I first encountered this hyperpromote pop-up in a blogger friend’s blog. I don’t know what I clicked at that time but this annoying ad just popped-up. At first, I thought it came from another blog because I had a lot of open tabs at that time. So I just disregarded it.
We all know how readers shy away from sites with pop up ads. The first thing that comes to one’s mind is that it’s a virus.
But I had noticed that everytime I leave a comment on her blog, a hyperpromote ad just appears immediately. I left her a message informing her that her site might contain a virus of some sort for such ads to appear – and she said she’ll investigate on that.
When I did my bloghopping in the next few days, I’ve noticed that more sites are showing this annoying pop up everytime I click the “leave a comment” button. “Is the virus becoming viral?” I thought.
So today, I search about hyperpromote on Google and found this article by Jan.
THE HYPERPROMOTE CULPRIT
According to her (or him?), those Hyperpromote pop-ups are from the site Bidvertiser. Pop up ads are enabled by default for all new publisher sign ups and in order to disable them, you need to do it from your Bidvertiser dashboard/account settings.
Bidvertiser claims that payouts are higher for pop up ads but… there’s a BUT here, we all know how readers shy away from sites with pop up. The first thing that comes to one’s mind is that it’s a virus.
So Bidvertiser publishers, if you are more concerned with losing your readers (because they’ll think your site has a virus) than earning a few more bucks, you just know what to do.
