    I usually make the page open in a different window too. But I don't think it makes much of a difference either.

    well, i caught my self allot when there is a site, that has a link, an doesnt open a new window. when i have readed it i clik the close button, and than i lost the site. and i not always want to search for the site again. so i think it is better to open a new window. so people will not exedently cloe the YOUR site

    How would I go about it as opening a new frame without leaving the site?

    @Beager You can open your links open in a new window by setting target = "_blank". Check out this forum post http://www.affilorama.com/forum/post19505.html

    I always make my affiliate links from photos or text open in a new window, though each time I do I wonder to myself if that's the way I should be doing things.

    My logic is the same as yours, Mark, that since I have multiple links or products on a page, I prefer readers to stay and browse longer. Plus, since the internet is so distracting, if they get lost on the site that opens in a new window for a few minutes or even hours, when they close that window, my page will still be there as a reminder of what they were looking at before they got distracted! (Based on my own experience of internet ADD of course :)

    It's much less likely that they'll come back to my site through the back button or not if they've spent a lot of time browsing since they left.

    Thanks for the video!
