    Out of that list probably two are accurate, the rest are useless and totally false information.

    Second opinion:

    1. "Outbound links improve your ranking". (scroll down to "page attributes")

    3.
    .edu and .gov sites often have quite some PR, which is good for backlinks.

    With my limited experience with SEO, I do think outgoing links can be quite effective. Some time ago I made a post with nothing but a few lines, several quotes from good sites with a link to go with it. Despite the many copy pasting and little unique content, my page ranks pretty well for several keyword combinations.

    Maybe it's the links, maybe it's luck, who will tell?

    Ok...


    myth:

    1 A popular belief or story that has become associated with a person, institution, or occurrence, especially one considered to illustrate a cultural ideal: a star whose fame turned her into a myth; the pioneer myth of suburbia.

    2 A fiction or half-truth, especially one that forms part of an ideology.
