    I am asking if anyone can help me with this, I am trying to work my way around the ads blockers and think I have found a way around it. It's a nightmare though and getting different results.

    If possible anyone that understands it can you tell me what you see on this page
    https://www.sbat.com/tips/todays-free-horse-racing-tips

    And if the links are clickable and go to the desired location.

    I am getting different results with it on different areas.

    Anyone that uses ads blockers this would be appreciated. My major issue is with ABP though.

    Has anyone else found ways around this yet?

    A quick solution is not to allow any aff links to open in a new browser tab/page.

    Yes I discovered that Daftdog cheers, my worry is that doesn't help the bounce rate and also reduces the monetization on the site.

    I open all my aff links to a new page and my bounce rate is still pretty low and conversions the same as before.

    Activated ABP Adblocker and all the banners on your page have disappeared. I clicked on the "Bet of the day" link and the bet365 banner is showing but when clicked returns you back to the same page.

    Cheers Daft dog, not so worried about the banners to be honest have we have discovered the conversion rate is poor with them, the text links/buttons are what really bothers me. Yes the returning to page is a result of opening a new window which is very annoying. Thanks for looking it does help. I haen't yet touched my bet of the day page trkying to figure a way around it here first.

    No offence mate but I totally missed those buttons as to me they don't really look like buttons, maybe a bit too long. I clicked on them, the page reloads back to the same page.

    No offence taken criticism is always welcomed, not a fan of the desktop view at all myself, we are working on a few visual changes but it's designed more for mobile than desktop. Again thanks very much for the feedback it all helps

    I open all my links on the same page, if people don't like it they click back if they do then sign up occurs job done, if you have a lot of mobile users then you should not see much of a difference and experienced desktop users usually right click and select open in new window anyhow, web browsing habits have changed the last few years.

    I set all aff links to open same page and was prepared to test it on my main UK site for a month whatever happened. It's fine, feels like conversions are the same as before so I am not going back to 'open new window'. In an ideal world I would obviously default to 'open new window', but these adblockers are a real threat to your traffic. As others have stated, people will use the back button - at least everyone knows how to do that.

    Agreed about the buttons not standing out.. I would try maybe a different / unique font for the buttons, as right now they kinda just blend with the rest of the content.


    I have always opened aff links in the same page.. Once they click away, I feel its the casinos job after that.. That is the point after all, to send them off to play :)

    I get this with chrome v49.0.2
    Firefox 45.0.2 works

    This site can’t provide a secure connection
    www.sbat.com uses an unsupported protocol.

    Details:
    The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite. This is likely to be caused when the server needs RC4, which is no longer considered secure.

    Speed is also very slow that I have found. Is it because of antivirus?
