Popup ads and the Popunder ads are one of the best-performing ad format(s) that can generate high eCPM compared to the traditional banner ads which suffer from the ad blindness factor. Since these pop ad formats have high viewability, the advertisers pay more money to promote their products and services in pop ad networks to increase the user engagement. Similarly, the publishers can enjoy high CPM by publishing these ads on their blog. This article explains about the popup and pop-under ads and lists the top 10 best popup and popunder ad networks. 

Popup and Popunder ads

About popup and Popunder Advertising:

Popup advertising and popunder advertising are two different pop ad formats in the online advertising. The advertising networks pay the pop ads publishers in CPM basis and they are not paid for any clicks(one or more ad networks listed below pay for clicks). So, whether the visitor interacts with the ad or not, the blogger will be paid when the visitor triggers the pop ad. Since pop ads occupy almost the entire screen, the visitors will definitely view the ad. Hence they are high paying when compared to the CPM-based banner ads, sticky ads etc. Learn more about the popup and popunder ads below.

Popup ads:

  • Popup ads are also called as the interstitial ads in some of the ad networks.
  • The popup ad will appear on the screen in half size, full size or a new window depending on the settings of the ad networks.
  • The popup ads will be displayed on different occasions which can be controlled by the publishers. The publishers can set the popup ad appearance time in the popup ad network dashboard.
  • These are some of the preferred popup ad settings. The popup ad will appear when the visitor tries to leave the web page, the popup ad will appear when user clicks anywhere on the web page, the popup ad will be displayed automatically after few seconds (Ex. 60 seconds), the pop ad will automatically appear when the user scrolls the page and reaches the half or end of the page.
  • The popup ad formats are available for both desktop traffic and the mobile traffic. In the case of the mobile phones, popup ads are called as the interstitial ads which spread across the entire page when triggered. The pushup ad similar to popup ad will appear on the mobile phones like a notification in a small box.

Popunder ads:

  • The popunder ads are different from the popup ads. The popunder ads will open in a new window when the visitor triggers the ad according to the settings. 
  • The popunder ads are mostly the whole web page that opens in the new window under the current window.
  • The popunder ads are annoying but they are the highest paying Cost per mile ad formats.
  • The popunder ads will appear when a user clicks any spot/link of the website. The visitors cannot do anything other than scrolling unless they watch the popunder ad. So, each pageview will generate revenue while using the popunder ad formats on the blog.
  • The popunder ads are available both for the desktop and mobile traffic.

Advantages of using Pop ads:

  • The Pop ad formats are the highest paying ad formats on the CPM ad networks.

  • The pop ads work best than the standard ad formats for the advertisers of certain categories.

  • The popup and popunder ads publishers do not have to worry about invalid clicks.
