Pop-ups are publisher’s dream double-whammy

if you can get pop-ups around all the browser blockers, spyware filters, etc., then you’ve got yourself a gem to get traffic to your site. And, those pop-ups have an added benefit as well – their mere existence improves your traffic stats, so you can lie even more about said traffic, garnering higher CPM rates in the process.

Nice.
