Links to External Websites
How should we link to external websites?
We recommend links to external (non-Boise State websites) open in a new window or tab.
We got an email asking us to link to a third-party website. Should we do it?
From time to time departments may receive email solicitations asking to include a link to a third party website on a particular page or site. Often these solicitations are presented as “a valuable resource” or “useful reference.”
Typically these requests are an attempt to gain traffic or improve the reputation of the third-party site. For more information read what Google says about Link Schemes. We strongly recommend against linking to these sites.
- Treat the request as spam by ignoring, deleting, or blocking the email.
- Respond with the following statement: “Thank you for your inquiry. Boise State University does not participate in link sharing programs. Please remove my contact information from your mailing list.”
