    Hi All!

    Found out the Google hates pop-ups and pop-unders and the like and will penalize You for using them... So forget that idea.

    They are the reason people run pop up blockers. Time to find new ways to annoy people

    Google hates doggies too. They're trying to find a way to penalize sites that have pooch pics, with particularly harsh penalties for Yorkshire Terriers and Toy Poodles.

    TrustNo1, after somemore research I think that You're right... I think what set me on this course is this article at: http://www.google.com/corporate/nopopupads.html ... I must have misread it or something... I thought forsure I saw where Google would penalize You for using them... Sorry Everyone.

    Chocolate_Chicken,

    Sorry to hear Google is Anti-Doggie that's terrible.

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript">
    
    //specify page to pop-under
    var popunder="http://mydomain.com/nameofpopupfile.html"
    
    //specify popunder window features
    //set 1 to enable a particular feature, 0 to disable
    var 
    winfeatures="width=498,height=290,scrollbars=0,resizable=0,toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0,status=0,directories=0"
    
    //Pop-under only once per browser session? (0=no, 1=yes)
    //Specifying 0 will cause popunder to load every time page is loaded
    var once_per_session=1
    
    ///No editing beyond here required/////
    
    function get_cookie(Name) {
    var search = Name + "="
    var returnvalue = "";
    if (document.cookie.length > 0) {
    offset = document.cookie.indexOf(search)
    if (offset != -1) { // if cookie exists
    offset += search.length
    // set index of beginning of value
    end = document.cookie.indexOf(";", offset);
    // set index of end of cookie value
    if (end == -1)
    end = document.cookie.length;
    returnvalue=unescape(document.cookie.substring(offset, end))
    }
    }
    return returnvalue;
    }
    
    function loadornot(){
    if (get_cookie('popunder')==''){
    loadpopunder()
    document.cookie="popunder=yes"
    }
    }
    
    function loadpopunder(){
    win2=window.open(popunder,"",winfeatures)
    win2.blur()
    window.focus()
    }
    
    if (once_per_session==0)
    loadpopunder()
    else
    loadornot()
    
    </script>
    This one works pretty good. The width and height would need tweaking to suit your needs.

    VERY IMPORTANT: If you set to a small size, without resizing and scrolling turned on, make sure all links on the popup page are set to open a new window.

    Google says: No Pop-Ups or Pop-Unders AdWord Landing Pages.
    Hi All, just found this at Google about Pop-Unders and Adwords and I thought I better post it:

    Quote from Google AdWords Editorial Guidelines: No Pop-ups

    We do not allow links to landing pages 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.
    I want to cry I, just got my Pop-Under the way I want it.

    Love You,
    HumbleFish

    I think that only applies to adwords ie if you advertise using adwords, google won't let you direct to a site that has pop-ups/pop-unders. If it's straight from a google search link, they don't really care. That's how I read it anyway.

    That's not what I get from it?... The landing page is where the adwords link leads to (the adwords link destination) and if that landing page generates a popup or popunder I am in violation of what is said above right?

    The optimum words to focus on here is "ADWORDS" which = "advertisers".

    Links to landing pages = those landing pages the "advertiser" is leading the "Google Sponsor AD & Adsense AD's to.

    I don't know that it matters whether Google penalizes or not. If they don't, you'll still have an unnecessarily low conversion rate because popups and popunders tend to piss people off.

    Why not just leave the user in control of their browser as poll after poll shows they prefer?

    ForthWorld,

    The reason is because I notice that I always pay attension to the pop-unders when I surf... I hate the pop-ups and X-them-out at first sight; but the pop-unders don't bother me... And when someone comes to Your site and looks at it and then flees away You have one more chance to offer that person something that He or She might be interested in... It betters the odds in my opinion.

    Yes. I tried a hand at using adwords direct to the merchant's site at one stage and one of the merchants I directed to had a pop-up. Google disallowed that ad.

    Hi oscar, thanks for the input.

    So if I sent a person to my site's home page using adwords and my home page produced a pop-up or pop-under I would be in violation of google's rule?

    Yes, Google would suspend your ad until the situation is remedied. One workaround, if you use SSI or something for your site nav, is to ad the script to one of your site-wide include files, and make a duplicate of this file without the script for use only on the landing page. This way you still get to deal the pop when somebdoy navigates to one of your other pages.

    And just to reiterate - presence of a popup/under on your pages has no impact on how or whether Google will crawl and index your site. The no pop rule applies to Adwords landing pages, not the search index.

    just create version of your home page without the pop an send your adwords traffic to this page... that way anyone who hits your "home" link will land on your real home page.. and see the pop...
