Ad blocked counter is constantly increased

When I access to some sites, I can see the blocked ads counter constantly increases. This is an example:

What does it mean? Is the Ad Blocker blocking other content out of ads?

Thank you

    Hi Hans,

    If the counter keeps incrementing, it most likely means that a site keeps trying to download an ad that AdBlock keeps blocking. This is almost always the result of bad programming on the part of the website.

    Thank you Rhana! Could that means that the ad (in this case I guess video adserver) is calling several times because it's been blocked? Or something to so with programmatic adserving?

    Hi Hanchu,

    Yes, that's exactly right! Some sites just won't give up trying.
