    I am a fresher and recently joined an SEO firm. While going through the discussions I regularly come accross this term inbound and outbound links. Can I know exactly what it is?

    Thanks in advance.

    In case you can't be bothered to do a tiny amount of research then here's a qoute from the very first result:
    "In bound links are coming to a website while outbound links are going out from your site to others."

    The difference can be clearly mentioned using your website. Let us keep your website name as X and your friendly website name as Y.

    Inbound Link: If a link placed in website Y and that link connect you site this is inbound link. That is a link coming in.

    Outbound: If your website(X) mention a link to the website Y. Then it is outbound link. The links go out of your website.

    If you are not clear yet just view this video for clear information:

    Inbound links = all of the links from other website/page that points to your website/page.

    Outbound links = all of the outgoing links from your website/page to other website/page.

    I don't know what a fresher is but I assume it is a LEARNER. ;) and i wish you well.

    And i get why you asked here, you assumed you have friends here to help you.
    Be warned though, sometimes it is best to ask Google

    Inbound links are those links which are coming to our website from another website whereas outbound link are those types of links which are going to another site from our site. Inbound link is known as back links and outbound links are known as outgoing links.

    It's really amazing, how an SEO firm hires an SEO guy that is confused what an inbound or an outbound link is.
