    They are usually made to give the visitors a sense of a quality website,but in most cases it dosen't have anything to do with Seo,and the conversion rate might also decrease due to user checking the "authority site"

    It's meant to show Google Bot what your site is about. I would say, it's good for letting G know what topics your site is related to when you link to specific pages. However, linking to Wikipedia per se does not make you rank any higher.

    I think everyone has there own opinon about this matter, IMO it will not hurt you to link to a high quality site, unless of course users start visiting that link and you lose sales.

    I would however think it has 'some' value.
