Allow a Site URL in AdBlocker Extensions on Web Browser

Do you need to allow a website URL on an Adblocker? Learn how to allow ads on the website and disable blocked by adblocker messages.

Big brands and news sites sometimes prevent us from reading or accessing content when ad blocker extensions are enabled. In such cases, we need to whitelist the site address to allow advertisements.

Each ad-blocking extension has different options and customization to bypass the ad restriction, which we can configure for individual sites or pages.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to allow sites to display ads for different ad blocker extensions. You can directly skip to the extension for setup.

Whitelist a Site in Ad Blocking Extension

The tutorial will focus on whitelisting a site from some of the most popular ad blockers, including uBlock Origin, AdBlock Plus, AdBlock, AdBlocker Ultimate, and Ghostery.

Furthermore, we will be sharing two different methods for the same. The first is a shorter approach and could be carried out with a single click.

However, if you wish to add multiple sites at once or make further changes to these settings, the second method within each adblocker extension section shall help you.

Here are the steps to allow ads on a site when using uBlock Origin:

Bottom Line

All the sites that offer unrestricted or free to read content usually display ads to monetize and run the business. Instead, it would be best to consider blocking only intrusive and pop-up ads that ruin the browsing experience.
