What are ad blockers?


Ad blockers are browser extensions that prevent ads from being displayed when they visit your news site.

37% of people use ad blockers.

💡Best practices

  • Inform your audience
  • Ask directly
  • Consider AdBlock as part of your strategy

Explain how ad blockers affect you


50% of people who use ad blockers allow ads on at least one site. Being transparent about how ads support your journalism helps your audience understand why it’s important.

💡Best practices

  • Incorporate your mission, like, “Help shine a light on stories in the dark”
  • Explain how ads support you
  • Show repeat visitors how often they visit with an article counter, like “You’ve read 10 articles this month! Consider supporting us by unblocking ads.”

Ask for permission


54% of people who use ad blockers don't know what the term "allowlist" means.

An “allowlist” refers to the list of websites someone has approved. It's a technical term, which can be useful when talking to people with that expertise, like engineers, but can confuse or alienate your audience.

💡Best practices

  • Ask for permission, rather than describing the action, like, “Allow ads” or “Allow ads?”
  • Avoid jargon like “allowlisting” or “whitelisting”
  • Show your message multiple times

💡Best practices

  • Consider making your ask non-dismissable, which might reduce how many people use AdBlock, but might cause them to leave your site
