    Hey,

    I found a simple solution to monetize all of your traffic - doesn't matter if your users have Adblock enabled or not. Little HTML/JavaScript/CSS knowledge is needed.

    Lets look at this example:


    • You have some cpc/cpm banner ads on your website (Adsense etc.)
    • Users without adblock will see the banners, users with adblock won't.
    • We want to monetize adblock users too.

    Solution


    • Put this simple Javascript into your pages: Google for "fuckadblock github" (I can't post links yet). This script checks if the current user has an adblocker enabled or not.
    • Go and get into some affiliate program like Amazon for example. Download a banner in the same size of your cpc/cpm ads as an image and put it on your webspace.
    • Put this image combined with your affiliate link below the usual tag of your cpc/cpm ad. Set its style to "display: none" and give it an ID (e.g. id="adblockAd").
    • Put this code into your pages:
      HTML:
      
      // Function called if AdBlock is detected
      function adBlockDetected() {
          document.getElementById("adblockAd").style.display = "block";
      }
      
      // Recommended audit because AdBlock lock the file 'fuckadblock.js' 
      // If the file is not called, the variable does not exist 'fuckAdBlock'
      // This means that AdBlock is present
      if(typeof fuckAdBlock === 'undefined') {
          adBlockDetected();
      } else {
          fuckAdBlock.onDetected(adBlockDetected);
          fuckAdBlock.onNotDetected(adBlockNotDetected);
          // and|or
          fuckAdBlock.on(true, adBlockDetected);
          fuckAdBlock.on(false, adBlockNotDetected);
          // and|or
          fuckAdBlock.on(true, adBlockDetected).onNotDetected(adBlockNotDetected);
      }
      
      // Change the options
      fuckAdBlock.setOptions('checkOnLoad', false);
      // and|or
      fuckAdBlock.setOptions({
          checkOnLoad: false,
          resetOnEnd: false });
    • Be aware that "fuckadblock.js" has to be included previous to the code above.
    • If the user now has an Adblocker enabled he will see your affiliate banner instead and you can monetize 100% of your traffic.

    What do you think?

    Have fun

    Nobody interested into this? How do you monetize your adblock users if I may ask?

    Yes. Either they see an Adsense or an Amazon banner. There is anyone who doesn't see a banner.

    And we speak about 15-30% increase.

    Adsense won't work, you need to put a static image ad to "bypass" adblock.

    adblock users are much more self aware than your usual ad clicker visitor, even if they are presented with ads, they won't click on them, at least the wiser majority, you'd be better off just concentrating on how to get more visitors from the non-adblocker type
    besides single pics/frames can be easily added to the adblocking rules or is this code block adblock all together?
    you're just chasing a loss of income which never were or never meant to be imho

    and telling the truth, i prefer my internet ad free, it's a whole other world, adblock ftw lol

    but i have good news for ya, i was given a tablet by my mobile internet provider which runs android kitkat, if the device is non-rooted, adblock won't work, needless to say mobile is getting bigger and bigger, i didn't even turn on my notebook since i have the tablet, my point is: if more and more people use mobile devices exclusively to access the internet and those run kitkat or newer OSes, adblock won't be natively supported anymore (thanks Google), so this might compensate you in the long run

    That's what I'm talking about. I put a static image (banner, from Amazon) into my page and if the user has adblock enabled the script displays it.

    It's true what you are talking about but my stats don't lie! 15-20% increase of ad revenues!

    This is exactly the code I have been looking for and now it's here.

    Do you just add the Amazon homepage banner or do you further target it to reach your demographic?

    You can do it as you want. In my example (entertainment site) I show them amazon banners (gifs) related to entertainment stuff.

    Good ideas above. I was thinking psycho warfare. If users is using ADBLOCK Throw in an image of DMCA lawsuit for "Modification of private property" Website owned by SomeCompany LLC Copyright 2015. Atleast this will make some users stop using adblock.

    This can actually amount to a lawsuit because its modification of private property without owners approval. Or I play warfare - For example I write a plugin to target adblock users visiting my site and force them to clickjack my FB LIKE, redirect them to malware website and cause them serious damage for browsing my website with plugins that modify my website without my approval.
