Day after day, websites get you used to an avalanche of ads that are part of the "scenery". Column on the right, column on the left, ads between paragraphs, in the middle of a video. It's impossible to escape it, and for some players it has become an annoyance they accept. In this article, we'll explain why blocking advertising on the internet, and what you get out of it on a daily basis!
Advertising on the internet: how does it work?
When you visit a website, you are often assaulted by ads, sometimes even without realizing it! There are the banner ads first: at the top of the page, in columns on the sides, in the middle of a content. But there are also advertising content that looks like the content of the page: sponsored articles, clickbait content, misleading buttons...
If you add video (Youtube, Twitch) and audio (Spotify, Deezer) ads, it's hours a week scrolling through a page, clicking "skip" or a cross to close a video, instead of reading or watching the content you're looking for.
