I am not sure if i am missing here. On most of my blogs - wordpress posts rank much better than categories. Actually home page and categories few months after i start a site complete looses rank, even though they have most links and i use static pages so i can get them ranked. When a category looses rank, on its place come a post from my blog - even category is much more relavant for a keyword than the post. Also category has more link juice, more external and iinternal links. This isn't an over-optimisation penalty - as the same happens with a category that has no external links. My thoughts are that google simply doesn't like wordpress category pages even if static content is used on them. The worst thing is that homepage looses rank. It should rank the best - but i now have to accept that it is gong to loose rank after some time. How do you guys overcome this problem. Should i maybe use just posts for whole blogs? What about home page? I didn't saw much wordpress blogs ranked for their homepage keywords.
