Mobile Ad-Blocking

AdBlock Browser and iOS 9 Will Change the Face of Mobile Advertising—But Probably Not as Much as You Think

Okay class, show of hands—how many of you have ever used a content- or advertisement-blocking browser extension like AdBlock Plus? It’s okay, I won’t tell anyone. Now, if this was a real classroom and not a clever visual storytelling tool to open this blog with, then chances are, quite a few of you would have raised your hands, even if your work  involves SEO and you understand that there could be an intrinsic link between blocked ads and low conversions. And now that ad-blocking is pushing into mobile platforms—which have just surpassed desktop as the primary means of surfing the web—you’re probably sweating bullets wondering if your PPC or digital marketing campaigns will be safe.
