I have a bunch of News sites and I am looking for people that want to display news on there sites...

Any Idea how I can promote this?

The site themes are,

general news
sport news
gambling news
networking news

Just find sites that might want them and ask the webmasters if they would be interested.

I clicked on your "Learn to Brand your images" link and looked around. When I closed the window I found a "Spyware warning" message. Am I correct in thinking that was a popunder that came from the images site?

Since I don't know what, if any, potential clicking anywhere on such a window has to cause problems, I use task manager to close the window and make it a point never to return to a site that does this.

That was a popunder from Casale Media. I have the popup frequency set at once every 4 days. It was not spyware, just a banner from an adnetwork.

First let me say I didn't think it was a problem in this case; you are one of the posters on this forum I make a point of reading carefully. However, I doubt my reaction to this kind of popunder is unique.

I see frequent articles on all the dangers on the internet and I have had the experience of having my browser default home page changed when I apparely clicked something I shouldn't have. Since I have no real idea of what is or is not possible, my rule is that I will not click on any part of such a window.

In addition, I particularly despise ads that feel like an attempt to trick me. In this case the add was designed to look like a windows error message warning me that I may have spyware. I would guess it is effective bacause many people think something has actually checked their system and found a problem. For me at least, being tricked into looking at something is not the way to start a good relationship.

I appreciate you have no control over what Casale serves and the frequency is very low, but guilt by association comes into play. I simply will not visit sites that treat me this way.

As they say "Your mileage may vary." :)
