Do you hate pop ups and newsletter sign up floaters intruding on your search results?
- So does Google…. You will be penalised if this intrusive practice continues on YOUR website…
An example from me. Last week I was looking for a particular brand, style and colour of shoe using Google search. I was served up a paid ad that immediately asked me if I wanted to sign up for a newsletter about shoes…. “Em, no I just want to buy those shoes hidden behind the pop up” So I click away and go to Amazon who will probably have the shoes I wanted and won’t annoy me with pop ups and click here for instant help…. Why would I need instant help for something I have searched for and found?
So Amazon got the sale and a large UK retailer was left without a sale…. The other killer was that I am an Amazon Prime member and got free shipping to my local Morrison’s.
- Your takeaway from this is do not ever let your webmaster let you insert pop ups or floaters on your website… Never…ever
