Keyword vs Sites containing Keyword blocking?

Hi all, I've been trying to block some sites and was wondering what the difference is between this:

and this:

Also, does "Keyword Blocking" have to be enabled for the 2nd section to work?

Thanks,

BBB

Have you looked at the HELP?

Block Sites Help

If you want to limit access to certain sites on the Internet, you need to set up content filtering. There are two ways to filter content:

  • Blocking access to certain domains (for example, www.badstuff.com/XXX)
  • Blocking sites that contain certain words (like profanity or explicit sexual material).

When users try to access a blocked site, they will get a message: Blocked by NETGEAR.


 

To enable site blocking:

Select Per Schedule

    to turn on site blocking and block according to the settings on the Schedule screen.

Select Always

    to turn on site blocking to allow blocking all the time, independent of the settings on the Schedule screen.

Note: On the Schedule screen you can set when keyword and domain name blocking occurs.

To disable site blocking:

 

Select Never
    to turn off site blocking.

 

To Block Keywords or Internet Domains:

  1. Select when to turn on Keyword Blocking (Never, Per Schedule, or Always).
  2. In the

     

    Type Keyword Or Domain Name Here field, type the word or domain name you want to block.
  3. Click Add Keyword.
  4. The word or domain name will appear in the list.
  5. Continue adding names and keywords until you are finished.

Block List. The list under the heading Block Sites Containing these Keywords or Domain Names contains the current list of items to block.

 

To delete a keyword or domain name:

  1. Select the word or domain name in the list.
  2. Click Delete Keyword.
  3. Continue selecting and deleting names and keywords until you are finished.
  4. Click Apply.

To allow one computer to have unrestricted access to the Internet:

  1. Select the Allow Trusted IP Address to Visit Blocked Sites check box.
  2. Type the IP address of the computer in the Trusted IP Address area.
    You should need to type a number only in the last field.
  3. Click Apply.

This doesn't work on some sites when using Google incognito mode.  It is not related to https://
