I don’t know about you but i get really irritated when i open a website and your greeted with annoying pop ups, pop behinds, subscribe pop ups and any other pop ups, it seems this week i have been plagued by them.
There is the juggling banners telling me i am the millionth visitor and the stat counter shows they have had 2 visitors now if it had said congratulations your our third visitor i might have clicked the OK button.
“You are our 3 millionth visitor subscribe now and win a toy car”
There is also another big annoyance when you visit a site and a big pop up appears “Subscribe To Our Newsletter” what? i have only just set eyes on the place why the hell would i want to subscribe before i have read a sentence?
Then there is the site that will take forever to load and you sit tapping your fingers with immense frustration, i usually go and make a mug of coffee then by the time i get back that last graphic has just finished loading then as you think it’s all settled down up comes a pop up asking to subscribe etc arrggghh!!
I have started a new poll to see what irritates you most when you open a site? you can choose two if you choose “all the above” you can use your second choice to specify which one out of the options irritates you most▼
“Why not also leave a comment and vent some frustration about your choice”
