Can't figure out how to click a certain element on IE

Okay, so this is a piece of the HTML code when I inspect the element

I used PixelSearch before but I'm trying to make this all work with IE being hidden.

This is what I got so far

$Site = _IECreate("google.com")
$HTML = _IEDocReadHTML($Site)
If Not StringInStr($HTML, '"states" : {},') Then
    ;CODE TO CLICK THE EXIT BUTTON
EndIf

But I'm not sure how to click the EXIT button because I also try and look inside the HTML for the close class, and I guess that's all different than what inspect element shows because when I search 

<a href="#" class="close">, I get 3 results and these are what I get

If I go testing on google.com, will I be wasting my time?

Yes, because this is not for google.com

Okay so, I went ahead and found the index numbers of all the links on the page by using

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Dim $linklist[1000]
$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.website.com")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)
$iNumLinks = @extended
MsgBox(0, "Link Info", $iNumLinks & " links found")
$i=0
For $oLink In $oLinks
    $linklist[$i] = $oLink.href
    $i+=1
Next
_ArrayDisplay($linklist)

Except, the fucking index's change every refresh, so I went ahead and did this

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global $aBans
$sDelete = "https://www.website.com#"

Dim $linklist[100]
$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.website.com")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
$iNumLinks = @extended
$i = 0
For $oLink In $oLinks
    If $oLink.href == $sDelete Then
        $linklist[$i] = $i

    Else
        $linklist[$i] = ""
    EndIf
    $i += 1
Next

For $i = 0 To UBound($linklist) - 1
    If Not $linklist[$i] = "" Then
        _IELinkClickByIndex($oIE, $i)
    EndIf
Next

But there are multiple buttons with the same Link Address, so that doesn't work either =/

Alright, just throwing out more information here lol.

 

I've also tried

 

$XButtons = _IETagNameGetCollection($Site, "a")
For $XButton In $XButtons
    If $XButton.classname = "close" Then
        _IEAction($XButton, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next
$XButtons = _IETagNameGetCollection($ite, "a")
For $XButton In $XButtons
    If $XButton.classname = "close" And $XButton.href = "#" Then
        _IEAction($XButton, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

And also

$XButtons = _IETagNameGetCollection($Site, "i")
For $XButton In $XButtons
    If $XButton.classname = "icon i-close" Then
        _IEAction($XButton, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

 

But none of these work. Any ideas, ANYONEEE

I understand why you'd obviously like to the URL so you can go ahead and test it yourself, but I supplied the HTML :P

Yeah sure, I'll go ahead and copy paste the HTML, but you saying that I don't want other people's help is obviously incorrect when I show that I've gone through lengths to explain what I'm doing. It just slipped my mind to post the actual HTML instead of a picture
