    Outside link opinion...

    many people have links/ads to other web pages. Some have it open in a new browser window, others open it in the same window.

    Which way is better? Will open it in a new window keep visitors in your site longer?

    Yes, opening in a new window is probably the best idea.

    This way people at your site don't get swept away to another site and being forced to use the "BACK" button in their browser to get back to your site.
