    One problem I'm trying to figure out:

    The website consists of a messageboard and a homepage.

    The homepage is a PR4. Now, all the pages on my website you can access from the navbar are ranked as PR3s.

    However, all the pages you get to from other links on my PR4 homepage that aren't on the navbar have Zero pagerank.

    I have only come to one of three conclusions as to why this is.

    1. Google really likes Navbar links
    2. The spiders aren't able to get past the navbar to the rest of my homepage links; the Navbar is probably the first thing the spiders come to
    3. Since the Navbar appears on each of the thousands of pages of the website, the links get higher ranking, whereas all the other homepage links only appear on the homepage.

    I'd like to hear everyone else's opinion on this. I just added one more link to my Navbar today, so the page that link leads to doesn't have a higher PR yet.



    I would love other SEO and non-SEO feedback! I know the board is bland looking, haven't had time for design.

    Design Review:
    I think it looks like another typical template... maybe get one designed? Or even change the template (that's not blue, it's way too typical) and place it with a custom header design + logo design. Would work better!

    I'm not an SEO expert so maybe someone else can help you w/ that ;)

    Looks like a default forum template to be honest with you. =\

    The look of the forum I know and am OK with that. I'm about to upload a ton of new skins in two weeks when I have more time. Other than the general look of the forum is there anything else?
