Topics concerning Adblocks confuses me. I understand that most of these kind of sites stay alive coming from ad revenues. I tried to locate a topic explaining these in the dead Topics but can't find one.

I know of some sites forbidding the discussion of these blockers. Is winmatrix just TOO GOOD as a SAMARITAN to allow such or the owner is just rich?

I actually disabled my ad-blocker when I browse winmatrix but it seems, the mods/owner doesn't care anyway (since I read several discussions of these blockers).

In short, what is the stand of winmatrix against ad-blockers?

TY in advance for the future responses.

I think they'd like it if you disable AdBlock while on WinMatrix, but they're not going to kick you out if it's on.

I turn mine off, but unfortunately NoScript gets most of them.

WinMatrix's source of revenue is through ads only. In the last few months our server and other maintenance expenses have increased but income form ads has declined a lot whose one of the main reasons is the Adblock.

So if you are a regular user of WinMatrix and wants to see it alive forever, then disabling Adblock on this website would be really helpful.

I'm a little confused on how you make income from ads. Do we have to click for money to be made or the fact that I have Ad-Block disabled do it? :unsure:

a company pays google for advertizing, google pays webmasters to advertise on their sites, this is organized using google ads

google ads uses a system when a computer clicks (or views I'm not sure) an ad, the server checks the ip adress and sends revenue to the account holder, in this case Jatin would have an account on google ads, probably jatin@gmail.com or something similiar and he makes money from that.

That is the main method I know of using adverts,

In flash games I read that you dont need to click the ad in order to have money, just need to view it.

You don't need to click on the image ads but the Google text ads are required to be clicked.
