text links
From Peter Rotgers at Dating World on 1 March '00

I somewhere read the following text:

* The other part of this tip is to include plenty of regular text
links. Search engine robots cannot read or follow the links within
images. If you have a menu made out of images you are leaving
the robot with no place to go. The search engine robots do not
like to just list your home page. They want to dive into your web
site and explore all of your pages. They do this because they
know the most relevant information may not be contained on your
front page. They follow the text links on your page and then go
to the linked page and start to spider those pages too. You
Must Have Text Links. If you leave the search engine's robot
with no place to link to it will stop. *

Is this true? Or is it total nonsense? Or did I misunderstand
the message??

Thanks in advance for any comments!
