Why you should not use the word "advertising" in your image names

by Meike Müller
Tipps & Tricks

As we have experienced ourselves, we strongly advise you not to upload images with filenames containing the abbreviation "advertisement" to your servers. The reason: Many AdBlockers block the download of these images. It took us a while to figure this out, after we always wondered why some images on our site that were tagged with "advertising" were not displayed. But again, only with a few customers. You grow from your mistakes and maybe we can advise you in this case and save you a tedious search. Do you need more information about e-commerce or do you need advice because you are facing problems? We at EXWE are here for you!

So what you should leave out

What does an AdBlocker actually do?

The AdBlocker is designed to detect annoying advertisements on websites and then hide them. It can happen that the AdBlocker hides the wrong images or texts just because "advertisement" is in the file name or text, like in the blog above.



Does an AdBlocker make sense for you?

An AdBlocker makes sense for you if you don't want to be cluttered with ads on every page, plus it's also more effective because ads or distracting content can keep you from doing your work.
