Did your WordPress site visitor getting better and better but not with your Adsense revenue? That’s because most of internet user nowadays are having Adblock software installed on their browser/devices.
They use Adblock is because of security reason and of course no body like intrusive ad right?. But what if your website don’t have annoying or intrusive ad? such as Google Adsense, Infolinks or other Ad Networks that obviously not intrusive at all.
So! in this post we want to share whit you fellow bloggers / site owners who also work as Adsense publisher. How you can politely tell your visitors who use Adblock to adding your site to their Adblock Withe list, by using WordPress plugin.
There is some of plugins that you can simply install it on your WordPress site. But in this post I will recommended three plugins that I’ve use and test my self on some of my site. And so far it works to make my audience “understand.”
How to Politely Tell Your Site Visitor to Adding Your Site to Their Adblock White List
Here’s how to politely tell your site visitor by using these awesome plugins for WordPress. These plugins has proven works great!
These three plugins that you can use to block AdBlocker
- Ad Blocking Advisor by Pat O’Brien
- Detect AdBlock By Alobaidi
- And Ad Inserter.
Note! you don’t have to install all of them. Just pick one that suit you. To install the plugin you can simply find them on your WP Admin left menus and then go to Plugins > Add New. But before doing that please read my short reviews and how to use it first. So you can decide which one best for you.
These plugins have the same purposes and both plugins you can modify the message. But how they work have difference in their action. Here are the differences and how to modify the message that suit your style;
Ad Blocking Advisor
This plugin is great choice if you want to “casually” notify your visitor with “red” banner on top of your page when this plugin detect Adblock. The banner will tell to visitor that “Ads are one of the reason you can keep provide them with good content blah blah blah.”
By default Ad Blocking Advisor already have great “consent” message. But if you want to customise the message you always can go to the plugin setting page. On the plugin setting page you can also choose to put Close (X) button on it or not. However the banner will automatically closed after a few seconds.
Different with ad Blocking Advisor, Detect Adblock plugin will boldly cover your entire site with the custom page. Tell that Adblock detected! when there was a visitor that using Adblock software on their Browser/Devices visiting your site.
Yeah! it may looks harsh but this plugin is your best choice when you have the other casual Adblock advisor plugins and your visitor seems don’t get “understand.”
However, you can modify the plugin message with more friendly. Here’s how to do it and I will give you the example that i found it work for me 🙂
On your WP Admin panel menu, go to Settings and hover your mouse pointer on it. Then select Detect Adblock.
By it’s default Detect Adblock will say; “Please disable AdBlock in the browser and %_click here_% to visit my website.”
Below is the example of message (my message) to make your site visitor add your site to their Adblock White List;
Hey there! seems like you are using Adblock.
Ads are how we can keep providing you with premium content. So! if you find our content is useful Please disable AdBlock or simply by adding us to your Adblock Whitelist in the browser and then %_click here_% to return to my website. Don’t worry! we have no intrusive ads. Thanks for your support and understanding 🙂
So you can modify the entire text and just leave the (%_click here_%) between your message. Important! Make sure the (%_click here_%) text remain there, because this is the link to the page that your visitor want to read for.
Use Ad Inserter plugin
The most efficient ways is by using Ad inserter plugin. As it is a great tool for placing Adsense ad on your blog. Ad Inserter also have Ad Blocking Detection feature on it. You can found the settings in Ad Inserter plugins page.
To activate it, on your WP admin go to Setting > Ad Inserter.
- Inside Ad Inserter plugin page go to Settings by clicking the ‘Gear icon’ on the top right Ad Inserter plugin interface.
- Then click the Ad Blocking tab.
- Don’t forget to enable the setting by clicking on the ‘Power’ button on the top right of Ad Blocking Detection setting panel.
- Inside Ad blocking tab, in Action settings you can choose Popup Message. You also can modify the HTML message if you like too.
- If you want you can check Undismissible Message to prevent visitor who use Ad Blocker software closing the warning message.
