R. you are on a roll!
Did you unzip in place so that all the files (dir Extras, dir Legal Documents, links.txt etc) are on your domain? If so, just as a matter of neatness they should be saved off line but deleted from your domain. (apologizes if this is obvious to the casual observer. Just checking).
1. You can sprinkle links to your honeypot where ever you choose. Just on the half-dozen pages with the most bot traffic sounds like a plan. I have several domains I maintain. When I first set up honeypots I added links on several pages. Now every time I update a page or add a new one, adding or changing HP links is one of the last thing I do, along with changing the revised date.
2. Copy and paste will do. Several examples are given so that you can pick one, or more, that match you programing style and will fit into you pages, as is.
Before you change a suggested link be sure you understand what the "some what odd" code does. The link you used for example, normally an anchor would be
<a href="http://mydomain/myhoneypot.php"> fury </a>
The word "fury" would display on you web page for people to click on to go to myhoneypot.php. By making that a HTML comment <!-- fury --> nothing shows up on you page so a real person does not see anything to click on. However, a bot will see the link in the code and follow it (we hope). So you could change that comment to anything, it should not show anyway.
Other examples, use CSS to locate the link way off of the visible page so it can't be clicked on by real people.
2a. That is something else you might consider as you feel comfortable with some of the other links suggested. By using several different style of links you increase the possibility that a bad bot will not have been programed to skip over the link you use.
As you know this is an arms battle. As the good guys do something new, the bad guys get smarter and the new trick stops working, and the cycle starts all over again.
