I think that I know now how to talk about this floating box. On negative side it looks like click rate is not everything, and UX arguments, user annoyance and brand image are also important. On the positive side, you can advertise certain services more effectively. There are points to discuss. I also wish I could find some more recent research.

A really great list of references, way more than I expected. Thank you. I just wonder whether the verdict "Annoying but effective" is correct? Subjectevly, it seems that since 2008-2009 more websited used such floating boxes, but these days I don't see them very often. Is it so? If it is, then there should be a reason for this.

@JonW actually, we have a different statistics from our site. Approximately 20% of users have screen width less than 1280px and would need to manually close this box. But this is also a significant number
