Put alt tags on your images. This will help alot in Yahoo and a little in google.

two reasons...

1. - It helps with keyword density on your page. Keyword Density is the percentage of keywords in relation to other text on the page. Check it here: http://www.keyworddensity.com/

2. When the image is a link...like your menu buttons it helps identify what the link is about. Similar to anchor text but not as effective.

I just found something I never noticed before....mybe it's new. When you go and look at your cached version of your page in google....there's an otpion to view cached text only. My bet is that this is what the spider sees, not including links...as your content. You can then see the effect of the alt tags...your graphics and graphic links are replaced with the alt text.

only on images that are linked to something.
using alt tags on images that are not links doesnt help much if at all.

some people like stuffing them with keywords, but that could be seen as spamming. I personally try to put in text that describes what the link points to while still having one keyword in it towards the beginning of the tag.

Links to resources - I've been reading alot of speculation that goohoo are starting to look at pages named "links" and discounting them...you don't have to call it resources...but I wouldn't call it links...just to be safe.

Agreed. Too many people reported this happening, that it may well have merit.

A 301 direct may help your PR...although it may pass the link page penalty or whatever it is...if not a penalty.

I've started to use "companies" for my links page on newer site. Resources may not be such a good choice since that would be easy to filter for....usefulsites is good...as the name suggests ;)
