Advertising entities and tracking services can be quite sneaky and they are constantly changing their domains to try and elude Blockade. This is why we routinely update our Blocklist as well as allow you to Traverse Subdomains (see Blockade Server, Settings Help)

If you are seeing an ad within a website you are visiting, you may add that ad domain to your Custom Blocklist. There are several ways to discover what the ads domain is:

  1. Check out the Queries list or Relayed Queries list immediately after visiting the website with the offending ad. Add the domains that are suspicious to the Custom Blocklist.
  2. With your mouse, right click on the offending ad within the website and "copy the link address" or "copy the image address". Paste it into a new tab on your browser. Once you have identified the domain, add it to your Custom Blocklist.
  3. If using Google Chrome, with your mouse, right click on the offending ad within the website and "Inspect". Once you find the ad domain within the "Elements", add the domain to your Custom Blocklist.


Exception:

Sometimes an ad is not being served up by a third party service. Instead the ad is coming directly from the official website providers servers. In this case the ad is meant to be part of the website experience provided by the particular host you are trying to visit. If this is the case Blockade can not stop the ad. Your only recourse is to request from the official website host entity a cleaner, less obtrusive, ad free experience.
