Site Architecture - Internal Linking - Open Questions

List of Questions

- Best practice on what to do with home page links to admin pages such as privacy policy? Can they be made non followable for spiders? Should I add internal links to my privacy policy? Should I add as many as possible or just to key pages?

Are non-spiderable internal or external links a legit useful tool? Search engine robots can only follow generic HTML href links, meaning Flash links, JavaScript links, dropdown menus and submit buttons will all be inaccessible to robots. etc

Is there an optimal number of internal links per page? If I have 50 pages, should each page link to all 50?

Do server side includes work well as a tool or do they have any negative SEO impact? This could be from delay or worse, being treated as frames.
