    I have these kinds of pop up ads that looks like it's coming from Google. These ads do not appear all the time but here and there. How do I get rid of them? Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! They're not from Google--they're from some adware that you probably installed along with some other app (probably a game). The adware causes popup ads, and can also potentially open Google Play Store and direct you to the app page to entice you to install it. You'll have to uninstall apps one by one until the behavior goes away, because it's hard to pinpoint the app that carries the adware. You could try something like Lookout's Ad-Network Scanner & Detector, but I think those apps are mostly effective for ads that appear in the Notification Bar, not popups.

    Welcome to the forums. What device do you have? It's unusual for ads to show up the the Play Store. I don't recall hearing about this before.

    I've also had this problem before, and I found out it was called ad injection. The problem went away from my phone after a factory reset, but that's the only way I found to get rid of it so far though.
