Do people who use the internet really hate pop-up advertising as much as is being published or has the whole matter been blown out of all proportion?
This is something that I have wondered for a very long time (ever since I emerged onto the internet back in 2001) and I think it is about time that I found out the correct answer once and for all.
During the entire month of February I shall be placing a piece of code on this blog and my personal blog over at Dean Saliba Dot Com that will produce a pop-up advert every time a visitor arrives at the main page.
I have placed some ground rules down:
– One pop-up only.
– Only appears once per visit to the blogs.
I will also encourage visitors to leave comments about what they think of pop-up advertising on the blogs and I will also be asking people who do not visit my blog what they think of pop-up advertising (and why they don’t visit my blogs!).
At the end of the month (March 1st) I shall create a new post that will publish my findings.
EDIT: Sadly due to complaints form advertising companies who advertise on this blog I have been forced to end the experiment after only six and a half days.
