I have downloaded the plugin but do not see settings for AdBlock X

What if I own multiple websites?

Once you are registered with the reporting portal, you can re-use your login credentials for additional websites. We will track data separately for each website, and you should see each website listed under your account.

How do I configure my own message to the visitors with ad blockers?

Login into the portal, and you should see an “Edit rules” button on the right column for each of your sites. Click on the button for the site you want to customize and follow the directions from there. You can preview how the messages look on your site before you activate them.

Reviews

Doesn’t work, developer didn’t consider all email TLD’s

Did not work one bit, the registration didn’t work with our email (ends in *.email), I don’t know how a developer didn’t add all TLD’s to it. So we made a temporary Gmail, which also didn’t register my site to the portal at all as it showed us as having nothing attached to the account. Don’t have time to waste on an Ad blocker that doesn’t work with our email system TLD, nor one that doesn’t even recognize our newly recognized server.

ABX Provides Valuable User Data

ABX is a great tool. It has provided us with valuable insight into the number of ad blocker users coming to our sites. We’ve been impressed with the ability to easily review specific segments of users by parameters such as device type, time of day and geo. It has helped us better understand our user base and allowed us to optimize our traffic acquisition strategies.
