I'm relatively new to this SEO malarkey, so please bear with me...

On my website ( ~2,000 pages) I have 22 principal pages (homepage + 21 product pages).

* For optimum internal linking, within the body of each of those 22 pages I plan to place 22 links, ie, links to each of the principal pages using (varying) optimised anchor text.

* Should I go a step further and have sitewide footer links (on all my ~2,000 pages) to each of the 22 product pages - or is this considered spammy by Google? I've heard apocryphal tales of sites being penalised for this.

Thanks in advance for your replies

Since links in the footer are probably going to look messy and not be very usable or all that visible to the people who visit your site, it likely doesn't make sense to have them there.

Think about what makes your site better for your users (not worse) and you'll have a clearer idea of what is right/wrong to do in terms of your internal linking.
