You can admit that some sites (like a Christianivory.pro) offer you pop-up ads.

Typically, such messages are trustworthy, and can just sidetrack you with its unexpected appearing. And it can be easily disabled, in case notices from this website are no longer required.
Pop-up notifications are rather an reliable marketing mechanism. If you are interested in goods of some sort, you can allow pop-ups from the internet site where you can get this stuff, and as soon as these things are in inventory again, or if you can have a discount – you will certainly get the notice regarding this. The counterparty – online retailers, automobile lending companies, etc – will be in profit, too – buyer will surely obtain a tip about the product he/she intended to buy. As well as such an advertising and marketing technique is nearly free – this factor is really essential for companies.
