The Uncertainty of Making Money from Ads
« on: July 05, 2017, 10:16:31 AM »
Some people might make money from home via ads on websites.  Nonetheless, though, these ads are under attack by ad-blockers.  Therefore, what can website owners do to get around the situation?  Well, one thing involves simply making an ad as a forum or blog link.

I've seen sites which request that you turn off your ad-blocker before they'll allow you access to the site but I'm not sure how difficult that is to implement. I also suspect that some readers will be driven away from your site by a request of that type.

Just as an aside the only reason I've ever used an ad-blocker was to prevent my accidentally clicking AdSense ads on my own blog (a violation of AdSense policy), but I've turned off the ad-blocker because I found that it and other extensions were slowing Google Chrome down. Perhaps with a fast internet connection this isn't a problem but mine is quite slow.

I don't like turning my adblocker off in order to go on a site, but I will do it if I want to be on the site or join the site. It seems like so many have adblockers now, that it might not be worth it to try to make money from ads. It is just one of the ways to make money that might not work anymore.

Is there any other way of making money from a blog? I understand that ad-blockers are blocking affiliate advertising too?

Yep, same. I keep seeing such sites that require you to turn your Adblock off for them if you wish to read the article or continue browsing the web page. I think that's quite clever if I am honest but I still usually don't turn mine off. I just feel safer using it. I think even famous sites like Forbes and so on have that implemented.

Adblock has been around for some time now, surely this isn't a new growing problem or?

In essence, you have a different type of blogs... some are branded kind, some rely on the income from the ads and some get their money through affiliate marketing.

Maybe try making a mobile app for your blog - that way they can't block the ads.

I wouldn't know how to do that. I don't even use apps because I don't have the internet activated on my phone.

Oh, haha. Guess that's not an option then.

However, I did some research about the Adblock detecting that we discussed in the above posts and there seem to be quite some good Wordpress plugins that either detect the AdBlock or are focused around anti-AdBlock. If you own a site or a blog you should look into using them :)

Thanks. I don't use WordPress either though. My blog is on Blogger and they seem to have far less plug-ins.

I'm not keen to ask people to turn off their ad-blockers anyway because I've already had a reader complain about the ads on my blog, as though I had no right to try to make money from my work. I guess in the niche I'm currently writing about getting read means more to me than a little extra income.

Yes adblockers are blocking Amazon, Ebay links too. Some adblockersa rewriting the affiliate links of the published content and replacing it with their own. So that's how they seem to be destroying the publishers. Not much one can do about it. Considering people themselves are supporting adblockers who are basically being the ad owners with data now.

People have become smart these days. They install ad blockers on their browsers. When they check websites, ads wil not be visible. If the ads are not visible, there will be no ad impression. No ad impression means no earning. Because of ad blockers webmasters are losing money. However, we cannot force people to stop doing that, can we?

Adsense is not really a good option to make money in 2017 onwards. Not many people are going to use the browser without adblockers. And this is another reason why many people are going to have issues with the earning. In such case instead of ads, one can go for patreon. But that works out for the creative type of website. So you may not find lot of content driven website surviving due to that part. I guess we just have to find other means and even have to use stopadblock or admiral in such case.

I find it much better to have a request posted that the users should turn off adblock for the site as it helps me further improve such a site. There's also quite a lot of forums/blogs that do that now, it's almost everywhere now come to think of it. With the current adblocks available these days, it's just way too hard to get past them, so might as well have a special request to your fans. I suggest maybe putting a banner over your site that says "If you love my content, please support me by turning adblock for this site as it helps me provide you the best quality services" or something similar.
