Discussion on: Would you use target="_blank"? And how many rels?

That first resource is extremely useful. Thanks for this!

Currently, I use target="_blank" along with rel="noopener noreferrer" for links listed in my blog, which point to external social media sites like Twitter. The idea behind it was for users not to leave my site, but I will rethink this after reading these points from the first resource.

As I understand, nofollow may come in handy when linking to your internal and non-public sites, like admin panel.
