Taboola and Outbrain

Post by AlanPoe24 » Thu Nov 16, 2017 10:54 am

Hi,

The Taboola unit on Breitbart.com is abusing the acceptable ads guidelines. It's massive and is a 6x3 scrollable unit. How on earth is that allowed? Is it because they are paying you off?

This is easylist forum, nothing in common with adblock plus acceptable ads

Why are they only on FanBoy a list and not on the easylist?

Why are they not taken seriously when they are on basically every site?

Why can;t you do as good a job on them as you do Yavli and Uponit? Mind you Uponit doesn't get blocked either.

Taboola and Outbrain mix together ads and content (first party recommendations), the sponsored stuff are already removed by hiding filters in EasyList.

Code: Select all

@smed79 What aren't Uponit ads blocked? Can ABP filters not handle them?
