Example: How to online advertisement network provider's ad?

There are many online advertisement network provider such as Clicksor.com, Bidvertiser.com,Adtegrity.com and etc . Most of them use <script> tag to embeded their customer's advertisement to publisher's website. We can use ie7pro url blocker to block this type of advertisement.


Adtegrity.com advertisement code:
<!-- BEGIN STANDARD TAG - 728 x 90 - Sing365: Section: 4593 - DO NOT MODIFY --><SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="http://content.adtegrity.net/rmtag3.js"></SCRIPT><SCRIPT language="JavaScript">var rm_host = "http://ad.adtegrity.net";var
rm_section_id = 129;rmShowAd("728x90");</SCRIPT>

Url Block code: *adtegrity.net/rmtag3.js*


Be careful, if you ure *adtegrity.net*, that will cause you can not visit http://adtegrity.net also ; If you use rmtag3.js, that may be block rmtag3.js from any site.

Use image/div/frame block instead of url block

For url block only prevent content of url to display but not remove tags , url block may cause script erro or blank area. SO ,if you want to block an advertisement, first think about using image/div/frame block block
For example: <img src="http://images.stardock.com/store/GC2_468x60.gif" width="468" height="60" border="1" />
you can use url block rule *GC2_468x60.gif* with a 468*60 blank area left;or use image block rule *GC2_468x60.gif* with nothing left which looks like the ad never exists.
