Hi Guys,

Sorry if i have doubled up on this post, but the first one didn't seem to appear on the forum.

I was wondering for a blog, if you have optimized the home page around a particular keyword phrase that you are targeting. eg. "Dog Training"...this is the primary keyword phrase.

So this means "Dog Training" is in the title of the home page, in the meta tags and description of the index page.

So from here you build backlinks around the anchor text "Dog Training" with a link back to your homepage...

But what if you create a post titled"Dog Training", this will create a whole separate page on your site with the same keywords that you have optimized the homepage for....so then the search engines will rank that page as the keywords "Dog Training" as well....

So will this confuse the search engines as to which page on your site is trying to rank for the keywords "Dog Training"???

Also when building backlinks using the main keywords as anchor text, "Dog Training", should that link back to the index page of the site, or that post page?

Do you see my confusion here?

Also when optimizing the homepage for the main targeted keyword phrase, is there any other place i should be putting those keywords "eg. "Dog training" on the page? (Seeing as though it's a blog it's not like the keywords"Dog Training" can appear in every post in the content as each post will be centred around different longtail keywords.)

Any advice would be great...thanks.
