    Was browsing around my site today and looking at inner pages PRs. I clicked the home link which takes me to /index.php and noticed the PR is lower than if I would visit the domain without a /page name. Kind of weird considering they are both the same page!!!

    Does this mean if I build backlinks to /index.php, I can actually make it rank higher than the domain itself?

    Basically yes. But PRRed Domain is much better you know. You can sell one with high price.

    No. They're NOT the same page. You have a canonicalization issue...

    Google treats the default page in your root web directory differently to the index.php. Your internal links should all point to xxx.com/ and not xxx.com/index.php. As you're passing juice to the index.php page rather than the default root domain. This is called normalisation...

    Just google "canonicalization SEO" for more info...
