deadsea: If you are dealing with user generated content in large volumes you will have to separate your good content from your bad content. If you highlight all your content, even the poor quality stuff, you won't have a very compelling site. Wikipedia spends a lot of effort interlinking their articles such that every good article has many links from other articles. Stack overflow has a robust voting system such that important questions filter up to the top.
That last point seems pretty central to me (especially since - coming to some sort of crowdsourced determination of the best content (which of course, only works when the content is worthwhile and the product is engaging, as tedster pointed out).
Andy Langton: As long as internal link structure is reasonable, this can result in incredible amounts of crawler activity, and extensive coverage of pages.
I feel as though I frequently struggle with this concept. What would constitute an "unreasonable" internal link structure?
Thanks for all the help, guys! My career would look very different if not for the great folks here.
