    I am trying to rank an internal page of my site and i am building backlinks as only manually commenting on do follow blogs. I have made about 300 backlinks so far building links every day. Yahoo explorer is showing 120 backlinks. I started building the links a two weeks ago but the page is still not appearing neither in google, yahoo or bing. After how much time i should expect the page to appear in the search result for the keyword i am targeting and is it harder to rank internal page than the home page?

    Depends, if your domain has some authority ranking the inner-page would be easy.

    The easiest would always be an EMD though so get that if you can.

    Try some other links like web 2.0s and contextual links and it should be fine to rank. Diversity is important!

    there's no way to tell, you've just got to wait for google to crawl the pages you have links on.

    It's not that ranking inner pages is necessarily harder than ranking a home page, it's just that by trying to rank an inner page, you also help your home page, which helps its rank and may make it seem like it's easier to rank your home page.

    So say you have three inner page, plus your homepage:
    mywebsite.com
    mywebsite.com/page-1
    mywebsite.com/page-2
    mywebsite.com/page-3

    When you build links to the inner pages, the link juice also helps the top level domain which then helps the home page. So if you're building links to all 3 inner pages, then your home pages gets the link juice from those 3 inner pages PLUS whatever links you built to the home page itself.

    This would make it seem like ranking a home page is easier, but really it's just getting a lot of help from the inner pages themselves. Think of it as a company with sales reps. If you have a bunch of guys selling for your one company (bunch of inner pages on one domain), then you multiply the money going to the company itself (multiply link juice going to the home page), which helps the company grow and profit (helps the home page rank).

    So theoretically, it would be just as hard to rank a one-page site (i.e. ranking a domain with just a home page) as it would be to rank an inner page on a multi-page site.

    If the inner pages don't link to the home page is that still helps for the home page ranking?

    Yes it helps the domain as a whole.

    My experience is that it's easier to rank inner pages than the homepage.

    Links are important as are the sources from where they are coming from. If all the links are coming from only place then it is not gonna do you real good. You need to mix it up and make sure that the links are from high PR websites as well.
