A scale-free network is typically one which has been built by a principle where links are added randomly between nodes, but the probability of a node being linked is proportional to the number of links it already has. Hence, positive feedback quickly ensures that those that start to gain more links gain even more.

Scale-free networks are also SmallWorlds in the proper use of the terminology.
