Do outbound links have a positive or negative effect re search engines

    To clarify, I mean outbound links to non-affiliate sites.
    E.g. If I am doing an information hub and link to a relevant wikipedia page.

    Does google see this as good, bad or neither?

    Also is there a number that are good (i.e. a few) but too many make it seem dodgy?

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

      If the outbound link is to the page having same keywords as yours and information on the related topic, then search engines are going to like it.

      P.S. <snipped personal attack>

          The puzzle was in fact solved by this:

          If you noticed. big_smile

    There is no number of links, over  which  its bad and within which its free for all stuff.

    What you need to keep in mind is relevancy to content and of course not overdoing it.

    Though overdoing may only affect your google page rank
    But  Your Author score and hubpages Score will definitely suffer When u post  many and repetitive Non-Hub links in your hubs.

    Search around Forum, this topic has been asked so many times.
    You will get better responses.

    Be prepared for lots of different opinions!
    But according to Google on their webmaster blog it's all down to common sense. If it adds value - good.
