Adblockers are software programs that are designed to block or filter out advertisements on the internet.
Adblockers such as AdBlock, Adblock Plus, uBlock Origin work by identifying and blocking the code that displays ads on web pages,
Adblockers are often used by people who find online ads annoying or who want to block potentially harmful or unwanted ads, such as those that contain malware or trackers.
Adblockers are a problem for publishers who monetize their sites with display ads.
If publishers want to recover part of that revenue, we can use Google Adsense Ad Blocking Recovery Tool.
I used it for a week and then I discontinued using it after some time.
These are some things you keep in mind before using Google Adsense Ad Blocking Recovery Tool.

The Ad Blocking Recovery Tool
When it comes to the way the Ad Blocking Recovery Tool works, I have nothing negative to say.
The tool works nicely because it will whitelist your site with just one click.
There are other tools that display warning but they don’t do anything to simplify the whitelisting process.
Speed, Speed, and Speed
If you care about speed as I do, keep in mind that these will add at least two requests.
It is not like these requests will be detrimental to your site speed but you want to keep things as lightweight as possible, you want fewer requests, not more.
At this point in time, there is no option within Google Adsense Ad Blocking Recovery Tool to show its message after 3, 4, or 5 seconds.
Run some tests on GTMetrix before and after its implementation to be aware of the impact this tool has on your site speed
If you know you are making 40% more from using this tool. I would be like “f*ck site speed” and keep the tool activated 24/7.
I ran a test and I found out that only 8% of my visitors are using adblockers and less than 4% were willing to deactivate their adblockers using Google Adsense Ad Blocking Recovery Tool.
If I were making $1000 a month, this implementation would get me $50 more in Adsense revenue.
Is it worth using the tool to recover 5% of lost revenue?
You can run your own tests and see if it is something you wanna do.
At least now, I have a better idea of the amount of money I might be losing due to people using Ad Blockers.
I might activate the tool during the best months of the year in terms of ad revenue.
You should also consider not spamming the crap out of your visitors so they feel that seeing a few ads on your site wasn’t that bad after all.
