    Hey guys, basically I started creating an authority site in a super competitive niche with over 165,000,000 results. Needless to say when I create articles I actually attempt to rank for medium or higher side of easy to rank keywords. The only link building I have done is on my homepage, that being said when I post articles directed towards lower level keywords they tend to index themselves and after a few days rank within the top 30 google results for my sought after keywords.

    I assume this is because of the backlinks I have pointing to my homepage which then provide link juice to these articles ? If I wanted to rank higher for the keywords on my articles should I build backlinks directly to specific articles or to my homepage? If I link them to my homepage will this have more of an effect on articles I post being more long term rather than building links directly to each and every article as that could be a tedious process.

    This is my first time attempting to rank a website so any help is appreciated!

    You will need very good backlinks if you want to rank in a competitive niche. Earn them naturally through creating excellent quality content.

    you've answered your own question....build backlinks directly to specific pages of your website. Do also guest posting and forum posting to help rank your site to0;)

    If your website keep get updated with new content, then just use social signals for your inner page articles and add quality links along with social signals. If your website just has few articles, then optimize each of them separately.
