Ad blockers and Amazon ads on Hubpages

    I have tried two separate ad blockers with Firefox while viewing my HubPage articles, and I am wondering, how do the Amazon ads in the articles show up okay with ad blockers running.

    It is great for all of us to see the Amazon ads in the HP articles with ad blockers running, but I am curious how this works.

    My guess is politics or money. Somebody struck a deal...

    Ad blockers function when they identify advertising.

    How this is done can vary.  For instance, I have a browser with an ad blocker that refuses to display ANY HubPages hub that has any words like "ads" or "advertising" in the URL.  And sometimes it blocks forum threads that have those words in the URL too. 

    But not always.

    If the HubPages Amazon ads do not appear to ad blocking software as ads, they won't be blocked.
