Ive heard a few murmurs recently about outward bound links being beneficial to a sites SE performance. What!? I was always under the impression that outward bound links were bad! For 2 main reasons - You risk people leaving your site through them and they dilute page rank.
Now, when i think about it... outward bound links should be rated as a good thing. The search engines should actively encourage us to link out as this is the way the Internet works and it enhances user experience. Now I'm confused. What should i do? Should i provide my visitors with a wealth of resources out side of my site or should i completely forget about them and try and provide it all myself.
Second question!! If it is indeed true that outward bound links are now seen as favourable should i put "no follow" tags on them to sustain my page rank or will that defeat the object of having them??
As you can tell, im confused. SOS.
