    So i have a website where i have added a small popup in the inner pages, it appears 15 seconds after the user is on the page and shows the banner of same sites android app which links to playstore, so it is very relevant to the users. Popup closes after 20 seconds automatically.

    So my question is , if this is bad for SEO? My sites home page is ranking top 3 for quite big keywords, but i am not adding the popup on home page, just the inner pages...

    Suggestion needed from experienced members...

    thanks.

    Javascript is not read via search engines
    so should not effect your seo at all.

    no, many people use pop ups on websites and there is no issues SEO wise.

    Has the inner pages dropped in ranking since you have added the pop up to those pages ?

    No, it's fine to have pop ups. Yours closes within 5 seconds (not that that matters), but you're good to go.
