Owing to this discussion, I am officially giving up on the “target=’_blank'” command for all my links. From now on, I will not include that code snippet at the end of my links contained within posts – for links to external blogs via the BlogRoll – the “open link in new window” remains the way it is.

I did check out the top 20 blogs on Technorati and NOT ONE of them has links that open in a new window! The least I can do is emulate their example.

I will also take 15 minutes each day and get rid of that code snippet from all my previous blog posts as well [ it’s going to be quite a job I tell you! ].

  1. Well I would ofcourse do the find and replace thing – but I have no clue how to build a script! The find and replace itsself is going to take a lot of time! Thanks Walker!

  2. Hi Ed,

    I love the MikeIndustries home page design and it suited my goal as well in terms of being brief and to-the-point, so yes, I copied the basic layout.

    I don’t think it qualifies for a “stealing” though.
    You are entitled to your opinion like everyone else.

    Thank you for stopping by!
