    Hi,

    I just want to ask this as I'm a little uncertain whether or not I'm doing this correct.

    I under stand my sites link network to look something like this;


    SITES HOME <== SITES INTERNAL DEEP <== Tier 1 Backlinks <== Tier 2 backlinks <==Tier 3 backlinks so on and so on

    My question is about the link between my moneysites deep pages linking to my sites home page.

    I have an anchor text link (targeting my main keyword phrase) in the footer of my site which is a site wide link (right?). Is this the right link to have to establish a link from every deep page on my site to my sites home page to help pass the link juice from my backlinks going to my to my internal deep pages to my home page to help increase its page rank?

    I hope that makes sense.

    This has been bugging me recently as I thought I was doing things right but my site has been stuck on PR2 for the last 4 months.

    Links in the footer are valued less, but anyway I assume you have a link back to your homepage in your navigation. That's the one that actually counts.

    The theme I'm using doesn't appear to have an option to add a navigation. Can I create one manually or add the links to the sidebar also?

    It appears you are using Wordpress.

    If your theme does not have a navigation bar you can make your main page, or home page, a sticky page and that will place it at the top in your right sidebar (assuming you have a right sidebar) along with your about, privacy, and contact pages.

    Which theme are you using?
