Getting around adblock.can you obfuscate the javascript?

Typical adsense on my site...which adblock erases.

Open up adblock and it says the cause is a domain match for pagead2.googlesyndication.com.

Can you evade this just by using javascript to split things up?

var jsurl = "pagead2.g" + "ooglesyndication.com";

That easy? Would it violate google's terms of service?

Does google offer aliases or local delivery of these scripts of even proxies to get around adblock?

Are there adsense alternatives out there that get around adblock? The trick seems easy enough...have a delivery domain not flagged by adblock or the ability to front scripts on your domain.

Surprised google doesn't take this more seriously. If everybody used adblock...google would be dead. If I was the lead engineer I would dump pagead2.googlesyndication.com the domain and move everything onto google.com with personalized/randomized scripts names for each adsense client (that would be a pain to block).

Would it work? "pagead2.googlesyndication.com" will land in DOM anyway and will get blocked.

I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve.

If you are trying to over-ride settings by your visitors then I would consider that foolish. Rule #1 - never antagonise your visitors.

Meh...

Would be fun to force show ads for those who choose to use an ad blocker trying to alter the intended presentation of the site.

Would be even more fun to able to not show the site completely with a message saying: "We spend a lot of precious time and hard earned money to bring you this site for free. If you want to view this site you must disable your ad blocker."

If you do that you may as well go with a paid subscription model and drop the hokey adsense ads.

Hi everyone,

On average, how many percent of your visitors do you think block your ads?

My second question is, does the adblocker also block Google analytics?

thank you.
