    I've just started researching SEO seriously and am trying to rank my first site. The problem I have come across is that almost all the methods I have looked at only talk about ranking the homepage.

    My question is when trying to rank multiple pages of your websites that target other keywords is it alright to use the same method repeatedly for all the pages or will this become obvious to Google?

    Thanks

    Not sure what you mean by "same method repeatedly," but if your methodology is sound, it should work for anything. On page optimization matters for every page, not just your homepage, so make sure you're starting there. You should already have been building backlinks to your inner pages along with your homepage. How shady does that look if every single link to your domain is only to your homepage? Normally people link directly to the content of interest, which would mean a link to those inner pages. Building up diversity not only in where your backlinks are coming from but also where they are pointing to is going to help your site overall.

    You should continuously build links to a number of deep pages across your domains...

    Linking to only the home-page is a sure sign of manipulated SEO. Linking deep will also benefit the entire domain and other pages that you want to rank and create a more natural looking profile.

    You also need to consider link volume overall, as you may need to reduce link volume to the home-page to spread more linking across the entire domain without raising any flags.

    The general rule is to always link deep, with diverse anchors/platforms/IPs.

    If you are building a natural link profile, then it is only natural that they should look similar/alike. That being said, if your link profile looks unnatural and it is on every page, it will be even more obvious.
