You can clear your cookies and your cache, but what you truly want is your browser to send DO NOT TRACK requests to the websites you visit.
Whichever browser you use, most likely has a setting that enables/disables this. It won't solve the problem 100%, but it will lessen the likely hood of getting the same ads served to you over and over again.
Especially the junky ones.

An accountant's fees, people to answer the phone and develop the advertisement, the software costs, the server costs. Now some of that can be done by the owner and one other person but the rest is not cheap. Sometimes the people who develop the site and supply the software take a percentage, but first there has to be a base.

In firefox, tool menu > option >privacy tab there should be an option at the top on tracking.
"Do Not Track" is a preference that users can set in web browsers to inform websites that they do not want to be tracked, which may help protect them against forms of tracking on the web. Currently, IE10, IE9, IE8, and Firefox support various methods of tracking protection. Today, there is no single definition of what it means to be "tracked," so expressing a preference does not guarantee users that they will be able to block all web sites and content that they may view as being associated with tracking behavior. Users should consider which method of tracking protection is most effective for them.
