    David's scripts give us the flexibility of opening affiliate links in new windows by adding '_blank' onto urls containing an absolute reference.

    In the past I've used the 'open links in new window' option but I'm wondering which option others are using...and which option actually generates better results. I'm thinking of removing the '_blank' from all my pages except where absolutely necessary to reduce the amount of global editing I have to do after running the script(s) < I use a LOT of absolute URLS so I have to go in and remove the extraneous _blanks from URLs where I don't want them>

    Which method do you use?

    I almost never use a new target window for a sales link (as opposed to a "oh, you might be interested in some information..." link).

    I want folks OFF of my site and buying, not staying around my site in an open window.

    YMMV.

    ...good point.

    I've already decided to remove the '_blank' tags from my links...if nothing else just to reduce the time I spend fixing the absolute URLs that get a '_blank' attached to them where I don't need them.
