I'm talking about the exit popups that prompt you if you're sure you want to leave, are one those allowed in most traffic exchanges or banned? I don't use them myself, just wondering what the general consensus is?

I find that many lists will allow one, and one only.  I don't mind them so much, as I know it's all part of the game.  What I don't like is lists like GOT Safelist who puts their own exit pop into every single ad.  Even if the advertiser doesn't have one, GOT puts one in anyway.  So not only do I have to click an icon to validate, I also have to click an exit pop.

I'm with you. I don't like pop-ups at all.  I would love to go directly to the site I am expecting to see.  I do understand that the admin an advertisers want to maximize their ROI.

Thanks... I didn't know GOT Safelist did that :o

Yes i think one popup is ok if you can click away with just one click.

 

I have seen popups that take several clicks to remove. :wub:

I don't really pay that much attention to pop ups, especially the ones on Got safelist. I wasn't really aware that the pop ups I saw there were from admin. But, that explains a few things.

Exit pop-ups are a mark of desperation - if you can't sell your product/service with your main sales page, either it's a product/service that nobody wants or it's a badly-designed sales page. Ads where the landing page has exit pop-ups are banned on all my TAE sites.

Funny though I do not feel desperate.

Then again I do not use them all the time...

It depends if the pop offer compliments first ad.

I think in the early days of exit pops that may have been true, and likely still true for a small percentage of marketers.  These days they exist because it's "the thing to do", a bit of a fad in my opinion. Everybody is doing them, and so many experienced marketers are preaching them that the newcomers trust that it's a good idea.  Exit pops are also a near-necessity to lead people into upsells.

 

That being said, I probably will never use them.  If I do, there'd have to be an awfully good reason (and not because the product isn't good ;) )

I believe they can be effective, probably not as much as they once were, but I think they can be used as like an "OTO" to get someone's attention and create urgency..

 

As far as Traffic Exchanges.. most I don't think allow them, or will allow one.

 

On my sites I have them not allowed according to my terms, however I generally will approve them, and only remove them if there is a complaint.. but I mean at my most popular traffic exchange there are generally 3,000-4,000 ads in the system and about 5,000 unique surfers so when someone has an ad that has an exit pop-up, as long as it doesn't happen all the time, it won't reach most people frequently enough to even be an issue - so I let a lot of that stuff slide.

I absolutely cannot stand the exit popup. I do remember them when I see them while surfing and make a note to NOT join that program or get the product. And if a TE I surf has too many of them - I consider 5% of the pages surfed excessive - I no longer use that site.

I would have to agree. I mean I saw your ad and now you want to disrupt my surf to have to click your cancel button? It is just as annoying as framebreakers, dead sites, or error pages to me. A traffic site with too many "bad" extras is one I will avoid. If the owner doesn't care about my surfing experience on their site, i will look elsewhere.

I don't like them, but I think the terms for my sites allow a maximum of one. However I was thinking of changing this to not allowing them at all.

Popups sometimes are really perturbing, especialy those that have sounds or music. :(

Popups do serve a purpose when used correctly but have no place in a traffic exchange.

 

I surf to earn credits so I may show my site(s) and will only stop if something catches my attention

(or frame breakers, whose frequency seems to be increasing of late).  If I didn't stop, I wasn't

interested, and throwing up a popup only wastes both of our time because the likelihood of that

popup's success is extremely low.

Pop up only for confirmation leaving a site is annoying. I dont mind if it give some info but mostly are not.

Pop-ups where you have to click several times to get ride of them should be banned in TE`s. Just my opinion...
