On another popular SEO forum I have seen many posts indicating that outbound links increase your SERPs and the 'Authority' of your site, yet I got the feeling from HR experts this isn't the case.
here is an example of what the other forum is saying
So it definitely does help to link out. The problem of course is that you don't really want to be a hub. It's no use if your visitor gets in, and gets out without doing what you hope them to do. So you need to choose your outgoing links carefully. And it's also not always the best choice to link out to gain positions in the SERPs.

Do you guys agree with this logic?
