Blocked ads - How long?

How long until a blocked ad no longer appears?

This might seem like an old question for some. After you designate an ad for blocking, how long does it take before the ad(s) no longer appear on your sites? Is it still a few days?

Thanks ember.

Does entering a specific URL to be blocked accomplish the same thing as checking BLOCK on an ad in the Ad Review area?

If you block by URL, it takes about 15 minutes.

This is a follow-up question to this topic.

There used to be a lot of discussion on whether to block both the www and the non-www versions of a URL, essentially inserting two versions. Anyone have comments on what should be blocked here in 2015?

You don't block it, you redirect one to the other. Up to you which one you want to use. For me, on a new site, I always go non-www to keep it shorter. For an existing site, I use whichever is indexed better in Google.

Thanks netmeg. I'm slowly catching up to the future, er, I mean the present.

i think what farmboy was asking is which version to use to block an AD appearing, not which to use for his domain

(although i may be wrong)

basically farmboy, blocking the non-www URL of an AD seems to work fine for all instances

And blocks all the subdomains, not just www.
