    Should you put Amazon Affiliate links Set to open in window or is it better for them to click and go directly from your website page to amazon?

    It's better to open Amazon Links to open in a new window to lower bounce rate.

    Sorry to drag up an oldish thread...but I wondered about this today.
    I have a terrible bounce rate on my Amazon sites, over 90% because I do not send users through to a new window as I worry about visitors not going direct to buy.

    What does everyone else do?

    Thanks!

    what is the purpose?
    Lowering the bounce rate this way wont affect search optimization
    Also, this is'nt affect conversion rate or cookie on Amazon

    Well bounce rate could be a determining factor as the site is linked to Google Analytics. And then, of course, Google has all the data it needs IF it chooses to use bounce rate as ranking signal.

    I agree, but if your page is in another tab and you don't make any action on it - it doesn't affect bounce rate. Again GA recognize when you click on external link on your site.
