Jerry, does the site receive revenue just for showing the ads, or do they have to be clicked to generate income.

I can click on loads if it's beneficial  ;)

Both visits and clicks. I appreciate the offer to click but it's against Googles T&C and their A.I. is very good at catching people out, which could cost me my account.

Interesting article on German courts ruling on ADBlock.  http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2016/12/german-judges-explain-why-adblock-plus-is-legal/

Now if only the Supreme Court over here could do the same.

UPDATE: Either we're having a freak month, or this recent approach to ad blocking has impacted ad revenue positively. Will see what the next few months report as. But so far, so good. This has allowed me to take more days off work each week, and use that time to work on the project. Instant, positive impact.

I guess I wasn't the only one who did not understand how important it was to turn off the ad blocker off.  :)
