99 TO GO

Filed at 7:22 am under by dcobranchi

Kim at Relaxed Homeschooling waxes politic this morning. It’s pretty funny. Oh, she harbors a not-so-secret fantasy of recording 100 hits in a day. Help her out, ok?

And when I’m on the PC, I use Firefox with AdBlocker, so it doesn’t even get served up — and if you’re undercounting me, you’re missing a lot! (You do get me when I’m on the Mac, though, as at this moment.)

I don’t know. I guess it would depend how Mozilla works. Does the blocking occur as the data are received at your end or is the html request itself blocked? Where’s a geek when you need one?

There are two options, “hide” and “remove”. Hide allows the ad content to be downloaded but simply displays white space where the ad should be. Remove, which is what I have it set for, keeps the content from downloading and renders the page without spaces. As far as I can tell, this should mean no hit on the BlogAds server. Chris?

I keep almost everything blocked under Internet for security. I added your site to Trusted Sites yesterday, and noticed that I now get the Blogads. I don’t know if I was undercounted or not. If so, like Tim said, you missed a lot. 😉

Ad blockers usually work by keeping a list of known ad servers and telling the browser the the IP address for those servers is 127.0.0.1 – which is always your local machine. Firefox will look for the ad locally – and obviously not find it. The ad is never requested from the real server.That sounds like remove.

Since hide is rendering white space, I think it must be fetching the ad in order to know what size it is to render the page properly.
