    Hi all,

    I'm not sure I can get an answer to this here, but I'll try anyway.

    I have an adult website and I embed videos from websites like xvideos and tube8.

    The problem is that if someone clicks on the video to pause it, or clicks anywhere outside the play button, a new tab will open with the corresponding video page on xvideos/tube8. Obviously this takes traffic away from my website.

    Is there a way to prevent this? Like a Javascript code or something?

    Thanks a lot

    Open in new WINDOW is not a perfect solution for you here, but many people WILL simply close a spawned pop-up, so whereas a tab will often have them closing your website ... a new window typically will have them closing the spawned window, often before it can even finish spawning.

    If your installation is a wp blog ... there is a plugin called "open in new window." It should decrease your bounce rate a little bit, and cut your traffic loss a bit. It's worth considering getting another plugin which will further reduce your bounce rate since this is one of the biggest problems with adult sites, i.e. people may not stay on a site like this as long due to spawning popups, ad layouts, etc...

    If you are using mobile redirection such as juicyads, plugrush, etc... instead of monetizing on-site with a mobile friendly theme - your bounce rate is getting killed, and you could be losing a lot of money. Without effective testing procedures it's difficult to say for sure, but I have seen this on my sites.

    Maybe try using the video hosted link from the cdn its hosted in with another video player. I'm looking into that right now and Ill post if i find a solution.

    Update:

    If you get Video.js - HTML5 Video Player for WordPress you can "embed" videos without a link back, I haven't experimented with different sizes yet and if it works in a live environment since sites like pornhub use a security token.

    The site thumbzilla.com does it. Problem is that's pornhubs property.

    I would try to find a tube you can embed from that doesn't have that stupid click thing. Like porn.com

    Javascript might be a better way to do it.
