    Internal linking

    I've read the article by Chris on internal links and I have a mesh linking structure on my site. All the pages have now PR5 so I guess it's working.

    But when I look at the back links for any given page I see that only a few pages from my site are indexed as links. Shouldn't all the pages be indexed for having links to any given page as all the pages have PR5? I've looked at back links for some sites and I see almost all their pages that link to a given page in their backlinks. So my question is am I doing something wrong?

    If you are refering to a MESH as where every page links to every other page, then the backlinks should show up...

    What site are you refering to?

    You need to tell Google to display all links, even if their similar. There is a link at the bottom of your search results to display "all results."

    It can take time for Google to list all your backlinks!

    That was it. Thanks Chris. Is it only because the pages are similar they're not shown or am I missing something?

    Yes... it is just that they are similar.

    Does this have any effect on PR?

    Would it improve my keyword ranking to put a link to my homepage on every page thats says 'Free Online Games'... I have one saying home, but that won't improve my rank for keywords...
