    Hi guys,

    Should we have external links on our websites? I mean... this can decrease the SERP's?

    Thank you

    Actually, having outgoing links to authority sites is benefic. On the other hand, having outgoing links to porn and gambling sites is a coffin for your website in Google.

    Keep the quality outgoing links but tag them with rel="n0follow". This helps boost pagerank on your site (you won't lose any pagerank "juice").

    Yup, definitely nofollow if you're gonna outbound links. Also, I don't link to my competitors (the ones above my rank) even though they are authority sites.
