The pop unders started to get out of focus, to display bad content that annoyed the site visitors, and the ads gradually became more intrusive. Way back in 2002 when I started this website I searched for ways to build traffic.

Amen. Taking my visitors advice, I removed all the pop-unders from my sites, very fearful of loosing all the traffic I was getting from that advertising strategy. The reaction from the Internet users was to complain and to avoid the sites with popups, pop-unders, and such sort of things.
