    Hi

    Only just found this forum - can't believe I've never been here before!!

    Some threads I've read so far have been a real revelation. Thanks. :)

    Anyway, I do have a question that I really hope someone can answer for me:

    From my experience it seem that Adversal is pretty good at supplying visitors, but does anyone know if their pop-unders would be counted as 'forced clicks' by merchants I promote through an affiliate link?

    I have contacted support but to summarize their reply is:

    "... our pop-unders do not display automatically but require a request to be made. They only launch when a visitor clicks a link."

    Not sure how that actually works in practice... but if the visitor is required to click a link, then is that acceptable?

    Does anyone have any ideas?? Are they 'forced clicks'?

    Thanks in advance and I look forward to being much more involved in this forum.

    :D

    If the user has to actually click on something for the popunder to appear then it should be fine.

    Thanks Niv

    Like I say I'm not sure how these actually work in practice (does anyone know a live site that uses Adversal?)... surely if the user has to click a link then it isn't really a popunder is it? It's a link.

    And why would you want to 'popunder' a user clicked link?

    Confused?? :confused:

    Since most users have popup blockers what they do is use javascript such that when a user clicks a link on your site the popup then occurs. It is not the link you clicked that displays in the popup or popunder but the advertisement they send to you. The page that is suppose to open based on the link you clicked will also open in parallel.

    So in short, this is to get around popup blockers.

    Hope that helps!

    Ahh! All of a sudden it becomes clear :)

    Without seeing any in action I just couldn't get my head round what was supposed to be happening!

    Thanks so much for your answer.

    Do any merchants have any comments on this?

    Would you consider these to be 'forced clicks' or would you find this an acceptable way to bring new visitors to your site?

    Thanks

    Why would you go a popunder instead of an over? Statistically you get better conversions with popups.

    For a popunder code - Does this help?

    HTML:
    2createawebsite.com/traffic/create-popunder.html
    To answer the other Q's:

    The pop-under is the standard used by a 3rd party to show across a number of sites. I've now been told the merchants concerned consider these to be 'forced clicks' though, so not to be used!
