Tired of losing money? Get Cookie Checker now

Early December, it was announced that French publishers and advertisers plan to file a lawsuit against Eyeo, which owns AdBlock Plus. They believe the extension constitutes an economic threat. It should be noted that German publishers provided the same arguments in 2013.

Below we describe the threats of the AdBlock extension for admitad publishers and provide a complete solution to the money loss issue.

Imagine a typical situation when an advanced user installs the AdBlock browser extension to block unwanted advertising on visited websites.

The enabled AdBlock extension blocks the downloading of the pixels that track target activities on advertisers’ web sites. Depending on browser settings and user extensions, the publisher’s sales may not be counted, because pixels simply might not work.

We’ve found a solution to this problem—http://checker.admitad.com/en. You may try out the checker right on the web site to see how it works.

When users land on a page with AdBlock enabled and the cookie checker script installed, they will see the following pop-up window.

2015.01.16-12.53.02

When users click on “Set up AdBlock” or “Add our website to a white list,” the following tab opens:

2015.01.16-13.10.35

All the user has to do is to click the Add button. Afterwards, the settings will look as follows.

2015.01.16-13.11.05

After this, users will see admitad advertising even with AdBlock enabled, so more target actions will be counted. Otherwise, the tracking of such target actions might be blocked because of AdBlock.

 

Installing checker.admitad.com script

Press the Install button to open the wizard dialog.

2015.01.15-15.50.40

Select the warning type

  1. Cannot be closed: a visitor of your web site with AdBlock enabled will see an informative pop-up prompting him or her to disable AdBlock or create an exception for domains. This window WILL NOT close until the user performs the recommended actions. The user will only be able to continue using your website after this.

To enable the checker, do the following:

  • Download a JS-file called cookie_check.min.js and place it in the folder where your index.html file (or whatever file you are enabling the Cookie Checker for) is stored.
  • Place the JS file and add the script before the closing body tag:

<script type=»text/javascript»>

CookieChecker.run();

</script>

  1. May be closed: a visitor of your web site with AdBlock enabled will see an informative pop-up prompting him or her to disable AdBlock or create an exception for domains. The pop-up may be closed, and the user may continue using the website.

To enable the checker, do the following:

  • Download a JS-file called cookie_check.min.js and place it in the folder where your index.html file (or whatever file you are enabling the Cookie Checker for) is stored.
  • Place the JS file and add the script before the closing body tag:

<script type=»text/javascript»>

CookieChecker.setOptions({

allowClose: true

});

CookieChecker.run();

</script>

  1. Set up is an option for experienced publishers. You get a JS file with an option to set up the informative pop-up display and may use your own design.
