You would have to include a query string in the popup url which identifies the link.
<a id="link1" href="http://domainname.com/?link=link1" target="_blank">

Open in new window

Then in the popup window you'd have to access the query string to get the value for link.
var linkvalue = location.search.substring(6);
// linkvalue = "link1"
window.opener.document.getElementById(linkvalue).value = "some value";

Open in new window

But what value are you setting in a link? Links don't have a value attribute.
