Get more links for your links page.

Neil, my guess is that the links page is not one click away from the homepage, in which case it would more than likely be PR4. You can apportion PR through your site to a degree through its linking structure.

How many clicks does it take to get to that page from your PR5 page?

Hi Marcia

the links page is just one click from all the sites pages including the home page

it does have a lot of banners on it , does the page load time matter i was thinking of me be making it in to 2 or 3 pages?

seindal we have many links incoming ( to the home page )includng some 30 pr 7 links just payed for with banner adds all with key word text links under the banners

Neil,

For the site in your profile the PR of the main page is 5 and that of the links page is 4, as one might expect given the site's structure.

How about putting the site with the problem in your profile?

Even though your links are to pages within your site, there is far too many links to different pages from your home page. Your PR is just getting divided into all little sections for each page.

Your best bet would be to link to perhaps 10 main pages from your home page.

Neil,

As dazz says, you have too many links off your front page, so all internal pages have low PR.

You have a finite amount of PR to share among your internal pages. Sharing equally means that none get any meaningful amount of it. You probably want to group your pages into a few sections, with links from the front page to the section main pages, and then links from each section main page to the constituent subpages.

Hmm ... doing a few Google searches for your main products you seem to be doing quite well on the internal pages in spite of their low PR. If it ain't broke ...

Sorry to ask in the middle of a thread but this is hinged off of the main question...

What if you have say three links from your index page to one page, among others of course. Would the three links dilute PR or count in PR being given away to only one page?

Thanks All

Mohamed i reson i put all the text links on every page

1, they are all keyword links

2, the text links at the top and bottom off the page are the same links

as you say they do work well on most search engs, but if i remove the links will the search engs still see all the site? goolge seams to like it as it comes back day affter day refreshing both the index page and a lot of the rest . does the pr on the rest of the pages matter , all i wanted was to get the pr better on the links page for all the links that link back to us
