    Is it good SEO to use outgoing links to your blog post when practical? If so, why?

    Let's say I'm blogging about Cardinals batting coach Mark McGwire, for example. I could include a link to his wiki page or stats page from a major website like ESPN.

    It's good yes. There have been plenty of posts on this already so be sure to read them.

    I think even Matt Cutts has admitted this is a factor
