How to make Free Republic “STICKIER”… (Vanity)

The way to make a website more popular is to increase it’s ‘stickiness’, which is defined as staying on the website and giving it more hits. Here’s ONE way to do that:

When you do an < A HREF > tag, make it a point to include the following text: TARGET=”_blank”>

This will launch a new window with your referenced link, and keep the FR window undisturbed. Allow me to demonstrate. Let’s say someone posts a picture of a pretty girl, and I was tempted to post, “I’d hit it”. I might, instead, post this:

< a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcwYEGdKto8″>Here’s my answer…. this song goes out to YOU, good looking nympho at a Mensa meeting….. we all love you down at WLAZ…..”You’ll Never Find“….. the time is 6:44, and 48 degrees with clear skies at Hartfield airport…..All Hits, All The Time at WLAZ…..< /a>

Note that the above does not have the TARGET=”_blank” verbiage. Note it’s behavior. It took you away from the Free Republic website, decreasing the ‘stickiness’.

Now let us add the TARGET=”_blank” verbiage….

< a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcwYEGdKto8&#8243; TARGET=”_blank” >Here’s my answer…. this song goes out to YOU, good looking nympho at a Mensa meeting….. we all love you down at WLAZ…..”You’ll Never Find”….. the time is 6:44, and 48 degrees with clear skies at Hartfield airport…..All Hits, All The Time at WLAZ…..< /a>

See the new behavior? You opened a new window. Neat, huh?
