    Hi i'm new to seo, i was planning on backlinking to my site, but the keyword i'm targeting isn't in the domain name so i was going to do it to a page which has it in the url after a / . Is this a bad idea? should i just backlink to the homepage instead? thank you

    Backlink to every page on your site that you want google to rank highly. The URL doesn't have to include the keyword, but it helps. If your homepage contains your keyword, go ahead and build links for that keyword.

    That's not a url though. Google won't see that as a link, and therefore not containing keywords.

    It is not a bad idea afterall. You can place your keyword after the / in the url. And also don't forget to include your keyword in your content.
