Hi

Does linking from every page to all relevant pages, increase the total pagerank of a site.

It seems that it would increase the number of pageviews per session.

Ask yourself another question.

"Does linking from every page to all relevant pages, increase the usefullness of the page to the reader?"

I think the answer to that must be yes. And therefore, you should do it.

I have the same basic navigation on each page, but I think having links to other pages within my content helps the most.

Internal Linking structure has a heavy weight on PR

But PR has no relevance to natural search - by that I am assuming you mean the famous toolbar? And not trustRank?

Link to relevant articles.

  • Europe
    -UK Articles
    Article 1
    Article 2...
    Article 300
    Link similar or recent articles together, throw the rest into a sitema- I mean Archive.

    -France
    Article 1
    Article 2...
    Article 300
    Link similar or recent articles together, throw the rest into a sitema- I mean Archive.

  • Asia
    Wash, rinse, repeat
  • Americas
    Wash, rinse, repeat
  • Business
    Wash, rinse, repeat
  • Arts
    Wash, rinse, repeat
  • Sports
    Wash, rinse, repeat

The benefit of the above is linking together topically relevant articles and forming clouds of relevance that reinforce each other. First off, this is useful to the users as it presents information that they may be interested in.

Secondly, search engines have traditionally understood information in terms of hiearachies and sets. Yes, there are many scoring and anti-spam variables playing a role in the overall ranking, but for the purposes of this discussion, I'm limiting my post to site architecture. Imo if it helps the search engines clarify sets of information, plus have the relevant articles reinforce each other in order to help the engines get a better idea of what the different sections of your site are about, then creating hubs and interlinking content within those hubs should be a good thing in terms of user experience and ranking. I don't care about PR distribution, it's the ranking power I'm more interested in.

Thanks for the posts

Does a CMS like Joomla produce automatically this related links on a new web page, based on the categorization given?
