Do pop-ups still work on Your Website and Blog?

You see popups all over the web. But you know what, I bet you hate them. 

Hi, Everyone. My name’s Mohd Vashif. 

Today I’m going to answer the question of, Do popups still work? 

Do pop-ups still work on Your Website and Blog?

The short answer is yes. 

Do pop-ups still work on Your Website and Blog?

The reason you see them even though you hate them is that they work. People wouldn’t keep pop-ups on the site unless it was converting. 

Now, I know Google’s changed their algorithm, in which they have stated, “If you use pop-ups that are too intrusive, especially on mobile devices …” And I bet eventually they’ll do this with desktop, “you’re going to lose search traffic.” You know what, all the sites that I use my pop-ups on, my sites, my buddies’ sites like TimothySykes, we still use mobile pop-ups and our traffic hasn’t gone down.


Because we don’t show the pop-ups right when someone comes to the site.

We wait for them to be on the site for at least 20-30 seconds, and right before they’re going to leave, that’s when we show them a popup.

In essence, it’s the last dish effort to get them to put in their name or email or buy something.
Pop-ups still work if you use them upon someone leaving your website.

That’s called exit intent. So when someone’s leaving, that’s when you show them a pop-up.

You can use the tool Hellobar, which is free,, to create an exit popup. You can do pop-ups that take up the whole screen or part of the screen.

The ones that take up the whole screen tend to do the best. If you go to the blog and you’re a first-time visitor, if you’re not you can go visit the site in an incognito window, you move your mouse cursor out as you’re leaving, you’ll notice there’s a popup that takes up the whole screen.

That’s called a page takeover. It converts extremely well.


The last-ditch effort with a compelling offer.


How You Can Create a Blog Generates an Income

if you’re going to create a popup, don’t just create something that says, “Subscribe to my newsletter,” or, “Buy now.” You have to do something that gives value.

Someone’s leaving your website because they didn’t get what they’re looking for.

So if you don’t give them something really valuable, you’re not going to get them to convert.

Whether it’s an eBook or a guide, or a PDF, or a white paper, it has to be something of value.

If you’re an eCommerce company, a 10% off coupon or a free shipping offer, right?

That’s something that you can do within your exit popup. So think about what your visitors want that you’re not providing, and consider providing that in the exit popup, and you’ll notice that you’ll get more sales.

So they still work, use them. Don’t show them when someone first comes to your website.

Only show them when someone’s leaving your website. That’s how you don’t hurt your Google rankings, and at the same time, you can get more conversions
