Mine are linked back, but it's through a graphic with the alt text of "home"
Is that good enough? Or should it be through a text link?

Now, since the image contains the word "home" that is a sufficient alt attribute, but you can get further benefit out of it as Jill mentioned. However, I'd say the word "home" has to be in there, no matter what else you use, so something like "weight loss hypnotism home" or "home: weight loss hypnotism" might work for you.

Is that true or is it another hearsay like the first words in your title tag getting more weight. Just wondering

From the SEO side of things a site's home page is often its most important page since it tends to garner the most incoming links from other pages. So if you can link back to it in a sensible way (for users) that also includes your most prized keyword phrase(s) it can have in impact in what the engines think your home page is all about. There are lots more bits that go into it (anchor text from incoming links from other sites, the copy, what you emphasize on the page, etc, etc) but making smart use of alt text in image links can certainly have a positive effect.

My clients website is made up of categorical listings so we always have the categories on the side which links back to the homepage. I was wondering if those categorical links don't get as much weight so should I put another link in the content of the site??
THANKS for the help!

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I did have the "home" in the alt text, but not on the home page itself, on all of the other pages. I'm going to add the title of the home page to the alt text for the home graphic on all of my other pages. I like the idea of having weight loss hypnosis | stop smoking hypnosis home on another 175 links!

IMO, that's too much and too spammy.
If you're going to do this it needs to be just a very short phrase and that's it. (Again, imo.)
