.uk from showing ads on my site, but im still getting bazillions of ads for the new google chromebook. because they are all flash ads i cant right-click to get the URL. so i was just wondering if anyone knows the URL which you need to block?

No; they're probably sold on play.google.com - you could try that one, although I'd think google.com would get it.

Have you tried looking for it in your ad review? Supposedly you can even search for specific ads now.

Google isn't the only one selling Nexus or Chromebook so good luck with that!

tried searching for "chrome" "chromebook" "chrome book" "google" and nothing comes up.

that ad review thing is a waste of time i reckon. i've looked through it loads of times and the same ad seems to appear multiple times. you block it once, and when you come back it's still there.

i reckon they must be blocking ads based on the full URL rather than just the domain.

so if you block www.example.com/page.html?id=1 it will just reappear as www.example.com/page.html?id=2, www.example.com/page.html?id=3 and www.example.com/page.html?id=4.

no matter how many times i block an ad in that thing, they just seem to keep coming back. i don't even bother with it anymore.

Most (smart) advertisers test ads with slight variations, so you might block one, but there's still four more in the test with a different call to action, or different image, or changes so small you can barely notice them.

I expect the chromebook will be everywhere for the next four weeks.
