    StyleFeeder forced click?
    This afternoon I searched for "j crew classic dress belt". The 4th or 5th organic result was for StyleFeeder.com. Upon clicking, they immediately open a pop-up showing an image of the belt and asking "Is this what you were looking for?" If you click "Yes," a new window opens up with the J. Crew product page.

    What do you think about this practice? No "buy now", "go to store", "learn more" or anything... just a simple "Yes." Seems slightly shady, although I've got admire the innovation.

    Also surprising they rank so highly given google's aversion to both pop-ups and affiliates.

    Just to quick comment.. Sites like this that have these kinds of yes / no popups when you first visit.. I think of immediately as spam and something wrong. So this affiliate might make the sale once to me but as long as I remember their name I would never click on their link again if this was my first experience.
