I am reluctant to submit my site page until I know a little more. For instance, is there an optimum number of links from any one page. Can you have too many outgoing links from one page?
On the other hand, which SE's will spider an entire site from one or more site pages these days? Come to think of it is there an optimum number of pages for a high ranking site? Do big sites (1000's of pages) get pushed up or down the ranks?
outbound links: keep it under 75. It had been generally recognized that anything over 50-75 outbound is identified as a links page and tossed out.
Which ones are spidering in full? Right now that appears to be Google and Fast. Ink will over time, but they don't list the pages, so what there is little point.
hehe, very cute sage! :)
Here is how I am going to link my site of 100 pages:
My index page is my main page. At the bottom will be a
column of 100 links (the anchor of each link will be the
keyword each page is targeting.)
Each of these 100 pages (which each target a specific keyword)
will have a list at the bottom of all the links back to each page in the site. Instead of text links these will be transparent 1 X 1
clear pixels like this:
<a href='keyword.html'><img src='clrpxl.gif' height='1' width='1' border='0'></a>
I'm aiming for Yahoogle (or anything!)
Will this simple approach work?

Inktomi does keep these in their Web map though, which can affect relevance of associated pages. Conceivably, this might mean a higher ranking for the site as a whole.
From what I've heard Inktomi say publicly, it may also be that if you can get at least one link to a page from an external domain, that page might get listed.
Inktomi is very much about cost effectiveness... how many pages they can afford to return to their users, and how to decide which pages in their Web map are the most important to return.
