    Good pagerank for inner pages but no rankings for keywords targeted on inner pages?


    I have a good pagerank for my inner pages but for some reason they dont rank well for the keywords I target on those inner pages. My homepage ranks well but for each inner page Ive tried targeting a certain keyword, but despite having a pagerank of 3+ in a not so competitive industry they won't get on the first page.

    Any ideas please?

    You seem to be under the impression that Pagerank has a direct correlation with search result positions. It doesn't. Now that we've cleared that up, take another look at those inner pages. Do you have the required keywords in the page titles, in an H1 tag, in the page body? Do you have numerous internal links to these pages with the keywords in the anchor text? Do you have good quality external back links to these inner pages, again using the keywords in the anchor text?

    Well then without more details it's going to be difficult to suggest where the problem may lay.

    You have to stop focusing on Page Rank. Realising that this shouldnt be my focus has lead to a massive improvement in my placing in the serps!
