I just saw a post linking to a popular news website, in the feeds of Facebook, I clicked on it and got redirected to their website. It took a long time to get loaded, because it was the first time I visited that site. Later a warning message was shown that asked me to disable the add blocker, in-order to continue for reading the article in that website…![image 1]
After experiencing this I just decided to look at the scripts that were blocked, a small research on all those domains reviled that most of them were used for advertizing. [image 2]
“So the website wants to earn free money from our clicks, the publisher of adds throws some random add in the form of image, text or video, and demands a visitor to download it. If questioned (by blocking), then the website won’t respond at all. Isn’t it a digital ransom …?”
Well generation of revenue by showing some adds is not bad, but exploiting visitors for this is messy…!
What I found was a simple browser plug-in will help effectively in encountering this issue. A right plug-in that can monitor unnecessary script on the web page and prevents it from downloading, it not just saves your bandwidth but also reduces the page load time. More over right information will be prevented from reaching the wrong hand...!
