Keep your website shallow!

Here's a funny fact. Search engines don't like searching deeply through your site. Ideally every page on your site should be accessible within 2-3 clicks from you home page. This is also true for the visitors visiting your site.

If you have a page that's only accessible by clicking through 5 other pages, you're site isn't optimized and you should create links on other pages to prevent this.

One way to do this also helps you out by making your site easier to crawl. By creating text links on the bottom of your site you can increase a search engines ability to jump around your site. You will also increase your rankings if the text includes some of your keywords. Many of you use images for buttons to navigate your website, but images are bad for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so you need to make up for it.

Often times these links will mirror the buttons you have at the top of the site, that's ok. You should also add other links as well that will help to connect your site better.

Here's a tool that shows you a graphical map of your site, it's pretty cool. Doesn't directly help you as it shows more than just links, but it shows those as well. Check it out: http://www.aharef.info/static/htmlgraph/ and type in your website address.
