    I started ranking a site by blasting all the page with back links.. the inner page is ranked higher than my home page for my KW, should I focus building links to my home page now or the inner page?

    It really depends on how your site is setup. Are you building your site on one keyword or multiple keywords. I have a lot of sites where the inner pages rank higher than the main page because the inner pages are optimized for specific keywords and the main page is not.

    Really not surprising then that your inner pages would rank higher than your main page for your particular search terms then. Why do you think this is a problem? Think about when you do a search and find Yahoo or wikepedia in the results. It is not the home page that is ranked but the optimized inner page that is targeted for that particular keyword. That is how it is supposed to work, Google ranks pages not sites.

    Hi, Volund is right, in all the sites that i have each inner page ranks better for its particular keyword then the homepage because i optimize each one with good onpage/ofpage seo related to that keyword, and that's how it's supposed to work.
