New Feature Suggestion - Amazon Products Opening In New Window

    I'd *really* like to see the Amazon products open up in a new window. I know that Adsense opens in a new window and after discovering that Kontera doesn't, I deactivated it. My adsense earnings really started to increase because people stayed on my page longer.

    I think that having the products open in a new window for Amazon would allow visitors to stay on our Hubs longer, too. This could also potentially increase our Adsense earnings.

    Yes, opening a advertisement in a new page/tab does has a effect, generally, on Time of stay of a visitor on original page, which gets prolonged.
    Generally, seen.

    Absolutely correct.  EBay and Amazon should be in new windows, as is anything that take people off our hubs - even links to other hubs.  That way HubPages maximises it's viewing and therefore click potential

    I disagree. I would rather they went a-wandering around Amazon and bought something. wink

    Google tends to view links that open in new windows much the same as pop-up ads, since it can't really tell the two apart, and downgrades sites that pop open new windows.
