Ad Blocking Detector

Tired of missed opportunities because of pesky ad blocker browser extensions, add-ons, and plugins? Fight back with Ad Blocking Detector today!

Tired of missed opportunities and empty spaces because of pesky ad blocking browser extensions, add-ons, and plugins? Would you like to determine which of your site visitors use ad blockers and do something about it? Then this plugin is for you! Show an ad to those without ad blockers, and something else entirely to those with them. Don't settle for lost profit!

  • Fully compatible with WordPress multisite networks.
  • Detects all major ad blocking browser extensions, including Ad Block Plus.
  • Works with all major web browsers.
  • Integrates with some other popular ad management plugins, such as AdRotate.

How Does It Work?

This plugin allows you to specify two alternative sections of content. One for normal visitors, and the other for visitors using ad blockers, such as the popular Adblock Plus. This content is then tied to a WordPress shortcode.

Simply insert this shortcode anywhere shortcodes are supported, such as posts, pages, and the sidebar (with a simple tweak), and the plugin will display the appropriate content based on whether it detects an ad blocker or not.

See a working demonstration at the plugin's website.

What Can I Display To Ad Block Wielding Visitors?

Anything that ad blockers won't block. There is no way to turn off the visitor's ad blocker; however, you can use the knowledge that they have an ad blocker to your advantage. Display a signup form for your email newsletter. Pop in a description and link to your new eBook. Even display a plea for the user to disable their ad blockers if necessary.

There are other ways of engaging your site's visitors, when you can't display an ad, take advantage of those other methods.
