Thanks for the reply.
Here are some more specific details about the home page.
It features the 10 latest new topics in full. These change frequently, so each one would be on the homepage for no more than a couple of hours.
There are 50 links (in total) to latest topics (titles only) in the main cateogories.
There are around 30 links to internal pages via the nav system.
The are 5 external links (4 of which are no-follow), plus links to our facebook and twitter pages.
On looking at the incoming links for external sites, it's pretty much an even split with 50% coming direct to the homepage and 50% coming to inner pages.
Content wise, we have circa 80,000 posts in 9,000 threads in the main forum, some other non-forum sections of the site which total around 2,000 pages.
In the serps, our homepage will usually be in position 1-4 depending on the query, the most relevent page will usually be around position 20+ in the same result set.
Hope this is some help.
