Ask your users to stop using an Ad Blocker, allow ads, and support your site. Why not? You deserve it. It’s now a lot easier than ever to create a popup message for ad block users, leveraging Google’s Funding Choices.
The Ad blocking message is displayed if all the following conditions are met:
- Ad blocking software is installed and detected
- The user refused to allow ads on the site, and
- The user has not bought a Contributor pass for the site or has not opted into the Custom Choice (e.g., has not become a subscriber)
The use of Ad Blocker can be a sign of a bad user experience. It is important that you address this elephant in the room and find out how you can further optimize and convert this into a money-making machine.
Measure/Collect your site’s AdBlock data:
Step1: Log into your Google Ad Manager account
Step 2: Go to Privacy & Messaging
Step 3: Click ‘Go to Funding Choices’
Step 4: Select the right account. Note that your email address needs to have Admin access to the AdSense account mapped with your Google Ad Manager in order to proceed.
Apps you manage are automatically listed on the Funding Choices “Apps” page.
