I see some sites using no follow links through out their sites, making their site almost look like a dead end for google spiders.
To me, I take outbound links as another factor for google to “rank” your site. Using excessive rel=”nofollow” on links doesn’t look natural.
But linking out to high quality sites with authority that are related to your content is a good thing and perhaps should not be tagged with “nofollow”.
I have a friend who has a business directory, and he estimates he has over 2500+ links going out, his content is unique, unsure about incoming links, and he pushes serious traffic in the SERPs. Ranks quite well.
