    Should I SEO a results page which links to external sites

    I run a movie review site. I have two main directories:

    /movies - AJAX only

    This page links to movie reviews, where 99% are to original content
    on external sites and 1% is to my own reviews in the /review directory

    /reviews - PHP

    Here I list links to my own original content, found on /reviews/{movie_id}.php

    Currently I have my /movies directory AJAX driven for the searching. Building it this way has made it inaccessible for the search engines unfortunately. However, they can see my own original content in the /reviews directory.

    Should I redesigning my movies page not to use AJAX so that search engines can access and index it, when all it does is link to third party sites? Are outbound links important?

    Your site doesn't lose web presence when you dofollow and doindex your own outbound site links if they are similar to your own sites content. Google likes seeing links to websites that hold content similar to your own site. If a dog grooming website had multiple links to car dealerships, Google's algorithm would most likely find that fishy and doc your positional rank for that on some level.

    Almost all of your PR comes from inbound links and onsite optimizations. Well developed outbound links structure using "target" and "title" could only help.
