    Hi guys, is this the correct way to SEO a blog?

    Say I have a blog about "Training Dummies".

    -The front page would be optimized for the generic keyword "Training Dummies", and all links coming into it should have this anchor text.

    -Each blog post should be optimized for a more specific keyword, relating to the main keyword, like "Boxing Training Dummies".

    Is this the correct way to do it?

    I have always been doing it like this but I never checked how other people do it...

    Thanks :)

    Yes optimize the homepage for your main keyword and each post for the related keywords ..

    Also be sure Not All links have the anchor text .. try to add different anchor from time to time .. like "domain name" or "domain name keyword" etc..

    It's not bad .. When you diversify the anchors it looks more natural to G ..
    Again you will add most of the anchors with your main keyword but it will be best if you add some different anchors from time to time
