    Just wondering if you link to a site which has huge amounts of outbound links on the page in which you have a anchor link on, does this decrease your link juice?

    No it does not, a link out will have the same value no matter what the destination site is

    Just say a site has PR3 and over 300outbound links like. If one of those outbound links (backlink) was mine, doesn't that mean i will get 3/300 link juice/pr back to my site?

    The only one that really knows is Big G
    But the general feeling to most SEO people is
    Let's say a PR1 site has 1000 link juice points to share
    And say a PR2 site has 2000 link juice points to share
    And say a PR3 site has 3000 link juice points to share
    And so it goes on

    You will need to divided them points by out going links on the page
    IE more outbound links = less juice
    And in the big G webmasters guide lines does it not say max links on a page 100 give or take a few

    Myself I would look at the quality of the page/site
    As your page rank tool bar is out of date info before you get it

    Yes that is possible but not guaranteed, you also need to see where those links are coming from.

    PR is really not a good indicator anymore. Focus on content and contextually relevant back links. But yes, the theory that you have to divide link juice by the number of links holds true, with few exceptions where the semantic relevance and authority of the page with the large number of links outweighs the number of links, in which case the "juice" reduction would be considerably diminished.

    I completely agree with oldenstylehats, some of my strongest/juiciest backlinks have low PR but great content.
