why advertise online – Online advertising is the economists which known as the economic powerhouse of the Internet. But we can see that advertising as a curse: no ads, we do not have a free product or a free newsletter to read daily.

According to a recent survey by Adobe and PageFair, has about 198 million users worldwide use ad blocker 6/2015. This number increased by more than 40% in just one year.


In Germany, it was happening the fierce debate about the companies and ad-blocking programs. The focus is the debate between Springer publishers and advertising companies to block Eyeo GmbH (making software Adblock Plus add-on). After repeatedly dragged to court software failed, Springer lock their site if the user has to use a program to block ads. This story takes place in mid-May 2015.

However, online advertisers have used the tools to record Web surfing behavior of users to be able to display advertising in accordance with each person needs on a site series. Consequently, block tracking mechanisms surfing behavior often lead to situations well blocked by advertising. Foster and ABP also have the same weaknesses that are the installation of Ghostery, a pop-up window, called “Remain free Ghostery Help” (help Ghostery is a free tool).
