Comment on PageRank Sculpting by SEO Dave.
BTW you can link from all pages except the main page by surrounding your links with some blogger code.
Been a while since I used Blogger, but recall to only link (or any content) from the home page use
<MainPage>What you want only on main</MainPage>
I think to only have on archive pages was something like
<ArchivePage>Only on archive pages</ArchivePage>
I’m sure if you do a few Google searches you can find the exact code.
