    Yes, if you are using your subpages to target relevant keywords. But, normally, homepages do have more backlinks than subpages, so you may want to do it that way instead.

    Doesn´t mean anything. Look up any authority website or 100% whitehat website with at least few years on its back, and you will see 80-90% of the back links are to frontpage.

    You build authority to your base domain, and then do a good link structure on your website, to rank on subpages. Your subpages don´t need links to rank.

    Absolutely terrible advice to have more backlinks to your main page if you are targeting more than one KW for a site.

    That is not how you will rank your site for your KWs. You want backlinks going to the inner pages on your sites, targeting those KWs which are your focus for those pages.

    The root (main) page on your site should be a general overview, a gateway page of sorts, and you should have your inner pages do the heavy lifting as to KWs as well as backlinking.

    Op for this kind of questions that you can easilly get an answer by yourself DO it!its the only way to be sureabout the answer. Find some authority sites go to openlinkprofiler and see yourself that Basstrackerboats gave you the correct answer here.

    afaik its perfectly normal. make it natural buddy. its not important that main page should have more and inner page should have less. but it should be upto considerable level.

    I'd say it would be unnatural if your main page has more backlinks that inner pages, not the other way round...

    I highly disagree with this. Unless the overall size of your website is HUGE your home page should have the most backlinks of any page on your entire site. Also base it off of traffic. If an inner page only gets 10 clicks a week then how can it naturally get 1000 backlinks a month?

    Home Page:
    If you are targeting specific KWs with your inner pages, as most site owners do, the root url should be a gateway page and not a focus page.

    It does not have to be a huge site for that to be the way... a small 50 page site would have that as well as a decent sized site.

    Now, if you have a MFA or MNS that is 10 pages or so, and you were targeting one or 2 KWs then your premise makes sense.

    Yes that is fine, it is all up to you. You may also want to create links to your homepage.
