    Hello

    I would like my websites SEO done. I'll give some example sites which have done the kind of SEO I would like for my website.


    These are the sites here:

    1. solarmovie

    2. iwannawatch

    3. zumvo


    These sites have somehow banned their homepages and also I think they have not submitted their site to google webmaster. Their homepages have no index but their post pages are on the top of google search engine. I have copied the url of their homepages and pasted it on the google search engine and instead of the homepage url, I have seen that their category shows in the search engine. Their global traffic ranks are below 10K and they don't have unique contents on their sites.


    So is this a kind of SEO or the function of the website. Could anyone here please help me out with this problem or direct me to a person or a site where I can get the solution with this problem?

    Thank You

    I dont think they have purposely blocked their homepages from serps. Not a good seo step.

    Most of the movie streaming sites have done the same thing with their homepages and it works great. These sites have 100k visitors per day and maximum are from google search engines.

    What exactly you want to make, if you want to hide your home page from indexing, that it is easy edit in robot.txt file.

    Just add a META noindex tag to your homepage if you really want to do such unnecessary things.

    You beat me to it, Treeofl1! :D

    OP, unless your competitors are doing something to increase their rankings, it's best to just focus on your own website.

    Well, their post pages should rank and they do above their homepages because the titles of their post pages contain the keywords and titles of movies the majority of their visitors are searching for.

    Yeah I did that... focused on my site, had 30k unique visitors per day and got penalized by google this month. But what have these sites done with their homepages that they did not get their sites penalized or banned by google? They had more traffic than my site.
