Hi William
Sounds like you get the Webposition newsletter. You're not the only one to
get curious/baffled about their piece on 'hallway' pages. If you have spider
friendly navigation on your homepage that points to important pages then you
already have a 'hallway' for spiders. The tactic seems tailored for Excite
which steadfastly favours homepages and indexes whatever it likes rather
than what you ask it to, goodness knows where they got the higher rank idea

Danny Sullivan made comment on this on the I-Search mailing list recently -
you can find his response here, its the last post:
