Why does my home URL and subpage URL keep switching places in G?

    ive ranked my homepage (i.e. dogtraining.com) on 2nd page. but every couple days or so, G changes it from homepage URL to subpage URL (i.e. dogtraining.com/how-to-train-dogs) EVEN THOUGH i never did any SEO to my subpage URL. G just keep switching it back and forth for some reason (ranking position remains the same throughout). why is this happening? i only want to rank my homepage

    It's probably because the SEO scores for the two pages are relatively similar so google is doing a split test sending traffic to page A (your homepage) to see how the bounce rate and other analytics of that page compare to page B (your inner page).

    I've had this happen to me before and what I did was started doing SEO for the inner page as well, now they take up two spots (4th and 5th) instead of switching between 1 spot.
