iVillage drops (most) pop-up ads

 3:12 pm on Jul 31, 2002 (gmt 0)

...survey found that 92.5% of iVillage women found pop-up advertising to be the most frustrating feature of the Web.

IVillage is not alone in banning pop-ups. Recently, America Online said it would eliminate the ad format in the subscription portions of its network.

... in response to feedback from its primarily female audience.

This isn't a women's issue. Men hate pops, too!

After having a look at zdnet's most popular download page, it's fair to say that ad & pop-up blocking utilities are going mainstream. Popupstoppers is listed as 'new' yet it is showing 1,196,045 downloads.

Heh! I did read the thread, but readily admit I didn't click through to the article. This is making the buzz-circuit in the affiliate ranks right now, with some of the ad servers making the usual, predictable pronouncements.

RC's crystal ball says that pop-ups are going to lose substantial presence on the web in the coming year.

Great quote:
The Web could only remain a 3rd world bazaar with insistent vendors offering things we don't want yanking at our shirtsleeves for so long.
