    Hi,

    My competitor has a bad blog with 5 pages of content (yet it ranks for a competitive keyword) On top of that he is using exitsplash so you can't go back to the google search results, instead you are redirected via a tinyurl link to the affiliate sales page.

    Those of you who have had experience with an exit popup that redirects to the aff offer, what has been your take on it? Is it worth it?

    I worry that google will detect it and send me down the rankings If I gave it a go.

    It's a shit thing in my opinion. I WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING IF THERE ARE SUCH SCRIPTS IN A PAGE. I get mad when my clients ask me to do this!! I think you should better make an eye candy landing page than preventing the users from leaving the page.

    I know there are many members here who are gonna punch me for this post, but I dare saying this...

    I agree, it's a shit thing.

    But I'm not sure if it's relevant to consider what you and I think about it, whether we will buy something from a page that has the script installed or not..

    Question is if the people viewing the site ever understands whats actually going on? It's obvious to us what's going on, but is it obvious for the rest?

    I don't know...
