I agree with ogletree. I ran an experiment on my site recently. When I had outbound links to the top 'authority' sites my rankings went up within a few weeks. I got to thinking that some of my own pages that were similar were also doing well and probably viewed as 'authority' and had top rankings. I changed my outbounds to link to my own pages and the pages I linked from jumped to the top. Worked well for me. I repeated this throughout the site where links made sense (similar products). Let's just say traffic has increased.
