Similarly to block Google Adsense Ads from non-premium adsense publishers,(which are light and dont steal much of my bandwidth) simply add following line to your hosts file:

# block google adsense publishers
127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 www.googleadservices.com
# blocked google adsense publishers


You can also block Google analytics from tracking you

# block google analytics from tracking you
127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com
127.0.0.1 ssl.google-analytics.com
# blocked google analystics from tracking you
