How do I force an ad to open in a new window?

To cause an ad to be displayed in a new window, you must change the target window settings when defining the ad unit. By changing the target attribute to _blank, you're instructing the browser to open the target URL in a new, unnamed window.

To change the target window attribute:

  1. Select an ad unit from the Inventory tab.

  2. Click edit next to Target window, then select _blank from the drop-down.

  3. Click Save.

You can use the same method described above on an AdSense ad unit to force the ad to open in a new window.
