When I was exploring the many profiles from 2 of the ning.com networks I am part of, I found that many of them had links to other places, which is common for websites. However, when I clicked on the links the new website would open in the same window as the website I was already viewing.
When you want to allow your users to see another website, then you need to allow the link to open a new window. Therefore still keeping the visitor on your website. You do not want to lose a visitor after all the effect of getting them to your website in the first place.
The following HTML code will enable you to open a web page in a new window:
|<a href="http://www.yourdomain.com" TARGET="_blank">Your Text</a>|
These are the parts you edit for your needs:
www.yourdomain.com - The website url you want to open
Your Text - The text you want your visitors to read and click on
Remember to add TARGET="_blank" to your link code (it's this bit that makes the links open in a new window).
For users of Blogger
If you are using Blogger.com you need to change some of the characters that are used in the code. I know what your thinking, how were you to know that. Well, the image below is what you need to add to your blog on blogger to open in a new window. As its an image you can't copy and paste. So I have included a text file which has the code you need to use.
