Div box Vs Sitmap.xml

I have been told that div boxes are great way of increasing your ranking if used in the correct way. I was advised to create a links on the div box to every page in my site using relevant search terms as descriptions. One of the biggest advantages being the home page already has a good page rank.

My question is.......... does adding the sitemap.xml to the front page simply do the same job ?

I dont think it's true that div boxes increase your ranking.

The idea of the div box was to pass the high page rank of the home page directly to the everypage in the site. Which in theory sounds like a sensible idea ? Agree /Disagree

P.S A friend told me.

"pass the high page rank of the home page" is good but Why DIV ?

Any examples?

Because I was told with a div its just one hop to get to the next page. Someone else told me the sitemap.xml does the same job but I would expect this to be 2 hops ??

Agree/Disagree - Also can you suggest any alternative methods ?

No thats not true i disagree , it wont help you in rankking.
Add a sitemap(not xml but page with your links) if you havent done so.
Which is your site ?
You wanna increase rank or PageRank - they both are different.

Agree they are both different but are you saying a higher page rank does not get you a better ranking ?
I also thought that google would also like the fact it could access every page on your website from the home page, simple navigation putting a tick in the google box.

Combining that with some good strong competetive keywords for entries in the div box surely this has got to help ranking and do a better job that the sitemap.
