    For SEO : No.

    For user experience : Yes. which can lead to lower SEO results due to bounce rates going up and time on site going down.

    The question you should ask yourself is this : Is the increase in profit from the popunder worth the possible decrease in SE traffic?

    If it was my site, Id be saying a big NO to popunders. All they tend to do is just bother the potential customer.

    True, but if as a money making site, popunders are a big earner.

    Yeah I would have to agree with you on that one. I guess it really depends on how much your really making from the popunders.

    Test it to see if it's worth it. For SEO purposes I doubt you will see much of a problem. And popunders are less intrusive since they pop under instead of over. Popups on the other hand are very annoying.

    Would it be a popunder on click of something? Many popular big sites have it. I can't recall off the top of my head but I know one that I go to on occasion always has a netflix popunder on click.

    They work or people wouldn't use them. It just depends on the site and the offer.

    for those wondering its a 9k tube site (nsfw) where i use the popunder on the vids pages, but would love to also do it on the index as thats where the most traffic lands.
