    Only use your keyword and send backlinks to the homepage

    or

    do you mix up homepage and inner page backlinks even if you are not trying to rank an inner page?


    Thoughts?

    You see, It depends upon the type of strategy I am using

    If I am commenting on other blogs or forums, then I can only use my homepage as the link.

    But, when I am doing social bookmarking, then I will be using inner posts.

    So, a combo of these techniques makes it look natural :sgrin:

    If its just leave a URL then yes only the homepage URL of my blog.

    If its money sites then spread them all over. You will be having affiliate links on all pages right so try to get all of them ranked.

    I wouldn't waste time to link *cats* to the home page and the inner pages. My inner pages would mostly be long tail KW, If I want a more natural look I would mix up the keywords I use, for example if my inner page I wanted a keyword to rank for *cheap cat food* I would mix it up with other similar long tail kw or *cheap cat food stores*.

    In the end if you do link both *cats* on your homepage and inner page you can actual rank the inner page also at the same time. but that will be some hard work.

    If you are seriously just trying to rank your homepage URL and that IS the goal. Send most of your links if not all to your homepage. Use the http://www.url.com url.com http://www.url.com and click here, visit this and all that random real user linkage verbage to link to the homepage URL.

    For long term viability of a site though, you want interlinking, deep linking and content to spread to your link juice all around your site from link to link. If you're using Wordpress or another CMS this might be done for you as long as you set it up without any craziness.

    One thing you didn't mention is if you are just trying to get indexed? Are honestly trying to rank for the homepage URL? Trying to ranking for a homepage keyword? Etc. Try to be more specific and we can probably help you more!
