Google and the Newsletter Light Box

How does google adwords feel about pop ups, and light box (I think that's what it's called), for newsletter sign-ups?

If you get a chance head over to my site. Give me feedback on the landing page below. My goal is for newsletter signups, secondary goal is click to affiliate site. ... use-today/

I'm unable to see the top box from this computer(it's a widget, comes on my page for the first few visits.)

Hi frankie29588,

I went to your site but I did not see any popovers. I did see the sign up form on the right sidebar. Google AdWords is not against pop ups so long as they are not on your landing page and that there is an option for the user to close the popover.

I hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi frankie29588,

I suggest that you also add another sign-up below the page so you can maximize the chances of your visitors to sign-up to your newsletter.

I do not know if it is just me but I find the landing page too crowded with content. Perhaps, try to break down your paragraph into bullet forms and headings. Also adding more graphics help make your content more readable and easy to the eyes.

I hope that helps!
