    Hi Friends,

    Some of my categories page rank to 2nd, 3rd page (without whole target keyword in the title) for about 1 month, but my homepage (with whole target keyword in the title) is no where :(

    What to do next? Should I build links to the categories url? Or anything else?

    Please help me :(


    Thanks a lot!!!

    Build links to categories url is not bad idea. But I didn't know how effective it is

    this is happening to me in some websites that i have been doing SEO, categories and posts are ranking but ive been doing all the SEO to the homepage but the hompegage is not ranking at all.
    did you build backlinks to the homepage only?

    I build both links to categories and homepage, but much more links to home page, I don't know why category page rank to 2nd page, so strange, the problem is now I can not rank the category page more to 1st page:(

    Well i am not 100% sure but sometimes it happens because of the interlinking, lets assume your homepage has an internal link to category with the same keyword you are trying to rank your homepage (it could be in the menu aswell).

    May be you've over-optimized your Homepage?
