Messaging

Use the standard WordPress rich text editor to create a customized message that appears on the bottom of your site to your ad blocked users, asking them to make a choice. For example, you might use a message like this:

We use analytics on our website to improve our services. Learn more
As a thank you for letting us use analytics, we’ll give you access to our premium content.
Would you like to opt in to using analytics?

Buttons are automatically added to your message to allow users to opt in or opt out of your choice. The message is displayed until the user makes a choice, which is then recorded in a cookie after which the user no longer sees the message.

Protection

When used in conjunction with messaging, this prevents ad blocked users who have not opted in to your messaging from seeing all or parts of your site. Use of protection is optional. Without any protection, you would be relying on the so-called “nice guy” appeal.

User-Friendly Short Codes

WordPress shortcodes provide the building blocks so you can offer custom communications to your ad blocked audience. Target your blocked users only, or those blocking ads and analytics, using whatever WordPress content you place within the shortcodes. For example, [adtoniq_message_adblocked]Won’t you consider white-listing us?[/adtoniq_message_adblocked] would be displayed only to users with an ad blocker.

JavaScript API

Implement advanced adblock strategies in JavaScript by using our JavaScript API. You can hook into various events during ad block detection in order to do things like highly customized messaging, advanced content protection, and more. For example this code displays a message to your blocked users
using JavaScript: adtoniq.onBlocked(function(){alert(“Won’t you white list us?”);});

Accurate AdBlock Analytics

Accurately measure your adblock rate without interference from adblockers and then explore different strategies to regain your revenue. Once you install Adtoniq on your website, it records ad block analytics on every page view, except for those requests that come from robots that identify themselves as such, such as search engines like Google.

Google Analytics

Enter your Google Analytics property Id and optional traffic split (for larger sites) to collect ad block data into custom dimensions in your property. Download our Adtoniq Adblock
Best Practice reports from the Google Analytics Solution Gallery for a complete set of reports using our custom dimensions that will help you understand your adblocked audience and design and optimal strategy to monetize them.

With your users’ permission, bypass their adblocker to restore Google Analytics services. Since this takes the click of a button on your site as compared to reconfiguring your ad blocker (if that is even possible), this dramatically reduces the friction or reluctance users will have to opt in to restoring Google Analytics. The bottom line is that you’ll have greater information in Google Analytics, and unique insight into your ad blocked web.

Google AdSense

This feature will be coming soon in our next release and will allow you to restore Google AdSense services.

Automated Updating

It’s a war out there, and ad blockers are evolving every day. Sign up for Adtoniq Cloud to have your adblock detection code updated in realtime as adblock threats evolve.

4.0.9.13

  • New feature: By leaving the Accept/Confirm button text empty, you can create a message with no buttons asking users to disable their ad blocker.

4.0.9.14

  • Revert bug fix from 4.0.9.12: Turns out moving the ad block detection iFrame to the body causes issues on larger sites, because the ad block detection iFrame takes too long to load, so in this release we are moving it back to the head section. Since WordPress has no mechanism to insert content at the top of the head section, we are instead relying on a corner of the HTML specification which says that “invalid” content should be moved from the head section to the top of the body section. We now generate our iFrame in the head section, which will generate a W3C validation error, however it’s also the best way to resolve all these various competing issues. This works on all browsers because it is relying on part of the W3C standard, though it is technically invalid HTML.

4.0.9.15

Bug fix for Safari users using the AdSense feature: Turns out Safari does not support the “let” keyword in JavaScript, which is supported by all other browsers. This release changes “let” to “var” to resolve this problem.
