Today I would like to announce the release of ‘Anti-AdBlock’ WordPress Plugin, a plugin that can help you increase your blog advertisement revenue. Again, feel free to use the comments section for bug reports and feature requests/suggestions. Please refrain from debating the ethics of AdBlock software in the comments section so that people who are using this plugin can get timely support for it. Lastly if you have a creative custom message that you use to appeal to your loyal visitors, please share them in comments!
This plugin detects if a regular visitor to your blog (10 visits by default) has AdBlock software enabled. If so, it will display a floating notification message on the 11th visit to your visitor. You can set this message to humbly ask your loyal visitor to support your blog by turning off their AdBlock software, by making a small donation, or by writing about your blog (be creative!). By default, this message box will never show up again for that visitor.
It is based on the code on the post: How to Discourage Visitors from Using AdBlock.
- Customizable notification message. You can feel free change the text to say “please donate” or “please write about us” instead of “please disable AdBlock”. You can even Rick Roll your visitors who have AdBlock enabled!
- Ability to make the notification message closeable or not. I highly recommend that you keep it as closeable to not lose any visitors.
- Ability to NOT display message to visitor until X visits (default 10). First impression is everything. It’s not right to ask new visitors to turn off AdBlock until they really find your content useful (by coming back so many times).
- Ability to set the number of times your visitor gets nagged by the notification (default 1). I highly recommend that you nudge them only once. If you do it more than that, you might use the visitor permanently.
- Dynamic JS and ID generation so AdBlock cannot blanket block the Anti-AdBlock message.
- Upload the plugin to your plugins folder: ‘wp-content/plugins/’
- Activate the ‘Anti-AdBlock’ plugin from the Plugins admin panel.
- (optional) Go to the Options -> Anti-AdBlock admin panel to make any customizations.
- Test this out by turning AdBlock on and visiting your blog.
Make sure you visit the Anti-AdBlock plugin options page after upgrading and check if you need to click the “reactivate” button to get the latest new options.
