    Hello blackhat community,

    I have very simple question - I am trying to build (semi) authority website and I read some articles here and I discovered in these articles that I have to rank my inner pages and then my domain get some authority. But now I have question - if I build some backlinks to my homepage (I am not targeting my homepage for any keyword) - it will help to my inner pages and is worth it ?

    Thanks :p

    I try to keep an equilibrium between direct liks to my homepage without anchor text, links to the inner pages with my keywords as anchor text and links with longs tail keywords/generic text as anchor text to both the home and inner pages.

    Does backlinks to your homepage help to rank your innerpage ? Or its better to spend resources to build backlinks only on innerpage ? Or you just build backlinks because of google natural linkbuilding profile ?

    The best advice on link building is to stay organic and natural. Inner pages usually cater long tail keywords and ranking those pages is easier than home page. I would suggest to do a 30/70 thing! 30 percent links going to home page with a mix of main keyword, keyword modifier and secondary keywords. Whereas 70 percent links should land back to inner pages with the same mix of keywords.

    I have tried doing SEO targetting the homepage using the main keywords majority of the link building rather than making backlinking for the inner page however the result isn't that good, for some reasons it damaged the ranking for several days. But when I tried working on the inner page more rather than concentrating the home page it seems that the ranking recovered and rank goes high and haven't yet encounter problems about ranking changes.
