    OK, so we all know good quality back links help, but what about outward links? Do they make a difference? Thanks :)

    I wouldn't say they help your ranking, but I do personally think that Google likes it. On my authority style site, I always link to relevant sites.

    Relevant links look more natural in my opinion, like a link to wikipedia's description of your niche usually helps.

    Linking from your site to high ranking sites doesn't really do that much.

    Do it.. It won't cost you anything but you can be assured that Google will pass on some credit to your site. Just link it to Wikipedia. It helps or you can say, 'mind satisfaction'.

    I don't beleive that it helps in any way, the only thing you lose is linkjuice that you could use for your innerpages. Never saw any change of rankings with or without.

    It always helps I think and I use it, but make the outbound links nofollow.

    ALways no follow, and use your main keyword as the anchor text

    can someone explain why you use no follow for linking to authority sites?

    Because there's no point in passing link juice to it.

    Some people say nofollow links still absorb the linkjuice but just not pass it on and others say its useless to make outbound links to authority sites nofollow cause then Google see's that you try to trick them. Just rumours I heard at warriorforum.
