I’m a bad tribe member.

I’m no SEO expert, so I may have a misunderstanding of how these things work, but aren’t we diluting our power by linking to a bunch of different pages rather than all linking to the same page? Let me know in the comments.
To be fair, I probably fell victim to the 140 character communication bug. I could have been more clear about my concerns so my question could not have been taken to mean I don’t at all understand the concept that links = SEO.

Update: I’ve decided to be a good doobie and play along, but on my own terms. In the right rail, you’ll notice the PromoteJS badge. What I did was collect all of the links they offer up and set it up to randomly serve a different one with each page view. (I also standardized on the smaller of the 2 images and deleted the trailing slash on the IMG tags. I don’t do XHTML.) It’s a simple hack and you’re welcome to use it. [source]
