Google Contributor is a new service that gives Internet users the ability to get rid of annoying ads on websites for a monthly fee. The service works with specific partner websites. In an online landscape where making money is difficult, the concept of paying to get rid of ads could turn out to be a great way to make money off the web.

People participating in the Google Contributor program can set their own monthly fee -- between $1 and $3 -- based on the level of support they are willing to provide to participating websites.

Google hasn't made it completely clear how much of the monthly fee is actually passed on to publishers. However, news site Mashable, image aggregator Imgur and satire newspaper The Onion have all signed up as partners.
