    I've an e-commerce client right sort of an relative and it's been one month so, far I was working and understanding how his business works. The biggest challenge I got is that for every Keyword his home page is ranking not the internal pages which is quiet annoying. Can you guys please tell me how to fix it? So, that his internal pages should start to get ranking without loosing ranking.

    Well, quiet annoying sounds a lot better than a loud annoying.

    It seems that your homepage has a lot of juice to give, is it linking to your internal pages?

    Hmmm...sounds like you need more links to internal. Obviously home page has enough juice to rank those keywords so no need to link to it more. Get more links to inner pages. Also make sure you're not leaking out juice on home page to other immaterial pages. ONLY link to those pages you want to rank.

    Only other choice is to monetize home page which doesn't sound practical.

    Try getting more of BOTH authority and relevant links to those inner pages. Doesn't sound like you're gonna need much if home page already ranking for them. Test one or two pages and see what it takes.

    Good luck.

    Okay so,
    1. I should get quality links to inner pages right?
    2. Should I optimize the On page of inner pages according to the Keyword also?
    3. Should remove links coming to the home page few of them to rank high my inner pages

    1. Yes.

    2. If you haven't already optimized the inner pages to rank for the targeted keywords, then of course you want to adjust that accordingly.

    3. I don't think it will be in your best interest to remove these links altogether.
    Some of them may be quite valuable, however it may not hurt to redeploy some portion of these links and direct them to the relevant inner pages.

    Always value your pointers but do you really think some portion of these links from homepage and directing them to the inner pages might work?

    Also any valuable source you know that talks about the same?

    I recommend you build links to interior pages, considering its watchword specifies
