When someone enters your site, a window will pop open ‘underneath’ your website with another members website in it. For every 2 visitors to your site, you are guaranteed a further 1 visitor to your own site. For example, if you get 100 visitors a day at the moment, you will get at least 150 visitors with our system.
Q. How many pages can I place the pop-under code in?
A. Place the code in as many pages as you wish. It’s best to place the code in all your pages as visitors to your site may enter on different pages.
Q. Will visitors to my site keep seeing pop-under windows on every page?
A. No, the visitors to your site should only see a single pop-under during any visit to your site.
