Pop Traffic

What is Pop Traffic?

Pop traffic, is driven from advertisements that open in parallel with the website they’re trying to reach. This traffic is generated in two ways: The first is when the site physically has the ad code for the popup on their property. The second is when the website visitor has a toolbar or plugin on their browser that is generating the popup. Many pop networks allows you target by keywords or domains as a way to determine when the popup should occur.

Popads
Pros:
PopAds has a ton of traffic in several geos for both desktop & mobile. The traffic can be bought for as low as $1 per 1000 so is for people looking for a ton of traffic for a cheap price.
Cons:
Like most pop sources, PopAds has a ton of low-quality traffic. They’re also considered a blind network and will only pass a website ID as opposed to showing the actual referrer. This is also a source that many people new to running paid traffic flock to, because of this there are 300-400 different advertisers per country that you will have to compete against.
Conclusion:
If your offer is simple to complete and is “impulse” driven such as Sweeps, Email submits, App installs, etc. – PopAds will do very well for you.

adcash
adcash
Pros:
If you look at the top traffic domains in most countries, you’ll see adcash at the top. Rightly so because they have a TON of traffic. Adcash use to be a managed buy platform but just recently released their self-serve platform.
Cons:
Much like the other blind traffic sources available, adcash has a lot of low-quality traffic. You will have to spend quite a bit of money to find which placements arn’t working for you and blacklist them appropriately.
Conclusion:
If you are already having success and want to scale your campaigns on a larger source, adcash is a great place to be. Just remember to limit your variables as much as possible or you can burn through a marketing budget very quickly.

TribalFusionLogo
TribalFusion
Pros:
Tribal Fusion has a lot more premium publishers than others in the space. They also make it much harder for advertisers to get on, so there is a lot of opportunities.
Cons:
TribalFusion allows their publishers to have multiple popups on a page.
Conclusion:
Desktop Pop Traffic is a dying breed in the age of smart phones and popup blockers. Because of this, however, a lot of advertisers overlook the opportunities. If your product or service is very eye-catching, and an impulse buys, then TriablFusion would be a great addition to your traffic stream.
