    Will Ad Blocking software affect Google Shopping
    It crossed my mind that things like AVG's "Do Not Track" which blocks ad networks, and Firefox's Ad Block Plus feature which blocks actual ads, will Google Shopping listings appear since they are technically product listing ads through Adwords? I know the default for Ad Block Plus allows ads on Google, but a simple toggle in config will change that (as I did).
    This is also a long term question. As these type of add-ons, plug-ins, extensions, and software become more popular, aside from putting an end to things like Adwords reducing income for websites, will Google Shopping become useless?

    I think Google shopping results are not ads, so they still shown in the search.

    I am using Ad Block plus and Do Not Track scripts.

    But browsing on mobile devices is becoming more and more popular, so don't forget those ads on mobile devices.
