I had a chat with a guy who owns hundreds of sites, which are making him a fortune (no, not Will ). I asked him about his approach and what he does on his sites, SEO-wise, in order to get ranked well. Apart from saying that quality is what matters, he said one thing that was really something completely different from what I thought before: he said that it actually helps your SERPs signficantly IF you put more STRONG outbound links on your site. I never really thought about that; I always tried to lower the number of outgoing links. He claims that by putting a few strong (the ones that already rank) outbound links on your site, your SERPs will improve.

What is your opinion about this?
