A few well respected members here have indicated they've noticed emperically that they have seen slight rankings increases with outbound rankings.
Did they say what a slight increase was? And does adding outbound links mean they had zero and added ten or they already had a lot and then linked to some authority site like wikipedia or something?
Adding links when you have 1000 and adding links when you have zero are different things. And is it possible that this slight increase came from something else, like Panda tossing out a competitor?
Could the people who indicated this elaborate? Was it a controlled test or a random observation? In my experience rumors that lack precision are most likely just rumors.
