How a link is valuated?
There are three factors to it:
There is much to write about it but my concern is why will Google give value to a link coming from a old page.
Let me give an example,
Most of us with say that Google will give value to XYZ.com/123.html more than XYZ.com/456.html, but WHY?
Isn't it more natural to add links while creating a page than adding links after 4 years? If Google hasn't done it so far, its time they check people who are editing their articles/pages to add links after X days.
If I was a Google engineer I would have given more value to XYZ.com/456.html than XYZ.com/123.html.
What do you say?

New page would itself required to be evaluated by google 1st and then only we come to the question how much value it would add to the outgoing links.
