    I have a one week old site.
    when I google my keyword, a subpage (EMD.org/EMD.html) shows up on page 4, but homepage is nowhere to be found. why?

    1 week old? Give it some time. I had a disclaimer page ranking #2 for main keyword on a 2 week old site, and the main page was on page 8.

    Give it time and it should fix itself, if not build some manual links/web 2.0's to the main site.

    Happened to me too, made a thread about it as well. Google eventually put my site page one like a week or two later

    This can be annoying. Most of the time it clears up on it's own. Although I have 1 site that has been swapping back and forth between the homepage and subpage for months. The subpage has limited content and not a lot of backlinks but for some reason google likes to rank that page for my main keywords. I had another site that this happened on and it bounced back and forth for 4 months before finally ranking the homepage.

    I had the same thing with a week old site...My EMD.com/info page was higher than my emd.com page so I went in to one of the blog posts on the /info page created a linkback to the homepage with the emd KW as anchor text and the next day the homepage is now the one ranking.

    Try internal linking link every post to the main page with the right anchor text.

    How many websites have you built in the past ? if you have some experience you will for sure know that it's normal for new websites, keep building backlinks then wait and see.

    I've had this happen with one of my micro niche sites before. It fixed up after a little while though.
