Push Notifications – Anchor Text Links Distract Concentration

Are not push notifications, inbound or outbound anchor text links diverting your concentration while reading an interesting article? What is the purpose of push notifications and anchor links?

Is it not irritating to suddenly see a push notification when you are seriously reading a blog post or article? Is it not distracting you from the main focus? Why the hell you receive push notifications at all either on your desktop or iPad or mobile. Who sends these notifications. What is the purpose? How to disable them? 

At least I am unhappy when I suddenly see a pop up while browsing the internet for required information or seriously reading an article. Similarly, I am annoyed with an inbound link or outbound link while reading the main content even though it is pointing to added information. I wish these inbound or outbound links to appear at the end of the article as sources of information.  They may be useful for SEO purpose but to me, they are bad elements and diverts  attention

I do not agree if someone or even an expert says that they are offering more valuable information on the same topic through an outbound link or an inbound link. How do they forget that  going away from the reading page to those links, is it not present reading incomplete? How do they assure that one will come back to the original post again? These are many questions and doubts I have about push notifications and anchor links? I try to figure out reasons and solutions for this and tried to put them under the following heads.
