    Why would you want to remove it? It won't hurt you.

    Sure as hell won't hurt your ranking's if it's on relevant pages to your site. If not, stop drop and remove the link. :)

    If its on a relevant page, it shouldnt hurt your rankings. And by the way, no-followed links shouldnt be a cause to worry.

    Unless its on the Wikipedia page for Viagra or NAMBLA then I'd leave it. Wikipedia is a top level authority, regardless of OBL its a great referring domain man.

    I've finally cracked how to get Wikipedia links for all my sites lately and they have all seen a jump from it.

    I'd recommend getting a second, lower OBL Wikipedia post made. And this time go first class, it should pay off.

    He read somewhere by someone in seo-guru-land that if you want a "quality" link than OBL should be no more than 25.
    Am I right, OP?

    OBL is the abbreviation for Outbound Links. Meaning the Wikipedia page has 848 out bound lins, i.e your link means jack-shiz cause the page links out to so many other sources :)
