I have a professional web site, and will soon have a personal home page as

A separate site.
On a different server.

I will have a link from my personal page to my professional site. I'm
still undecided about linking from my professional site to my personal
page. If I do, it will be buried deeply, at least one layer below my
resume'. I'm betting most hiring managers and prospecitive clients won't
have time to burrow past the professional stuff. Those that do will most
likely be the more experienced web surfers, who are familiar with the type
of trash <deleteword> drivel <deleteword> irrelevant content that infests
many personal web sites.
