How to Create Exit Popups?

There are two kinds of exit popups that I know of.

One is the kind at Under Ground Cash Secret
(Try clicking the back button)
Sorry, I am not allowed to post links.

The other is the kind at Psychic Popup
(Move the mouse over the top of the page)

My site has a high bounce rate. I want to create a exit popup that visitors have to click to leave. The kind of popup I want to create is an exit popup like the one on this website.

Underground Cash Secret

Those popups stop you when you click the back button or the close button.

I am able to use Psychic Popup generator to create a popup but those doesn't stop the visitor from leaving if they click the back button. See an example of this kind of popup here.

Psychic Popup

Is there a generator or html script for the first kind of popup? Please reply to this post if you happen to know.

    Yeah, exit popups are the best way to make it so that vistors NEVER come back. If you even have to be asking this question you shouldn't be putting one on your website.

      Exit popups are proven to increase sales. By as much as 80%!

    Yeah right, you'd have to be an idiot to believe that.

    You could write a javascript function (in the header) that loads and accompanying .html file when the page unloads.

    Code:

    <head><script type="text/javascript">
    function popup(){
    window.open(yourhtmlfile)
    }
    </head>
    <body onunload="popup()">
    <pre>.
    Your code here
    .</pre>
    </body>

      Will be blocked by more than 99% of all browsers in use today. This type of popup will only open in response to a click in all modern browsers.

      I've been assuming we're talking about the annoying confirm statements:
      ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO LEAVE? [ok] [cancel]
      Which is a horrible business practice, and rightly frowned upon by Adwords, as mentioned.

        I prefer the psychic pops to the other one. All you need to do is put a 10px high div floating across the top of your page with an onMouseOver event to pop a div via CSS in the middle of the page.. You won't prevent them from leaving like the java alert, but you might catch their attention and keep them back.

          That is only marginally more tolerable than pops ups. A guaranteed way to make sure I never come back to your site, have a pop up that I have to look and READ to close.

    Please note that Google Adwords doesn't like Exit Pop-ups.
    When visitors click the "back" button they need to go the previous
    page without interuption. My ad's got declined for the exact same reason

      Yes, it's true about Adwords declining ad for website
      that has an exit pop up.

      I just confirmed this with Google Adwords support.

      Guess I now got to test an alternative landing page
      with Yahoo and Bing traffic instead.

    It can help and hurt your business. If you're using an exitsplash type of thing to make your product $20 bucks cheaper than in some cases it's good. But when you keep trying to exit but can't.. that's when it becomes annoying.

    You write the following java script in the heading part

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function popup(){
    window.open(yourhtmlfile)
    }</script>

    and in body tag you write onunload="popup()"

      AGAIN, this WILL be blocked, and is totally useless.

    On the topic of exit popups, does anyone know how to get Aweber to pop up when they try and close the page?

    I see you already installed the pop up. I find it useless. The problem is you promise too much and you advertise a success of someone else, not your own. I don't know who Jason is, nor I know why should I care that he has a Ferrari and a nice house. Show me a picture of your car that YOU earned using this system, then I may be interested. sorry, no sale here.

    Oops, I just turned JavaScript off... where did your popup go?
    The only exit popup that isn't going to be normally blocked is the annoying, useless confirm statements.

      Does anyone know for a fact that a popup will affect your google ranking and if so, would it affect the site as a whole (assuming the popup is on the default page) or just the offending page?...

        Google search doesn't care about popups. For the most part the spider just ignores scripting.

    I nearly bought a package from someone advertising here - until I was presented with one of those exit popups - it killed the sale.

    I just bought Psychic Popup for $17. It lacks in a few areas.

    1. I have to create the pop-up image.
    2. I can't figure out a way to make my pop-up image linkable.

    Does anyone know how to accomplish do these two things? I can make an image but what's a good cheap image tool to use?

      Put the .js file in the same directory you page is. Now put the following code before </body>.

      Code:
      <script language="javascript"> 
      var exitsplashmessage = "this is your message";
      var exitsplashpage = 'http://google.com';
      </script> 
      <script language="javascript" src="exitsplash.js"></script>
      Change this is your message to your text
      and google link to the link you want to redirect your user.
      Hope that helps

        You better well have an excellent reason for the visitor to put up with a unblockable pop-up
        exit screen.

        Those things are more annoying than mosquito's. Only one way to deal with them, that is to close the browser!!

    Just a quick question. I purchased Psychic Popups. Problem is that when someone fills out my autoresponder the new window stays embedded in the page where the code is located. What am I doing wrong? I want them transferred to a landing page within the site.

      This is how I did it.

      For the URL of pop up content, I gave the autoresponder URL.
      I set my autoresponder to point the subscibers to a thank you page.
      In the "thank you page" I have link to an "instructions page". The link opens up in a new frameset.

      You can check my working example at [internetentrepreneurshiptraining.com] Sorry, I can't post links yet.

      And on another note, you can visit my website [starz.ws/ExitProphetPro/] for free.

    Thinking, to create the perfect message, the most important thing is to understand the reasons for your visitors to leave. Price is too high? Give them a discount. Do they know it? Give them a free report, so you can follow to build trust and credibility with them.

    Place the following script between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags:
    <script language="javascript">
    <!-- begin

    var exit=true;
    function exitwindow()
    {
    var url = 'URL/to/popup.html';
    var win = 'toolbar=0,directories=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,
    resizable=0,width=250,height=300';
    if (exit)
    open(url,'WindowName',win); }

    // end -->
    </script>
