    A javascript that show a popup after 20 minutes

    Hi ,
    I found this forum in google when i was searching for a script to add on my website that if my site is closed it show a new window with an url into it after 20 minutes or so .... even when my site is closed ..
    so there is no relationship between my site and the popup ?
    This could be very handy
    greets

    Definitely, it's not possible btw but it it were then any site you visit could spring a surprise popup on you later. Most people leave web sites after they've got what they wanted, realized it wasn't available or decided the web site wasn't worth the effort. By 20 minutes later they're probably on a whole other issue and to have a popup window show up then would definitely intrude on whatever the user is doing by then. If you want people to come back to your site you're much better off putting your effort into making the content of your site easy to find and of the highest quality.

    Think about it, basicly simple sites like Google and Yahoo don't need any fancy javascripts or popup windows to bring people back. They provide content which is easily accessed and useful, that's what brings people back time after time.
