Hi

I've had my site up for a while, the home page is the standard 'home' text link with all my other pages linking to it.

My question is: could i simply change the 'home' to the main keyword for my site to help improve SEO?

so instead of 'home' on each page it would be 'bluewidget' that linked to the home page?

Sure, if you think it doesn't confuse the user, or perhaps even enhances their understanding of your site structure, go for it.

A related thread [webmasterworld.com] is being discussed currently, featured on the home page.

So you have something like

home | about | contact | etc.

and you want to do

blue widget | about | contact | etc.

I follow a link expecting to see blue widget, and am returned to the home page. Which am I, angry or confused? :-)

Methinks your purpose, both in respect to SEO and user response, would be better served by

home | about | contact | blue widget | etc.

and have it link to a page that discusses blue widget in depth, which would naturally contain relevant keywords. By "naturally" I mean not keyword stuffed, but that the term comes up frequently in natural discussion of the page topic that is interesting to the user.
