Keyphrase textual links are better than graphic links. As far as Google is
concened, there doesn't seem to be an advantage between getting an internal
or an external links. The advantages appear to come from relevancy and the
linking page's own prominence.

If you examine the Baclinks from a web page, the results show both internal
and external links in what appears to be in order of weight. What I mean to
say is that the first link can be from an external source, the second and
third internal, the fourth and fifth external ...

Added value seems a good rule to me.

The notion that the home page is somehow different or more important than
other pages can be misleading.  The home page is just one of many pages on
the site and happens to be the one pulled if someone uses the url without a
complete file address.  Web sites work quite happily with multiple important
pages.   Which pages are the most important depends on their content and
usefulness.  If any important page has a link from it that helps visitors
get supplementary information that they are likely to be seeking, then that
link is to be valued or weighted highly.  Any link that leads to rubbish or
spam has a negative weighting.

Best regards, Eric.

Yes, because it is related to good context. Dissociate yourself from
irrelevant links or badly-behaved site.

Well said. The front page is crawled more often only if it is cited more
often [1].  In many cases, it is indeed the case. In many other cases, the
front page is also more dynamic, i.e. it serves fresh content such as news.
This motivates more crawling. Yet, you should judge the front page as if it
was just an ordinary page. In practice, however, you will find that its
impact (judged by number of page views, inbound links) is higher. It's an
observation rather than a rule.
