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>
Thank you for solving the puzzle. this was a dead giveaway
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.

"John Mueller said that external links, links on your web site that point to outside web sites (or outbound links) are not a ranking signal. Just to be clear, links are a ranking factor - but you linking out to other sites doesn't help you rank better. He said the content you use for the link...

Hi Hubbers, I mentioned in the past that we've been working with a company that helps identify SEO issues. Many of the issues they identify come in the form of penalties which they believe hurt the entire site. We've been trying to look at these penalties and come up with solutions that...
