    Hi,

    I'm having the following problem: When I search for my domain name, I get a category page in Google and an article post above my homepage. I have tons of internal links towards the homepage and some linkbuilding also. What could be the problem? Thanks.

    How old is your Site ?

    This should not be a Big Concern But Still if your site is new then it may take time for things to Settle down.

    It is a new site, 3 months old. Also, is there a time frame regarding how long it takes for backlinks to increase my rankings? Thanks a lot

    If content is much better for desired keyword on the category than on homepage, you can guess why. Also, it's a new site, give it some time.
