Making Reading Articles on the Web Easier

I read a lot of articels and blog posts on the web. Web pages are messy. There are ads, links and other clutter all over them. Income for websites is generated from advertisments. Advertisers pay for ad space based on web traffic. Therefore the creator/s of the website want to keep you on their site as long as possible, hence the clutter. I am fine with the clutter in between reading. I would like to know what other content is on the site. But when I am reading its distracting and I don't like it. What to do?
