Noisy lifter on the vehicle are caused by a number of factors like filter type, type of oil, the lubrication system, mileage of the car and its mechanical condition among others. To keep them quiet, you should drive the car around a bit to warm up the engine and then check the oil level with a dipstick, using an oil filter with an anti-drain-back valve (ADBV) and check the valve clearance of the vehicle.
Noisy lifters means you have a problem that needs to be repaired. If you don't care about repairing the engine and expect it to be on it's last legs then put some heavier oil in there or drop in some Marvel Mystery Oil with every oil change. I do recommend getting the valve assembly looked at since loose parts do create poor performance and extra costs down the road that will exceed just replacing the assembly now.
You can quiet the noisy lifters, in your automobiles engine, by using a heavier weight motor oil. You can also replace the lifters, but this would be very expensive.
