ddddd,

In terms of Search Engine Marketing, inbound and outbound links are broken down into many categories.  Here are four of the key ones related to your question.

Internal Inbound Links –  An internal inbound link is a link from another page within your site to your page.

External Inbound Links – An external inbound link is a link from another page outside your site/network to your page

Internal Outbound Links (or internal links) – An internal outbound link (or internal link) is a link on your page to another page within your site/network.

External Outbound Links (or external links) – An external outbound link (or external link) is a link on your page to another page outside your site/network.

There are a lot of different reasons to manage, track and monitor these breakdowns, so if you have more questions about specific topics related to measuring value of links, management or anything else, feel free to post new questions!  

Good luck with your effort.

    Logically Inbound links also known as internal links are the links of the website itself and Outbound links also called external links are the links of the external website to your website.

    Inbound links:

    "Inbound links or commonly known as “backlinks” are the links pointing to your site and search engines like Google like it when you have thousands of links pointing to your site but sometimes Google penalizes you for it too if you have poor quality and irrelevant backlinks pointing to your site. Google only likes it when relevant links point to your site but as you have no control over them you cannot control which sites point to your site. There are more chances that those links will be “dofollow” and you will get some free and targeted traffic to your site. Inbound links that are “dofollow” also increase your website’s PR and SERPs and are considered healthy for any blog or website.

    Outbound links:

    Outbound links are the links pointing to other websites from your website and you have more control over these links. People have different views about outbound links and many say that it is against the SEO rules and search engines can penalize you for doing this. You should link to relevant content if it gives more information to your readers. Bloggers are of the view that you lose traffic when you put outbound links in your posts but if you share useful resources then chances are that your readers will stick to your blog and will come back in search of more useful resources. But if you do put outbound links in your posts then make sure they are pointing to relevant, original and informative content".
