    For example if i had a website called ABC dot com

    And I want to rank all kinds of keywords to that homepage.

    Do i have to have all the keywords on the homepage? What if none of the keywords are on the homepage will it still rank?

    Do I have to have keywords on my homepage to rank it? Can I rank for a keyword that is not on my site

    Technically you could rank it without the exact keyphrase on the page but you would need to have a lot more authority than your competition and you'd have to be about the exact same subject. So if you had a website about condoms you might be able to rank for the term "rubbers" because its the exact same subject.

    All that said, I would highly recommend you have SOMEWHERE on the homepage your main few keyphrases. I say your main because you don't want to keyword spam and have TONS of keywords stuffed... that is dangerous in itself. If you want to rank tons of longtail keyphrases you need to have a homepage that is ranking for a couple CORE keywords and then create pages on the adjacent topics to rank for the various keywords you want. So your homepage might rank for "condoms" and "rubbers" and then you would have seperate pages for "sheepskin condoms" and "spermicidal condoms" with content about those sub-topics.

    Look into something called Siloing. A good silo structure will allow your site to do this.

    Just using keywords correctly on your site isn’t enough to get you good rankings, if you poorly optimize your site for your target keywords, you rule out any chance of ranking highly for your chosen keywords.

    So, you need to get the balance right between optimizing and over-optimizing, i.e. using a keyword on a page but not using the exact same keyword, in as many different places as possible, and as many times as you can.

    Yes, it is rankable, as long as you have very strong backlinks with exact anchor text.
