NY Times has a little box that comes out

    NY Times increases traffic by having a little box that comes out at the bottom of an article, but not until you scroll most of the way down. Wonder if Hubpages could do that with one's own content. They don't have to be related.

      A box about another related article or that authors other work? I could see if it was related but usually it looks like a link you can hover over to give more info, I'm not saying on that site but I have seen that on sites. It might be cool if it were related but I'm going to go check it out for curiosity sake. I'm not sure exactly what you mean.

    That is a super-annoying feature!  It would be horrible if HubPages did something like that.

      I agree with relache. It's a very annoying feature! Often adverts work in that way as well, which annoys me, too.

      Hubpages gives plenty of ways for you to promote your own work, both internally and externally, as well other sources and sites.

        Just throwing it out as a suggestion. I would not advocate advertisements working this way.

          I actually like the feature on NYT.  I don't see it working here, but when I'm reading the news, I appreciate related articles. If I'm not interested, I don't read it.
