What is Pop Traffic?

Even if you haven’t heard of “Pop Traffic” before, you’ve probably seen examples of pop traffic drivers while you surf the web – also known as “pop ads.” Users who click through a pop ad are grouped together and called “pop traffic.” 


What Are Pop Ads?

Pop ads are boxes that appear when a user is browsing a web page, usually triggered by an action. A pop ad could appear once a user opens the page, or it could appear after they’ve scrolled down the page. Other actions include clicking a button, a link, or any call-to-action.

There are two different types of pop ads: pop-ups and pop-unders.

The internet marketer, Charles Ngo offers the following explanation in a blog post:

Mobile Popup Definition: You click a link and a new tab opens on top of the original website you were on.

Mobile Popunder Definition: You click a link, and the page loads as normal, but another website has loaded under your original tab.


How To Use Pop Traffic To Drive Sales?

Depending on your campaign goals, a well-targeted pop ad could lead to higher conversions, more email subscribers, or increased sales. According to Profitsocial, businesses have found that there can be as high as a 300% rise in ROI from pop traffic from pop-under ads.

For example, if you want to promote your online store, a related pop ad could include a discount offer. If you want users to subscribe to your paid service, the ad could offer a free trial. Other examples include offering white papers, videos, or other content related to your goals.
