Banner are going to be the best but I agree you should look to change hosts because there are so many free hosting offering no forced ads.

Yeah, it's like Saturday Night Fever all over again. But I do admit, sometimes animated banners can work better than plain stand-in-the-corner-doing-nothing image ads. But just not in this case.

If you don't want to change hosting providers, use a banner ad. Pop up and under ads drive people crazy.

Steve H, exit pop ups guarantee I will never go to that site again. I really hate them.

As I said before, I hate pop-up ads, but you have a good point Silk. The problem is that though the browser has blocked the ads, the user will still know that your website has tried to display the annoying ads. That's not good for your website's reputation.

For example, in Opera browser pup-ups are blocked by default. Although Opera displays a small notification in the right bottom corner it is pretty hard to notice this info.

Since you have to choose between those options I'd go with the banner ad like most other users have agreed with as well. Pop-ups are just way to annoying and you'll get a higher bounce rate with those ads im my opinion.

But here is their rationale (and I feel the same as you) - they depend on impulse buying and are taking the chance you may be on the edge, but have decided to leave. By offering you a discount on an exit ad, you may just buy. They figure you'll probably never go back to their site anyway, so no harm, no foul. It was worth a second try. This is one reason I never buy on impulse online - I always exit the site first to see if they offer an exit discount. A lot of times, I'll go to a site wanting to buy - possibly based on an infomercial I just watched. Once there, I rationize the cost is too high, and reluctantly decide to pass on the deal. Wait! It's suddenly $50 cheaper - I start rethinking the whole thing. Maybe I change my mind - because I really wanted it in the first place.

Banners should be preferred as the popups are blocked many times.

In my opinion, pop up ad is not good for customer experience.

How about the AD position in the right side of the 1st post in every thread? Visitors always take care of the 1st post.

Thanks.

Go with a banner ad, maybe even a text. Pop ups are really annoying.

I suggest you go with banners option too. Visitors would tolerate them more. pop unders and pop up give a kind ofillegal image to the site.

In my opinion, pop-ups should not be used for ads because many people turns pop ups option off from their browser.

So, if their ADS are to give you some benefit, go with option 2. Otherwise, go with the first option.
