I'm going to get 8,10 good links and I'm figuring out which way using them.

I have this structure:

home
------pag1
----------pag1/subpage1
----------pag1/subpage2
----------pag1/subpage3
------pag2
----------pag2/subpage1
----------pag2/subpage2
----------pag2/subpage3

Assuming that some of these pages are really important to optimize, is it better to point ALL links to Homepage and wait (and hope) link juice to be spread on all pages OR to point links to important pages only? OR a mixed way of the above?

Any help best appreciated.

Best regards.

It is always better to look as natural as possible. IMO you should spread the IBL's in the most important part of your website, not just the home page. Also I would add those links slowly, definately not all at once.

In my opinion my method is

Homepage
- Category A
---- Subject A.1
---- Subject A.2
---- Subject A.3
---- Subject A.4
- Category B
---- Subject B.1
---- Subject B.2
---- Subject B.3
- Category C
---- Subject C.1
---- Subject C.2
- Category D
---- Subject D.1

In that respect Google indexes the homepage, and the links A-D, on each link page contains another place google may go.

Whilst keeping the links A-D at the top of the page, google once finished A can see B, and C and so on.

Effectively within a week or so you're indexing all of your subject pages.

Worked for me.

Google mentions in their guidelines to build a sitemap page for your vistors, using this kind of structure would be very interesting from a sitemap view, where the user can actualy identify and understand the structure of your site, now google won't have a choice but to look at those pages :)
