I am sure that this is a very interesting topic to discuss. Adblockers. I am sure most of us here use adblockers because we hate all those annoying ads, especially, those pop up ones. However, as a webmaster, I hate adblockers because most of my revenue from my website comes from ads and adblockers are hurting my revenue.
There are a few ways to get past adblockers but there are some disadvantages with it.
Display a message to encourage people to whitelist your website. This may make active members whitelist your website. However, if you have too many ads, they may prefer seeing the message rather than the ads. This method is not guaranteed to work although it is better than doing nothing.
Disallow access for people who use adblockers. This is a method that is useful to some extent, especially if you have a very popular website. Forbes use this method, yet they have an alexa of 222. It seems to be working for them but if you have a small website, people may rather leave than remove their adblockers and you will lose traffic.
What are your thoughts on Adblockers? Do you think Adblockers should be banned?
