    Hey guys,
    I have little problem my posts and xxx.com/blog is ranked better than my homepage xxx.com . They are on second page and my homepage is 3-4 page on google.
    What should i do? Just keep building links (more on homepage and less on innter pages) ? I have only used some social bookmarks and private blogs about 50% on homepage and 50% on inner pages.
    Some pages which are without links are ranked better than pages with backlinks

    Probably because you are updating /blog more often than homepage, and the info over there is more valuable.

    Do you have a link from all the inner pages to homepage?

    I think inner page's link is better than home page and inner page's got more backlinks as compared to home page.
    You can use inner pages link for your home page ,may be it help you better.

    I've had this happen and it was just my home page dancing. I kept building links, the problem fixed itself. Make sure your home page on-site SEO is solid; because it's a static page it has to be something special, as Google does love new content; it can obviously be overcome with more links, but ensure you've done the best on-site job you can.

    you should do opposite think you wanted to do.
    your index could be penalized by penguin because most of your backlinks goes there. i would advice you to diversify backlinks urls and create more to other pages. and only 1/10 to index page. once google sees your backlinks are natural, it should remove penality from your index.

    Home Page:
    Based on your sites home page, is there a reason why it is better for it to rank than the actually blog. If you are looking to make money with this site, which I assume you are, is it possible to shift the "financial interests" to the blog. It all depends on how you intend to make money, but If I find that google prefers a different page for ranking a site than the one I am trying to rank, then my first tendency is to go with the flow and focus on ranking the page that google likes instead.

    Although, if your ranking to the site are still very new, then it is a good idea to wait some time and see how things even out, because google may shuffle which page ranks for what.

    Another thought is that you could go for a double listing :)
