Most links would point at the index and less or none to the main. So, if you are trying to get hits to www.yourdomain.com/main.html for certian keywords will you get penalized because of the lack of links?
I've also heard the certian search engines (Altavista) favor root domains. Any thoughts on that?

My gut tells me that the stronger each string of the web is, the stronger the site as a whole becomes. I think itís better to have shorter, tighter, strings and more of them, twinning together than longer weakened strings.
so if you have the index which has X links pointing directly to it..then you have Y links pointing to subpage 1, Z to subpage 2, etc.
When ranking a page, does the engine add X + Y + Z ? or maybe it gives more points to the # of links pointing to the page it is ranking, but also links pointing to each other page are accounted for but with less weight?
someone please help me out on this one!
2_M - I think everyone would KILL for this much detail about how the SEs work! I expect that level of detail is going to be limited to employees. And it's gonna vary from engine to engine. Someone may have reverse engineered one or two of the engines to this level but I'd be surprised!
