    Is it best to create backlinks pointing to a sites home page or inner pages? Well specifically Id like to know about blogger blogs, should I create backlinks to XXXXXX.blogspot.com or the individual inner posts ? I'm creating posts that are built around individual keywords that I'm each trying to rank (not just one main keyword) so I would think I should build backlinks pointing to each post page not the home page right?

    You should point backlinks to the page you want to get ranked.

    Don't spam your money site, use tiers.

    In another words, make quality backlinks for your money site and than spam those backlinks with another backlinks.

    If you are trying to rank each post, then yea post backlinks to the inner post. Try to also point some backlinks to the homepage to spread them out, and make it look real. Good luck :)

    When it comes to backlinks, diversity in all things seems to be the received wisdom. So when you are placing backlinks you place them as far, as wide and as diverse as you can think of. When it comes to where they point, spreading it out a bit will also help. It looks more organic and it also strengthens the traffic into your site; when people land on one page they'll visit others within the same site.

    Yep, best to mix it up. But yeah, pointing to a certain page will increase the rank of that page, just don't post 10 000 links to 1 url and not to the others

    The answer is both. Because 1. You want ALL your pages to rank, and 2. It's a serious red flag and totally unnatural link pattern when thousands of backlinks go to the home page, and none to the posts.

    mix it up and maintain natural profile. If your home page has 99% of links - it just not natural

    if you are creating links between home page and inner page,, make sure that you are using some useful links, dont built too many unnecessary links,, in case of two many links,, make some as no follow

    To what I have seen, pointing backlinks to the money site is enough to get your subpages ranked. This mightn't be a good technique in long run. Try to build at least 20-40 good links to your pages as well..Rest, you can send it to your money site.

    Now it's very important to link to inner pages in my opinion- it's much more natural.

    I'm trying now to focus on ranking many pages and not just homepage - otherwise it will stick out like a saw thumb :)

    The bulk of your backlinks should go to the main xxxx.blogspot.com sub domain. It is good to have some backlinks to inner pages as well but a lot of that link juice from the main page is going to trickle down to the inner pages.

    This is just the inverse question. If I have my Tier 1 set up and say some of those sites have 10-15 pages each. How or what would be a good linking strategy to my money site inner pages. Should page 2 (Tier 1 site) link to an inner page and then page 3 links to another inner page and so on? I have never really seen any good info on this. Secondly wouldn't it look unnatural to SE's if every page of a website has a link back to the money site? Does anyone know what is best practice for this post P/P

    You should have different pages that you'd like to rank for different keywords so yes, spread your backlinks across any page you'd like ranked.

    always concentrate by creating backlinks for homepages, and create some diversified backlinks to inner pages to get more authority. Use variety of keywords to safe from updates

    I understand you want diversification but still... the question is more about the site linking back to yours, that you control on tier 1, should every page have a link back to one of your inner pages or what is best practice on this?

    And what would be the most effective way (for conversions) to move the visitors arriving at the inner pages to the money page? Adding a banners at top and button of the pages??
