    Default Outbound Links

    How important, in terms of SEO, is it to link to other reputable, relevant sites from your site?

    Not everyone agrees on this point.

    I think it can be good since it shows that you link out to content that is of value to your visitor.

    But....if you choose this method be sure to do so wisely.

    An example to consider, if your page is about blackjack, why would you link to a roulette page there?

    it helps the most for a new site not as much but still helpful for aged and reputable authoritative sites. Just make sure you dont link out to junky sites and ignore all of those link exchange emails.

    Google have gone on record to say that parts of it's algo are designed to "reward" sites that link out to quality resources. The person going on record however was Mr Cutts so take it as you chose.

    Link out when it aids your user and you can't go far wrong.

    I would agree if it brings value to your visitor it may help, but I have to think it has a low weight in the algorithim.

    I think that is VERY valuable actually, if you write a proper piece about something related to what you're linking out to. But then, I'm talking about a content-rich site, and a proper article, which is linking out to something that supports the topic of the story. Then it's valuable, but if the former isn't that good, and you wouldn't be happy to promote that story off its own back, then the outbound link probably won't count a damn.

    It's all about the content man. If it adds to the story then definitely link to other resources that add to the story.

    I've actually tried this with one of my websites to see if it has an SEO benefit. As far as I could see, it did not improve my search engine rankings. It probably helps a little but, but not very much in my opinion.
