    I re-write most articles on the websites or get them rewritten.

    Although I had read somewhere that it can be. But I would like to know what BHW people think.

    It's beneficial for them, as well as for "interpersonal relations" or whatever you want to call it. It's not directly beneficial to your own SEO though.

    What Conor said. And are we still quoting moz here? I've been lurking around this forum for years, and every once in a while someone quotes them as an authority. On the other hand, you can quote John Mueller who said outbound links are not a ranking factor.
