    I have been thinking about accepting 2 guest blog posts a week to my blog. Allowing 2 links in their signatures. Does allowing guest blog posts dilute your websites page rank from the out bound links? We are talking only like 4 out bound links a week.

    Only marginally. Wouldn't worry about it if they are providing good content.

    Unless the posts are totally unrelated, you are probably alright assuming you are also posting without links regularly.

    On my large site I blog about products and leave a link to buy the product for the 3rd party.. Never had any issues..
    Some aren't even affiliate links.

    Nauthiz666, great question. I always thought, wow, wouldn't guest blogs, post and any site that links out all the time cause issues? Then I couldn't help but look at places like ezinearticles.com hubpages.com etc, and see that, as much as it could cause an issues, the 4 links a week you are doing, won't be an issue. Hope this helps! Shawn
