    It isn't good or bad... do the links make sense for your patrons?

    • GabrielG agrees
    • Jen1 agrees : If a link is not helpful to your reader then it's spammy and needs to go. If it is beneficial to your reader then it's good. Don't cram a post full of outbound links this is usually not helpful to a reader.

    Are you talking about outbound links or inbound links? You use the term outbound, but from context it sounds like you're referring to links from other sites to yours, i.e. inbound links.

    Edit: In any case, both outbound and inbound links are good for your site. Outbound links help show what you're relevant to, and enrich your visitors' experience with lots of supporting content and material. Inbound links help you rank higher. The more the merrier, in both cases, assuming that they're relevant and useful to visitors, as fathom said.

    I don't think that outbound links are much better for our site
    because OBL passes the value of our site to that OBL.

    Hello Pal, in my opinion, OBL are sometimes good, and it is a good practice to give some of the Outbound links, the matter is either they are Do-follow or no-follow. Why i am saying that OBL are good practice, as we all know only do-follow back-links are bad for website, we should have some no-follow to balance the website. In the same manner only getting back-links for the website without any of the OBL are considered as a bad practice, so try to give some OBL, if you do not want to give to any other commercial site, you can simply refer to information based website like "Wikipedia". Best of Luck!

    Outbound links point to another website outside of your main URL.
