John’s Rant: What to rant about?
Make sure you checkout the WPSupport store. where you can get direct access to some of the best plugins we have reviewed located all in one place. We do not host the plugins but provide the link to download it direct from WordPress.org or the plugin developer, and they may occasionally have an affiliate link but not too often since that adds a whole new layer of work to what I have to do.

This is a 3rd party service that will allow you to add an additional ad revenue stream to your website if that is your model. By becoming a member of their service you can ad this plugin to make the job of integrating the code from them necessary to display the pop-up/under ads that this network provides. It looks to be a ok ad network I can not say what the quality of the ads are so you might want to check them out before using.
if your looking to create a real-estate website and want to simplify things by using just a plugin with a standard theme
this may be a plugin for you. It looks to be a pretty extensive plugin with lots of options for setup of a real-estate website. It even looks to be offering the ability to runs a site that agents can list their properties on and you could charge a fee for that service.

If your looking for ways to convert visitors to your site who use ad-blockers this may be a service for you to incorporate into your site. With free version you get some default message to encourage visitors to turn off adblocker for your site but the paid version(s) depending on level you choose you can create custom message that are more targeted and help convert those visitors to your site to either turn off the ad blocker of pay for your content. All in all this looks like it could helps sites that depend on advertising. More is coming as I am interviewing Antoine about this service and will report further at that time.
