Google became the most valuable website in the world by linking OUT from their website to OTHER websites. People find the site valuable because they provide fast and easy access to valuable information on other websites.
Give that, why would you think it’s a good idea to force visitors to open a new window (or tab) to view content at links from your website, bring.mn (aka, bringmethenews.com, aka www.bringmethtenews.com, aka www.bring.mn.)? [Seriously guys, you’re hurting yourself with the duplicate content & canonical issues.]
If you’re providing value, people will come back. If you’re not, you’ve only managed to hold onto people for an additional 2 seconds before they get the hint.
Show some pride in your work by dropping the [target=”_blank”] crap from your links.
