    Does ad blocking software prevent impressions?

    If someone is using a plug-in that prevents ads from appearing, and they visit one of your hubs, do you still get paid for that impression? (To be clear, I refer to the Hubpages ad program, not AdSense since that pays by clicks)

    I think that the AdProgram works with your page views and that would still go up.

    An ad blocker plug-in just hides the ads from your browser, but doesn't make them go away. According to google (the ad company) the ad was still shown but the viewer just didn't see it. So I think that you would still be paid whether they saw the ad or not.

    Hope this helped.
