    PPC & Landing Pages with Pop-Ups
    I started to advertise a merchant's landing page direct-linking and Google indicated problems w/the landing page.

    I read tonight in an ebook that Google hates pop-ups. Anyone know if Google permits landing pages with pop-ups? Specifically, when the user hits the back button and an exit pop up appears.

    Customers also hate pop-ups. If they get one at your site - they'll never visit it again.

    Pop-Ups

    Don't use pop-up windows on your site.

    We do not approve destination URLs that generate pop-ups when users enter or leave your landing page.

    We consider a pop-up to be any window, regardless of content, that opens in addition to the original window.

    This includes pop-unders, timed or intermittent pop-ups, mock system warnings, and pages that automatically initiate a download.

    Ya - I hate them too (very much). The product/merchant seems to be converting well and it's a good lead payout - which is the only reason why I bothered but didn't know if there is standing adwords policy that would prevent ads being shown that have exit pop-ups. If so then that's something all clickbank merchants need to keep in mind or they'll lose affiliates - at least ppc ones.

    Thanks Rematt - I'll forward that policy to the merchant and see if they can make an edited version of the page - or I'll just make my own.

    In addition to the prohibition on the use of pop-ups on destination pages, Google also prohibits any interference with navigation; the user MUST be able to click the "back" button to return to the page where they saw your ad. An "exit pop" violates both rules.

    from http://adwords.google.com/support/bi...&subtopic=9280

    Back Button

    Your site must allow a browser's 'Back' button to work.

    Links to your website must allow users to enter and exit the landing page easily. Once reaching your site, a user must be able to return to the page where they found and clicked on your ad by clicking once on their Internet browser's 'Back' button.
