Websites that prompt users to turn off their ad blocker, or block website content   

Adblock logo & wordmark

One of the trends I have noted over the last few years, is websites prompting the user to turn off their ad blocker, or in some cases blocking website content until the user accepts their adverts. I appreciate that webmasters like to make a bit of money on the side, who doesn't, but when I experience this I feel like coming off the site.

Some webmasters have also forgotten how too many online adverts ruin the performance of their websites, and there are other websites that have deliberately mislead users in to clicking on their adverts in the past, it's no wonder millions of users have ended up installing ad blockers.

You will find online adverts on My Computer tips, but one thing I never ask is for visitors to turn off their ad blocker or block content.

If a user does click an advert through my site, it's because they are genuinely interested in the product or service that is being advertised, no prompts required.
