Content Filtering with AdBlock

31 Dec

The Adblock project has all it takes to be crowned the “Revenue Killer” on the web for the sole reason that it has the ability to filter elements at the source address. So everytime a page loads, Adblock intervenes and then disables the items that have been added to your filter.

Now, that should make the whole process of a page load slightly faster, and it relieves us of a LOT of ADs. And yes, if you decide to block out ‘certain elements’, then the big-G begins to lose money too, for a major revenue for the big-G comes now through it’s AdSense program. I decided to install this extension and give it a try. The filter that I added was /http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js/

The results are here:

I have uninstalled Adblock, for the Google Adsense has never been any botheration to me, but …
What NOW?

    I had an issue with Adblock – The flash files stopped showing up in webpages. Tried all possible stuff (even reinstall) but I just get a blank area there.

    Ads can be annoying, but the thing about google adsense is that you recieve the ads while enjoying a free service like blogger or gmail(which happens to be the best e-mail service in existence). Often Times ad-blockers can block material that you need. Isn’t it somwhat of a let down that we have to practicaly fight a war against Advertisers whenever we access the internet?
