    anyone noticed any opinion-central.com popups on hubpages ??? looks like this annoying popup only comes for the USA users..

    can anyone confirm this ???

    P.S : I looked into this issue again..looks like hubpages is allowing popups for US traffic..I think someone on hubpages staff should look in to this issue more seriously because this is against Adsense TOS.

    here is a screenshot

      Brand surveys are the only exception we have to our otherwise "no pop-ups" rule.

      Opinion-central.com is a web platform that hosts a brand survey for the Bing campaign currently running. These only display to users who are not signed in. Paul explained this in a Forum announcement earlier this month.

      The screenshot you posted, however, does not look like it's opinion-central.com. Could you describe, more specifically, what happened (specific url you were at, signed in/not signed in, time/day) when you saw the ad? That will help us confirm whether it was a valid [brand survey] pop-up or not.

      Thanks!

        few of my friends yesterday informed me about this Opinion-central surveys,so I had to use a US proxy to confirm this.so this popup could be a advertisement from that proxy.
        Anyway u already confirmed that u r currently running brand surveys on HP.I m sure those surveys are against the Adsense TOS. but can u confirm these surveys are not violating Adsense and Amazon TOS ???? is there anyway to disable them ??

          Yes, I can confirm that the opinion-central survey running for the Bing campaign is not in violation of AdSense ToS. You don't need to disable them since you should never see the ad or the survey if you are signed in to your HubPages account.

            Thanks for the reply Marina.But I m planning to promote my hubpages with Adwords soon.according to their rules pop-ups or surveys are not allowed with Adwords...

            is there anyway I can disable these surveys??? because I can't risk loosing my Adwords account ..

            thanks.

    Most likely, these ads are run on HubPages' 40 percent share of the page impressions, and on those AdSense would have been disabled.

    Is this a brand survey?

    It's also the fourth popup I've seen today while signed into my HP account. It just happens to be the only one I was quick enough to capture.
