You probably have already heard about this strategy; that articles are likely to be more valued by Google’s algorithms if the algorithm discovers outgoing links to other sites with well establish repute.
Some colleagues of mine have been toying around with the idea of using automation to auto suggest related authority link from sites like nytimes.com, mashable.com, reuters.com, tumblr, google+, etc. These links would be embedded into insert paragraphs or listed bullet style at the bottom of the post.
Well while we were over there strategizing, a fellow programmer friend, Matt Lewis, was already developing the concept and has now released it in a new plugin for the public.Matt Lewis is known by his newsletter service as Maximizer Matt and he helped create the PingbackOptmizier that auto generates RSS Feeds of your pingbacks and submits them to aggregation directories to help build backlink power for your backlinks. It is an ingenious little plugin!
So if you are interested in investigating this technique then head over to the WSO page and give it a look.
