My homepage is appearing further down the Google rankings for my main keywords than internal pages. Its like Google isnt picking up the links to the homepage in the menu. Any other reasons you can think of would be much aprpeciated.
Keywords for the homepage are dog correction collars. When i look on Google its actually another page on the site that comes above the homepage for those keywords, even though it is less optimised for them.
I have a webmaster account, and i notice when i look at internal links, that it doesnt show any to the homepage, which i find strange as its linked in the footer and menu from every page. Very strange and any views welcome!
Thanks Revium, when i have done the ‘site:’ syntax in the past, i never thought to take the ‘www.’ off. So it would appear that the homepage is indexed, but not as a ‘www.’ I think i can set the homepage to ‘www.’ in Google Webmaster Tools, so presumably if i do that it will start indexing the ‘www.’
It is interesting that your homepage does not show up with the site command for both www and non www, but hopefully changing the setting in Google Webmaster Tools will change that. At this point I would not worry too much about it, you know it has been indexed.
