I sidestep paid ads

Those ads that you could barely tell were ads always bothered me when they appeared at the top of search results, but not just because of their deceptive appearance. Knowing how expensive they were to place there, and believing they were also charged again if you clicked on them, I commenced scrolling down till I found the company's unadulterated search result and clicked there. I don't know if I'm saving the company any money but I don't know how else to get around the Google tax, and maybe have the savings trickle down to the customer(not consumer, I really hate that term, like pre-owned car vs used car.)
