Attention Free Sumome Users

Last Update: January 02, 2017

I have been using the free version of Sumome for quite some time now. I use the list builder pop up to get subscribers to my list.

But, there doesn't seem to be a way to shut this off for mobile users (maybe there is in the paid version - but I can't afford that right now). With the new changes from Google to make mobile users experiences better I am worried that my site ranking will be affected as a result.

So I am curious as to what others are doing (if you are using free sumome)?

Is the list builder pop up considered intrusitive? Should I get rid of it altogether?

Any insights would be great.

Thanks

Hi Tanja, I switched SumoMe List Builder off & switched to Milotree which is also free, integrates with Mailchimp and less intrusive (and great for Pinterest).

Oh I haven't heard of that one. I will look into it.

Here is your answer - under the list builder, go to Display Rules. Make the 'show rule' to be on the home page.
Make the 'do not show rule' to be 'on mobile devices.

Thank you! I just added the rule "don't show on mobile devices". But I left the "show rule" to be all pages because many people get to my site via social media. They may never go to my homepage if they are just reading the article they clicked on.

But I assumed the rule "don't show on mobile devices" would cover all pages/posts on my site.

If this is not true, please let me know.

I have not been using pop-ups. They are now off the "menu". Cheers, William.

Yes, it's considered intrusive. I turned it off for mobile.

Are you using Sumome? I can't see how to turn it off for mobile. I assumed it wasn't available in a free account.

Yes, but I don't remember how to do it off the top of my head. I only have the free version.

I have looked everywhere and there is no option to turn it off for mobile. I spent the last hour digging around when I finally decided to write this blog to see if the WA community could help me out. Are you using the list builder pop up? Maybe it's an option with other ones, but not this one.

I will log into one of my sites and get back to you - on mobile atm and it's not conducive to in-depth research.
