Is there a way to control the number of views per visit?

Is there a way that I can manage the pop ups display count per visit or per day, per user? The setting to “Popover shown less than” does not give me much control to avoid being annoying to visitors. I have it set to “1”, but then they only see it one time. If I set it to “3” they will see the popup 3 times, consecutively on the same visit, which encourages them to click the “Never show this again” link.

I think there must be a better way to approach this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you! – Scott
