An outbound link is one which points from one (or more) of your web pages to a piece of content that is on a different website.
These outbound links are used so that people can easily find their way to important nuggets of information on other parts of the internet.
Because we typically only link to sites we can trust, when we link to another website we are effectively telling Google to trust that site too.
