I would appreciate some thoughts on the difference between inbound and outbound links and their relative importance.

Hey morty - that's a BIG question... ;)

Obviously for traffic and ranking in engines using link popularity as a factor in ranking inbound links are more important.
Perhaps you could specify what you are interested in?

Inbound are links coming in to the site and outbound are links go out of the site. We get even more bothersome than that when we introduce, Crosslinking, Interlinking and Reciprocal Linking. [webmasterworld.com]
