Block Ads, Defeat Pop-Ups, and STOP Page Hijacking


You're not alone!

Who hasn't surfed the web looking for information only tohave their session interrupted by those annoying pop-upwindows displaying everything from banner ads to newslettersign-up's?

Though pop-up windows and other methods of influencing auser's online experiences originally had positiveintentions, they now seem only to annoy and manipulateusers at every turn.

For anyone who ever felt extremely irritated by onlineadvertising, the following advice should help.

** Pop-Up Ads **

Pop-up windows open new pages in your browser without yourpermission and, sometimes, without your knowledge.

They slow down your surfing and cause confusion, even forthe most experienced surfer.

If you don't want to see pop-up windows in your browser,you should get a free pop-up blocker like the ones thatcome with the Google tool bar (http://toolbar.google.com)or the Alexa tool bar (http://download.alexa.com).

Either of these free tools "plug in" to your web browserand will stop the majority of pop-ups, including thesituations where 5 or 10 pop-up windows fly up on yourscreen and "attack" you all at once!

** Page Hijacking **

Have you ever surfed along peacefully when all of a suddenyou hit your back button and nothing happened?

Click-click-click - no matter how many times you hit thebutton, it seemed your web browser had been "wheel locked"to a certain site and no amount of effort allowed you toback track.

This nasty little trick, otherwise know as "page hijacking"involves inserting a small bit of code into a web page thatdisables your browser's "back" button.

To defeat this little nasty just click and hold the downarrow next to your browser's "back" button (on bothInternet Explorer and Netscape) to see a list of the lastfew pages you've browsed.

Click on a link in the history list to free yourself andresume surfing.

Careful though, you may not have been hijacked, you mayhave been the victim of the next dirty trick.

** Fast Meta Refresh **

A predecessor of the pop-up window, the fast meta refreshtrick involves opening one page and almost instantly havingyour browser redirected to another page.

This tactic, often used by search engine promoters, oftenleads to wasted time on pages that have little relevance toyour search.

It may also entail opening five to ten additional windows,frequently displaying offensive material such aspornography.

Closing all your browser windows and starting over seemsthe only sure-fire way to defeat this tactic. Hitting yourback button to retreat from the problem will usually justcause more windows to appear.

Quick Tip: If you find yourself attacked by multiple pop-upads, hold down the key and hit the keyrepeatedly, all the web browser windows on your screen willdisappear faster than new ones can pop open.

If you feel a website operator appears to openly abusevisitors with annoying or unscrupulous tactics, feel freeto complain to their hosting company or the search engines.

By doing so you might save the next person a whole lot ofinconvenience.
