Do buddylinks decrease site keyword theme density?

Thank you for your help to all of the little companies. In relationship to your newly described "site theme ranking" it appears that the buddy links pages dilute keyword ranking density. For my site I have .4mb of html code and buddy links additionally takes about .1 mb so my density will decrease by about 20% =.2 = 1-(4/5). If that is true, what is your opinion of the loss in density vs the gain in link popularity?----Gosh it is tough for a small company to keep up with the big companies.

The value of the linkage gain (popularity), far outweights any them dilution. We also have one leg up on everyone else because sites can place their own meta tags, titles, headers, and footers on the page. In your bl pages, use your sites theme words in tags and titles. This should offset any theme dilution. A menu to the rest of your site somewhere on the page also helps. I can not detect a theme dilution here at sew due to buddy links at all. The link gain is certainly helping on Google and Inktomi.

Thank you to every for all the kind comments about that article (about 20).

Thanks Brett for reassuring me of the links popularity importance. I am also planning to join the Hallway Links Cooperative at http://www.scottishtours.com/ to get even more reciprocal links.
