I just cannot understand why you guys are suppressing all target links. Do you realize that all clicked links will drive potential buyers elsewhere?

Let’s say the average joe clicks somewhere and finds an awesome website, he won’t come back here because he’s spending its time elsewhere. Nowadays everybody is browsing with tabs, it doesn’t make any sense to suppress target links or did I miss something?

Try using a target=”_blank” link and see what happens. It opens in the same window, always.

test

I’ve never noticed as I always open anything with MMB resulting in a new tab… sharing links does no harm though as long as its not to competitive sites…

Since I discovered years ago that after you right click you can right click again “Open link in new tab” I always open links in the new tab, and use this time to rest my left finger :P

I did not know that, it’s so much easier! :-) I should read the help more often!
