First, glad we could help you out.
Second, I got what you were saying about where the links were and where they were pointing, but it sounded like you didn't understand part of what I was saying and I also really (mostly) wanted to make sure you (and future readers - tons of people read here, even if they don't post or post often) understood why it might seem like there are differing positions on (or statements about) things different places that seem to contradict each other at times, but may actually be correct and non-contradictory or easily misunderstood.
The wording of things is really an important aspect of understanding SEO and search engines, exactly because of the subtle wording difference changing the statement I edited above about 404 errors from true to false ... It's also one of the most difficult things for most people to get, because they aren't used to the level of 'exactness' necessary to describe a situation or how to fix something and a couple of words can make a huge difference in what someone says or how a situation is assessed.
As far as speeding up crawl rate goes, I'd try and get links, deep ones from quality sources...
* I actually started paying close attention to the wording of things way back when GoogleGuy used to post here, because he called what we lightly refer to as 'the algo' a 'heuristic' and as soon as he did, a bunch of bells and whistles went off in my head, because there's a difference in the two and we loosely call what Google, Bing, etc. use an 'algo', but it's technically a heuristic and there's a difference in the type of results (answers) each generates.
