    Hi,
    I have noticed that after using popunder on my site,my traffic has decreased while my content and my links are being shared as same as always.
    So does the browsers send warning to users no to open the site or something like that?

    I won't use them as they are annoying for those without blockers. For those with blockers and slower connection it can even crash the browser and make pages slow to load. Bounce rate increases.

    Sounds like you are using popups, I use popunders and I don't get any complaints.

    I also use popunder but only one. If you use too many your traffic will decrease.

    one thing i know is, google hates popunders, and will not advice you to use it either, it scares your user away, would you like visiting a website with a popunder or a site without popunder?

    am not saying you cant top google, but trust me when google finds a competition on your niche thats has alot of load speed than yours i.e not using popunders , then maybe you will understand what i meant with my first comment, i used popunder on my blog and i received a manual action from GWT, saying sneaky mobile redirect, google stopped indexing my site and i was forced to remove all my popunder ads, so take time and study what popunder does before you can say its not affecting you in anyway

    Just use another popunder network. That's why I'm choosy when it comes to popunders. My site is up for 2 years now with popunder but got no problem. Rank 1st on first page :D

    Many sauces are talking about that such kind of add is poor traffic and has bad effect on your site.

    Done right, popunders are cool!

    I am currently using them and looking through the GA stats, the users are loving the popunder page (it's mine as well).

    However, if you don't write your scripts correctly, you're into the penalty area - some browsers, especially on mobile, would display a popup if you make a mistake. So yeah, be careful and hire a good dev.

    That I know, I thought that op means something different.

    But I'd say that not only popunders can affect quality of visits, everything that gets in the way, including misleading click bait titles.
