is it possible for links from your hub can open in a new window? It is really annoying to be reading a hub, click and link and away you go
You can open a link in a new window by holding the Control key while you click on it. Right click on a link will also give you some options.
HubPages prefer to let the visitor to decide whether they want new windows or not, rather than the hub author. Visitors prefer this too.
Interesting concept. Perhaps I haven't looked at enough hubs (from established hubbers), as no link that I've chosen to follow has given me such an option
You can make links on your Hubs open in a new window by following these instructions:
but doesn't it affect the bounce rate? and I'm pretty sure visitors don't necessarily know that they will be taken away from the site. I'm like Susanna, I haven't come across any link that gave me the option.
You can make your links open in another window if you want to.
HP management prefers that people be taken off the page and advises against having links open in another window.

A reader noted that he would have liked to see the links in my posts open in a new tab/window so that he could easily look at and reference multiple articles at the same time. I don't think this is necessary on all links, of course. But I do think that especially on links that go away from...

When creating links in the link boxes, is there a way to get them to open up in a new window? If not this is a much needed option to provide convenience for HubPage visitors and improve visitor retention.

Is there a way to include a hyperlink to another website without transfering the user away from Hubpages? In other words, is there a way to force a new window so that the original page is still present?

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using Link and RSS capsules. That works to an extent, but we feel that...

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves a page before reading the entire article, for whatever reason. If relevant links...
