    I dont understand how this fucking thing happened.
    i am 4th page for the term i am trying to rank for.
    but the page which is ranking is my privacy policy page?
    i have never build links for this page.
    how the hell do i correct this and bring my homepage in serps?
    my site is fully indexed.

    weird....kinda funny too, I've always thought Big G does respect privacy, but that would take it a bit far lol...

    you could try putting your privacy policy page as an exclusion in your robots file...it will take time but eventually will get out of the search engines.....

    peace,
    gregs.

    Or if you are pulling that much traffic to your privacy page then how about putting a re-direct to your main page. Don't just let that traffic go to waste.

    Put a link (in the privacy page) with your keyword linking to your main page, and make all the links from your site to the privacy policy no follow

    ok.guys it evened out tiself.
    i did not do a single thing.
    i got a jump in the ranking and also now the correct pages are ranking.
    so i guess as my site was new and not fully indexed,hence this problem was caused.

    I did recognize a similar thing:
    Optimized and builded links for a category. Category stay on #8 - Article in Category which has not one backlinks ranks for #1
