Carry it to the degree that every page has at least 3 links coming into it from other parts of your site. One links 'gets you in the door', two links should make you stick, and third link should give it some measure of relavance.
I don't think AV is (or has been) reading graphic links except to spider - even then it is rare.
I'm just linking like content where ever possible.

Do these links have to be full text. What I mean is can I do this. Use a link <a href="http://www.ecommerce-packages.com/link3.html">.</a>
Thereby not messing up my page design.I will just put these three dots on the bottom of the page making sure to use a different color from the background. Thanks.

With Link text being so important anymore, I think it is critical to use words in links. Unless you are just trying to get a spider to follow a trail, I'd use full words. You want that 'link text' to give the spider an idea of what the page it is point to is about.

How about adding a title tag to the invisible link?
<A HREF="http://yourdomain.com/yourpage.html" TITLE="keyword"></A>
Any experience with that yet?

If your link is like the following <a href="http://www.bargaindevil.com/search-engine-positioning-av.html">.</a> wont the spiders be able to determine it is about "search engine positioning" if the subject is in the url? Thanks.

Depends on the se mood cyberbear. They increase/decrease the value placed on filenames with the weather. Filenames and paths have become the new keyword metatags in some sense. Se's have caught on of course.
With it laying there naked within the link text, you know they are going to atleast consider it.
Ralph, what have you seen with link "title" text? I've tried it, but I can't pinpoint anything that would suggest it is a winner of a trick.

Nothing conclusive yet, but there's a wee chance it might just tie in ever so well with the theme algo ...
