When building links to get a fast crawl, is it best to have several ways into the site pointing to different subpages?

I have been experimenting a bit, and the absolutely best way to get a good crawl into a new site is to spend a few bucks on adwords and get linked to the homepage on at least 5 highPR sites. This way, it will only take 5-6 days to get the first pages indexed. However, should I quickly point the incomming traffic to subpages related to the site where the link comes from to get subpages crawl faster, after the first index?

It seems that googlebot comes really fast the first time, but then waits a while before it adds new content into their index. I want to build links to subpages, but would this speed up the crawling process?

What do you think.

Don't know if this helps but when I get requests for links (and agree them) I always ask for a link back to a deep level page. I believe that this improves the access and spidering of the whole site in the end.

And don't forget that human visitors will come into a relevent page.
