    Strange Page Ranking Higher Than Homepage


    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could help me solve this issue I'm having or explain it to me so I can work on resolving it. I'm a little confused as to why this is happening.

    My website is gamersoption.com but when I search like this:

    site:gamersoption.com + Modded Controllers

    You'll see that google ranks a secondary page page on our website (a category page) higher than our home page where the most work has been put as far as back links, and on page seo stuff.

    Any idea why and possibly how to fix it? Thanks again!

    A guess would be your titles and the content on those pages.

    I'm not seeing this when I search this 'site:gamersoption.com'. Your home page is first, then your category page.

    If you're typing in 'site:gamersoption.com + Modded Controllers', I see your home page, but not your category page.

    Just curious, why are you concerned about searching this (site:gamersoption.com)?

    Hi Hitin Mike, thanks so much for taking a look into that. That's very strange that you're seeing different results because i've test on many different computers and browsers. I've inserted an image to show you what I'm seeing very consistently.



    Also, the reason I am concerned about this is because my category page is ranking very will in stead of my home page which it should be the opposite. This is important to me because my home page is where I'd like to focus my SEO work because that is designed better for our customers. Thanks again!

    Hey everyone, can anyone verify that they are getting different results than these? Also, test-ok, do you really think that it's simply a matter of back links and on page SEO that could be causing this? Thanks again!
