    Anyone have an idea why http://mysite.com/samplepage which is a blank article, is ranking higher than my main page with 4 articles all optimized?

    No idea, not really enough information to reply to. Give us more info, what sort of site is it, is it a blog? what sort of script are you using, wordpres, how old, do share more info, etc....

    Mine did this sometimes as well. Did you redirect the 404 to your main page or another page on your site?

    So, some page ranks about 612, ahead of some other shitty page which ranks about 614, for some obscure keyword combo?
