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 two 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. Like I mention above that there is some of plugins but here I only recommended these two plugins that I’ve use my self. And it proven works great!
The two plugins that I’ve use is Ad Blocking Advisor by Pat O’Brien and the other one is called Detect AdBlock By Alobaidi.
Note! you don’t have to install both of them. Just pick one that suit you. To install the plugin you can simply find them on your WP Admin Panel menus and go to Plugins > Add New. But before that please read my short reviews and how to use first. So you can decide which one best for you.
These two 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.
