Good evening Piholes,
My job requires incessant google searches. I’m talking 1000’s a day and they all involve shopping and product pages. Google’s shopping thumbnails are very helpful and I use them constantly.
In short, Google’s links are a riddled with redirect links and are a nightmare when combined with PiHole. I want to use extensive blocklists, including Wall3y’s (spelling), and I haven’t been able to locate a viable solution to what I’m looking to do.
Has anyone figured out how to do the following?
- Google Search Result Redirection Links
- Block all the unnecessary redirection pages entirely
- Allow & only pass final destination URL’s
I really, really, reallllly want to be able to utilize PiHole for my work. However, whitelisting all of those google ad pages will significantly impact PiHole’s ability to do it’s “thing” everywhere else.
- I’ve tried Tapermonkey scripts & Chrome addons to extract redirection links from Google Search Results
- They don’t seem to work
- I stumbled across THIS PAGE and it looks like a promising lead
- Is there a way to increase the # of google shopping thumbnails search results on the standard google search page? Example here.
Anyone who is able to help me will go down as the best person on the web and earn many brownie points in my book. I will be eternally grateful for a solution!
Thanks a ton,
