    I have found 4 to 5 keywords that I would like to rank the homepage of my blog for. Is there any harm in back linking the same page for mulitple keywords?

    Sorry if it is a stupid question!

    Are you asking if it is ok if you use different anchor text to link to your home page?

    If that is what you are asking, it is actually highly suggested that you use different anchor text to backlink to your website.

    If that is not what you are asking, maybe try again?

    No but creating a seperate page for each keyword you want to target is much better. Then send links with correct anchor text to each seperate page. That way tour title / post can be better targeted to the keyword you want to rank for.

    It's always tempting to send all links to the main page but in the long run it's better to only send 40-50% there with 50-60% on deep links.

    Yes, it would be much better having the keyword in the title I agree. It's just my main selling filter is on the homepage so I am going to need the visitor to click from within a page to the homepage. But I agree, I could do better on site SEO with an individual page for each keyword.

    Anyone else got an opinion on this?

    I have 20 main keyprases I build links for on my home page - granted they all have my main keyword in the phrase but they are ranking quite well after a month and I'm ranking for loads of other keywords i haven't link build for due to the conetent on my home page.

    I think its good to get some varartions in, I would never just optimse and build links for only 1 phrase - IMO it gives you more of a chance to rank for many different terms and long tails
