I was browsing my site yesterday from an undisclosed corporate location and I noticed something. No AdSense and no Analytics scripts were being loaded.
This is because the corporate proxies are blocking certain Google related sites. What does this mean? Well it means 2 things.
- I can't make money on my Google Ads for people browsing at work (corporate) through Google.
- I can't even tell if these people are visiting my site because the analytics scripts are also blocked.
So, I think I need to visit my server logs and estimate how often this is happening then possibly create a work-around either by downloading a copy of the script to my own server, or doing some type of server side caching of the data. I will update my blog when I find a solution.
