    So one question I wanted to ask (more I wanted anyone's view is on this)
    I have 100's of pages on one of my project and the competition is getting pretty hard.

    I was thinking of changing my strategy to build links mainly to the homepage instead
    of so many inner pages.

    Will building links to the homepage automatically boost all my inner pages, (its the same niche)
    Anyone here can jump in on this from their experience.
    I am more of a "building links to the inner pages kind of a guy"
    but clearly with one of my project it is not quiet worth building each inner page

    What are the pros and cons of building and working more on the homepage.
    1. I think I know one that I will have to be a lot more safer with my link building strategy
    since the homepage is more sensitive ?

    Would Love to hear more opinions

    You should always link to both - homepage and inner pages. Not only that but you should also make sure that you do diverse anchors and links (not just money keywords but generics as well as some raw URLs; not just from web 2.0 properties or PBN links but put some directory links, press releases, PBNs, etc ...).

    Making the link only for home page would not we a good idea as you can not target all the keywords through home page and it is not possible to optimise the home page for to many keywords therefore it is good to target some main keywords from home page and rest of the keywords from inner pages and build the links accordingly.

    If you will use different anchors for examples anchor1, anchor2, anchor3 and so for only home page then your home page will not get any rank for any of the anchor as google bot will confused from to many anchors for the same page so better to stick with 3-5 keywords for home page and tager rest of the keywords from different pages.

    I hope my answer will resolve your confusion.

    Have a nice day.

    The best would be to built links for both - homepage and inner pages.

    Currently I've noticed that pages with few links are ranking for my keywords. Their homepage is strong with 100+ RD, but inner pages that rank have like 2-3 RD to them. So they build authority for their brand first and ranking inner pages becomes much easier.
