    I've heard that getting Home page links hold more value than links from other kinds of pages.

    Is this correct?

    If so why. Is it a case of google knowing that the links are on a home page and thus thinks that they must be high valued links if hosted on a home page, and how does it know? Is it a case of home pages sometimes having better PR than other pages or is there more to it than that?

    Thanks for any help

    Yes, that is normal, home page is first page of site, so ti is normally to links from that page are more valuable .

    It depends on what sort of link you are looking for, the reason people say go for a homepage link is that a homepage often has more links to it and a higher PR,

    however some websites have internal pages with lots of links to them and a high PR too, so if the internal page is relevant, has a high PR and not many out bound links, it could be a better bet than the homepage...

    I've seen both of these cases. I was on a blog recently where the homepage was a PR3 and the page I was commenting on was a PR4.
