    Link value is just a fairly useless metric they made up. It is 100% about the PR of the page and the number of outgoing backlinks. Unless they have made an update to it, it does not factor in anything else.

      Okey thats good to know. So for example if a page with pr4 links to my site , how many outgoing links is considered good on that page? Ofcourse the less the better but say 20 outgoing links is that allright too pass some juice to your site?

    You already answered your own question: The lower the better.

    Even 100 OBL (outgoing links) on a page will still pass link juice to your website. But when you see 100 OBL on a page, it's not even worth the effort to place your link on that page.
