proxy configuration, zentyal 2.2

I am wondering what you guys would recommend for configuring my proxy. There will be about 50 users going thru the proxy for internet only, all other higher bandwidth local area traffic is running thru another router. I wish to use the proxy for denying access to specific URLs, and for blocking Ads only.. I have decided not to use the content filter in the proxy, I would like to use Traffic Shaping and L7 filter instead as it has provided better results so far at stopping streaming video and P2P traffic. Is this an appropriate way to accomplish my objective?
Also, with approx. 50 users using the net with Ad Blocking enabled, what would you recommend I set the cache size to? Its at 100MB right now. I've also tried 50MB and 250MB and wasn't able to notice a difference, but it was after hours and there were no users besides myself at that particular moment. Is there a standard rule of thumb for determining the most appropriate cache size?
