    Why Google always shows the home page of a site except............

    Hi every one,
    i want to ask why google picks home page for all the keywords.
    for example my website is about video games and i have 5 pages as given below.
    Computer games.
    Playstation games.
    XBox games.
    sega games.
    Nintendo games.
    and supoose my website name is www.latestgames.com
    when i type the queries as given above then for all queries google shows the home page. why it does not shows the page about playstaion games when i type the query as playstation games.

    i saw on msn that it shows different pages according to the quesries but does not shows home page for all queries.....

    I didn't look at the site (because your post doesn't indicate that it is the actual url) but my guess is:
    1. All your backlinks are aimed at your home page.
    2. All the pages containing that information are linked from your home page using the keywords you are searching for.

    If (almost) all backlinks are pointing to your home page and it contains those keywords (backed up by deeper pages expanding on those KW's, Google will return your homepage for most queries.

    If you want hits to your sub-pages, get some direct links to them.
