I enjoy personalizing my blog and my blog posts as much as possible. I also like to provide my readers with a link to shops, blogs or other pages that I reference.
Sometimes when you click on a link, it opens on the page you are on and in order to finish your reading you have to go back to the page. Sometimes clicking on a link will open the link in another window or page. Then as a reader you don’t have to worry about finding the original page again.
There is a downside for the blog or site owner if a link opens on the same page, there is always a chance that the reader won’t get back to your site.
What causes the link to open in a new page or the same page? The difference is in the way you write the link.
This is the address for my blog: “ http://www.blogspot.com/CherylsPurpleCow”
The code opening the link in the same window looks like this:
All you have to do is add this snippet of code right between the w and the “: “target="_blank
The link now looks like this:
It is that easy!
