Completely agree Ajay. One site owner had 6 offer pages before you got to the home screen. Terrible. Popups before surf, during surf, I'm waiting for there to be OTOs before you can log off.

I wonder what percent of surfers use popup blockers and never even see most popups.

I use one and would guess that at least 90% do. If not, they should be. But it doesn't stop the exit popups.

Is there any way to stop those exit popups?

Exit popups that force you back to the site should also be banned I think.

While I agree that pop ups have a place when used correctly. I would beware of popups as a rule. I have noted that a few of them contain phishing or malware scripts in them. I haven't seen many in a while, but it is always good to keep your security software up to date. When I run into one nowadays, my security programs block them.

Nope they don't bother me at all, it's part of doing business with them. If a person don't like it they have a choice. Start their own business or just don't use the sites.

 

BTW, I did start my own business! :)

also those asking popups that generate those dialogs may be disgusting, some times that popup make more than 1 answer, I really hate that, they ask if you want to leave, and after that another popup asking if you are sure.. disgusting

I treat pop-ups as inevitable evil. In each field of activity there are problematic places. The miners, for example, do not have everything smooth with security.  :)
I think that this is an inconvenience that can be tolerated. Another question - the effectiveness of pop-ups. They irritate users. I think advertisers themselves should refuse to use them.

If you are going to use a popup, then I recommend that you don't use the kind that are prompts. I personally never agree to view those popups when asked. Instead use an overlay popup that has  an add to the site that you want people to visit. They work much better.

Pop-ups in TEs are really annoying.

The situation is made worse because some of them also act as framebreakers, so when you click 'leave' you're never sure whether it's going to grab you by the lapels and haul you right out of the TE!

If the popups are not aggressive then it's o.k as marketing use these as a modal for their CTA. The advertising is shrinking as the day goes by so every effort is made to keep the visitor on the site long enough to make a decision to buy or long enough to show you an ad in order to generate revenue.

 

What marketers should do is design their popup to be non intrusive - not to load to cover the content the visitor is obviously reading if could be like a flashing beacon in the top left hand corner that says "click here as soon as your are done viewing".

 

For traffic exchanges it's a distraction and would have to communicate exactly what the visitor is looking for otherwise it will become irrelevant and annoying.

I hate pop ups and usually don't deal with people who use them. I have run into a few that triggered my browser security. I know that ,in the past, popups were responsible for planting viruses and malware. I don't know for sure if the practice is still going on.

Whether Pop ups or Pop unders, both are not liked. But wait..........

If they generate a good income for me, I will not mind them.

 

One can earn a good income in Mingle Cash which uses pop under ads.
