    Instead of my inner page ranking for the keyword I'm targeting for that page, my home page ranks for it instead.

    Not sure why this is...

    I'm pointing links to that specific inner page but the home page keeps ranking instead.

    Now the rankings aren't at #1, they are sitting around 15th position or so.

    So, do I keep building links to the inner page or homepage?

    Keep going, it'll eventually come around. Your index most likely has 90% of the sites links?

    Build to both - that's what seems to help me...
    Also, I discovered I had a 301 redirect once which was why a different page was ranking than the one I was linking to. Kinda stupid I know!

    Yep, keep building links to both. DOnt just build link to your homepage. Buidling linkin to page WITHIN your site is a very effective SEO technique.

    Yeah, build links to all your pages. The results will be a lot better.

    Give it time it will swap around but look at it this way many people are struggling to get any pages moving, so think of it as being 1 up!

    I have the same problem for one of my site too. Initially the home page was ranked with the target page as 'more from this site'. But then G left only home page ranking for this keyword. I keep building links to the target one.
    BTW .Does you home page has content that is optimized for your target page keyword?
