Thanks, Sue. Appreciate it.
Hi Tech Support, thanks for your advice. I will eventually follow up on it.
I confess that I found this pretty confusing initially, as I clicked on the "10-20% off with AutoShip Program" and it transferred me to this location: http://shop.zonediet.com/custom/pro...5155658094
So I concluded, it`s one of Zonediet.com's marketing strategies, and zonediet.com only ... and I thought you were just not aware of this feature of zonediet.com.
BUT ... it began to dawn on me what was really going on, because ...
I kept exploring, not because I was interested in buying at this particular time, but because I was confused by what everyone was saying.
I tried the two tabs on the ribbon, for example.
“Coupons” got me nowhere. Nothing.
But “Compare” says in the ribbon itself:
----Brad Geddes-Advanced Google Adwords
----Steven Hansen – Touching the Monkey:
----David Sadava, May R Berenbaum, David M.
---- Each of these have a price tackled on.
So these are NOT zonediet, it turns out, you are right!
Wow. I'm reasonably Internet-savvy, but, whomever did this was so good at it, it took me a couple of weeks AND this forum thread (which ate up time on my and other people's parts) to understand that this pop-up window wasn`t part of zonediet`s marketing strategy ...
I was SO annoyed with Zonediet.com but it wasn`t zonediet.com`s fault!
MY problem is getting it off MY laptop.
ZONEDIET's problem is having people getting annoyed at zonediet when it's someone else who dun it.
Frankly, and this is my opinion, it's probably in Zonediet's own best interest to do something about this particular ribbon since it's happening across the board, points back to Zonediet itself, and tricks people into thinking it's part of Zonediet's marketing strategy unless they explore further as I did.
If it were my website, I'd do something about it ...
