ad blocking not working?

ypn ad blocking

anyone else notice that the ad blocking feature doesn't seem to work? i've been trying to block some irrelevant ads on my site but the ads keep popping up. I've had the right urls in the block list for over a week now and it doesn't seem to be working. These are not the generic vonage and mortgage ads that show up when they haven't crawled your site yet. I can understand if you can't block those default ones. anyone else seeing this?

I had this problem once. Try removing all blocked urls (copy), saving, and then adding (paste)them back in and save again.

the ad blocking system is fubar right now... the latest url additions are not being recognized.

file a complaint with ypn support, but be sure and include screen grabs with your email.

thanks for the suggestion mvander. i cleared out everything, saved, and then put everything back in. i think it's working now. of course, who knows, maybe the algo just changed.

i guess i spoke too soon. all the blocked ads are back again. i guess ad blocking really is broken.

I talked with YPN and they confirmed that ad blocking is not working for some sites. It has really messed up my CTR and revenue for the last three days so I hope they can fix it soon.
