If you guys have lotsa AdBlock traffic, this script can help you.

It will detect when somebody is using a website and redirect it to some url of your choice
Example:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/45938389/bhwadblockdemo.html
(clicking on this link will always say that you are using adblock just for the sake of the demostration)

Just edit the [Pointers] (you SHOULD remove the brackets) and put it where your ad code usually goes.

Code:
<div id="fab13">
[SIZE=3][B][Your usual ad code here][/B][/SIZE]
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function () {
if (jQuery("#fab13").height() < 10) {
    alert("[SIZE=3]A message before the user is redirected[/SIZE]");
    document.location = "[[B][URL="http://Site.that.the.adblock.user.will.be.redirected.com"]S[/URL]ite where the user will be redirected][/B]";
}
});
</script>
And then test it out, if it worked, then that's it! (duh), if not, then you need to use a slightly modified version of the script

Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<div id="fab13">
[SIZE=3][B][Your usual ad code here][/B][/SIZE]
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function () {
if (jQuery("#fab13").height() < 10) {
    alert("[SIZE=3]A message before the user is redirected[/SIZE]");
    document.location = "[Site where the user will be redirected[B]][/B]";
}
});
</script>

Here is the bottom line. I am an adblock user. Deny me access to the site, or redirect me, and I will look for a site that does not. This means you just lost a potential customer.

Something you need to consider.

Agree with that. Your content should be 100% and not to be found anywhere elsewhere to make me disable my ad-block in order to have access to your site.

Have to agree with JustUs. I used such a script and more than 95% of visitors just bounced off. Although those visitors used AdBlock, they might have eventually shared a page with their friends on social networks who in turn would not have AdBlock and would even furthermore increase the website audience.

Overall, not a good idea to use such a script, unless you are running "watch live sports" / "watch movies online" type of website.

Let me tell you what my ass tells me. There is a website called Ars Technica. Many here should be familiar with it. They tried adblock blockers to compel ad viewership. They lost 70 percent of their traffic over the 30 day period that they tried it, mine included. They stopped their experiment and the traffic came back. Most of the users share Ars Technica pages on many different websites, blogs, and forums. Is your 2 cents to 50 cents per add clicked worth that kind of loss of readership? If you want the readership and the possibility of sales, then blocking adblockers or readership is not worth it.

Another thing I despise, and personally blacklist the website, is the nags if I want to leave the website.

A person is visiting an website to gain information. Blocking them because they will not view ads is denying them that information. That information is your bread and butter. Another thing that you need to consider is that people tend to ignore ads and go to the information.

You are a fool to block anyone using adblockers. Hell the person might be an epileptic and your flashing ad just might cause a seizure. You do not know what your readers preferences or needs are, but you are willing to deny them based on your unthought out beliefs. You seem also to forget that behind the revelations of Snowden many people are turning to anything that they think will stop big data and the US government. While adblockers, as anything else, is useless against this, many people think that they provide privacy. If you do not evolve, you will go the way of the dinosaur.

So you think about whose ass you want to put what in, because it is your ass.

Is that really works ? since adblock has 20 million users, that would be a gold mine!

While I am against adblock, I must admit it may not be a good idea to deny content for adblock users, for most typical sites. These might have blogs/sites of their own and link to your content on them, or just share your content on social platforms.. which would in turn bring you more visitors, a large percentage of which will not have adblock on.

If the % of adblock users eventually grows to a large number, and you have a site that SOLELY relies on ads for revenue.. then yeah deny content to them. If these people want to access your FREE content and hosting (your money and time) and can't even bother seeing a couple ads in the corner of their eye then yeah screw them go back to wikipedia reading boring articles

Agree with your point.
Your content must be unique and great enough that the AdBlock users are willing to disable their ad block for your site.

Though we all think that adBlock is killing revenue, think also that adBlock users are still a minority in the Internet. It is OK if you have "crash-and-burn" website, but if you website is primarily geared for long term, losing your loyal readers for some pieces of dollars may not be profitable.

Face it, most of us here use adBlock also.
