    Should I be linking out to other authoriy sites in my niche as well to make it look more natural? Or would this cause the power to be dilluted to much?

    Yes it does look natural. You should use it rarely not on all posts since you would be losing link juice there

    It's a waste of a link in my opinion.

    If you are building the typical shitty PBN with a long home page if unrelated articles, then no. Don't link to authority sites.

    If you are building a PBN that looks like a money site, then yes. Authority links will make the site look natural. The PBN's I build now look just like money sites. In fact I monetize them.

    This is pretty much right. They dilute power away from the sites you're linking to. But one way to have the best of both worlds is to create filler articles that link to authority sites but don't go on the homepage. So if you have 10 articles you want on the homepage, make all of them Sticky, limit your blog to only showing 10 posts on the homepage, and your new filler article that links to an authority site will go live without diverting PR away from your money sites.
