This week on CodePen Radio, we talk advertising. Both sides: using advertising as part of a business model as well as using advertising to grow.

    So what do you do with ad blockers? I’m guessing that programmers are the mostly likely of all to have one running. Of course if you are serving from your own site then they can’t really block you I guess.

      I think they can still block us and I’m sure they do. I don’t use them so I’m not really sure, but I think it’s kinda crowdsourced in a way. Users report what they see as ads (perhaps it’s based on the DOM, classes and ID’s and stuff) and other users have that stuff automatically blocked.

      We’re not going to get into the business of fighting that. If you want to customize what you see and what happens in your browser, that’s your business. Hopefully we can can influence better practices for advertising over time.
