Most people control whether links open in a new window or now via their browsers these days.
And since Google views any link that opens in a new window as a potential pop-up ad (which they rank down for) it's better to not have web pages set to operate that way.
Didn't know that Google views this option that way. They ought to modify their thinking based on how Internet users, especially the baby-boomer generation, use the Internet.
Many don't know that you can right-click to choose the option of opening up in a new window. I say this from my experience with older people coming into this internet experience.
