Have you found that having a really organized Root Page is helpful? At first I didn't think it was because I figured users would be coming in from the SE's to specific areas.. but now I'm rethinking that.

Home page is a navigation tool, but its also a critical sales tool. Home page helps to push sales of products that are linked from the home page. I track sales by adding a?hp to the end the URL which is then passed on to my shopping cart.

good tip sun818

IMHO the home page should always be well organized and deliver a strong message about who you are and what you do. Even if people come in on a sub-page, they're likely to visit the home page to get a sense of who they're dealing with.
