There's a tutorial one to the right, under that a compare prices, in the middle towards the top is a case study one, and at the bottom is a changing RealMedia one.

A simple filter like this will clean up much of that site:
Code:
*/ads/*

I have */ad/* */ads/* *.ad.* */ad.* etc.

I'm still getting a lot of ads from them.

Aside from the various incarnations of the substring 'ad', I also block variations of 'banner', doublclick (obviously), and atdmt.com... and see few ads.. I have to get the CSS-side of things working yet to get rid of the others, but the downloaded ones (SWF, images, etc) are pretty well cleared out..

I've got some rather active filters that work very well for me -- take another stab at it and then let me know if you'd like a peek at 'em (I'm not unwilling to share, I just want to try to push you (and others) to write your own filters and learn how this whole thing works instead of letting the cat out of the bag quickly... Besides, my filters work for me and may not for you, so it's best that you write your own filterset...)

Hope this helps...

PostPosted: Sat Apr 23, 2005    Post subject: text ads and php/asp Reply with quote

What you're seeing is text ads in a table. Sometimes the ad code is generated by javascript embedded in the page, and sometimes it is created server-side... server-sides happen when the web page is .php or .asp (or other server-side page generaters).

Currently, there isn't any way to block these. Adblock would need to provide an element-blocking mechanism to block the table, and a way to filter the page or element by id or other mechanism. Often, the tables aren't identified, so you'd almost have to do an element-level block by putting in a filter and moving up to the containing table, containing row, etc.

Doable, but tricky. This is something I've wanted to look into doing myself for a while.

Since most non-ad banners use the JPEG format and most ad banners don't, you can use the following RegExp:

Code:
/[\W_]banner(?!.*\.jpe?g)/


is there a better way to do this?

Edit: I fixed a minor error, oops.
