Does kontera drain PR?

    I disabled kontera but i have infolinks on my blog, so id like to know anyway if in text links doesnt drain PR? Surely it must because it is outbound links, unless it is nofollow. At what point does the trade off between PR and earnings form in text links become worth while for you? Thanks.

    The PageRank of a page is the PageRank of a page no matter how many outbound links there are on the page. However the more dofollow links on any page lowers the amount of PageRank that will be passed through each link. This means that pages with lots of dofollow links pass a lower percentage of PR per link than those with a few links.

    However, PR and earnings are unrelated. Concentrate on writting good content and getting targeted visitors and forget about PageRank completely.

        There is something else. I read somewhere that PR flows. Iow if you have many outbound links it flows out of your page, whereas if you have lots of inbound links you hoard it. They said you should try to have a lot of inbound links and only a few inbound links.There always seems to be a lot of conflicting info about SEO. Its annoying sad

    I've heard that the number of outbound links can have an affect too, but I don't know how true it is. They can certainly have some affect over a whole site because it will reduce the amount of PR flowing from one page to another in your site - you might want to have as few as possible on the home page for this reason.

    Outbound links are also used to determine if your site is in a good or bad 'neighbourhood' - so if most of your outbound links are to high PR pages then that is good for SEO, and if you link to a lot of spammy sites then your site is deemed to be spammy too. I imagine the javascript type links for kontera are neutral for that though.
