Are we talking about the front page of Johns Hopkins Medical School under "useful resources" (I'm making this up)? Or about faculty members' personal pages where the syllabus for Linguistics 237 is all mixed up with photographs from your vacation, the latest draft of your CV, an article you're kinda pleased with and, oh yes, here are some web sites I liked in 2004 but I haven't bothered to check the links since then.
I don't disdain the personal pages that have been around for 10 years. Those types of pages aren't thin inner pages like on yours and my website. They're PR4 and PR5 authority pages with their own set of authority backlinks.
