TWIS 14 July 2017 AdSense Bans Pop Unders

Adsense Actions to take:

  1. If you are using pop unders on your site and you run Google Adsense, you either need to stop the pop unders, or remove Adsense from your pages.
  2. If you use pop ups, you need to remove Adsense from the popped up pages.
  3. Pop ups and pop unders make money, but there have always been better ways of making it.
  4. Contact me if you would like to discuss this further.

Pop Ups & Pop Unders Discussion:

About time too! I must admit, I thought Adsense had banished pop ups and pop unders a long time ago. It’s good that they have banned pop unders completely, since these are a very effective, but very detested form of advertising. (They are very effective because users don’t notice them popping and then forget which site popped them).

It would be good if they also banned pop ups. They are an instant site turn-off for me, but they probably can’t go that far.
