Another tip.. If you have a hobby site (I have one in the aviation industry), link to a news event from the homepage daily. I use link management software to auto publish the link so its quick to do. So for example I link to the top aviation news story every day, 5 days a week. I dont know if this has specifically helped but I know it has not hurted me in the slightest. Its great content for the end user (users constantly tell me they love it and some even suggest the news story for that day) and my rankings are #1 for my primary keywords. Thats another case against the whole "bleeding pagerank" paranoia. In the past seven years I've been doing the link to news and these are links to major news websites. I archive the links so they never are removed from the site. Thats literally thousands of outbound links to news sites. None of them link back (its not expected when you link for content reasons). No "bleed" here.
