    Outbound links and relevance

    Hi,

    if my outbound links direct to highly related sites, does my site increase in relevance as well?

    I am currently using SE friendly urls for redirection. Would using the actual url in href or text be better?

    thanks for any feedback,

    DH

    It helps a bit yes. Anchor text is much better then just having the URL there...

    Its the other site gain a backlink and href. I dont think it will be highly benefited to your site.

    All the same about the url. Yes try putting Anchor text properly as that can help a bit.

    Your links do not help you. The text on your page (as such the anchor text in your links) can help, but you don't get a bonus just for linking to someone.

    According to the search engine marketing kit it WOULD help you with relevancy.

    It doesn't. If the kit says that it is wrong. I've posted empirical evidence multiple times on this forum. Do a search on outgoing links.
