    Hello
    I am wondering about those pop-up chat things. when you go to a site, sometimes the whole site gets locked and you get a pop up saying "would you like to chat with us?" and you have to click "no" and then the site becomes available again.
    I am wondering if these affect seo? can the search engines detect them, and do they affect rankings?

    They did affect rankings, if there is no option to close, otherwise it won't affect much.
