Hey everyone, we just created a plugin that automatically adds the target="_blank" attribute to all external links while leaving all internal links alone.
The purpose is to improve user engagement metrics for SEO (set up literally in 4 clicks). Specifically the "time on page" metric.
Note - We will soon be providing a detailed case study on the plugins effectiveness at increasing Google ranks/traffic.
Please help us spread the word to our fellow WP SEOers.
Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions?
