Pop-Ups : Discovering The Nature
You can admit that some websites (like a Info-news2.club) show you pop-up promotions.

And also, besides undesirable Info-news2.club pop-ups from the unknown site, you can at the same time see a lot of ads, including ones on the pages which at first have no ads at all.

Besides banner promotions, your browser can additionally display you a substantial number of various Info-news2.club pop-up ads, which show up in the lower right area.
