Why I won’t disable my ad-block to read news.
If a news website tells me to remove ad-blocker to read their content, I would simply choose not to read it.
Because I can find similar/same content on a different website. Unless the content is unique: stuff like WIRED.
But if you are @indiatimes or even CNN, I would simply go elsewhere to read the same content. So basically you have to make your content unique for me to disable ad-block and refresh the page and spend time reading it. Otherwise you’re losing readership and getting less views on your ads. So it’s counter-productive for news sites to ask me to disable ad-block.
So don’t ask me, because I will just close that tab.
