    Optimizing the primary keyword


    I have trouble understanding how to position the main keyword. As we know the main page gets the most pagerank since it gets the most inbound links.

    However, how can you optimize the primary keyword on the main page if you cannot write an article there, as there's a blog instead. Also, I cannot write out the keyword onto the top of the page because there's a brand logo instead. I can only effectively write it in the title. Does this suffice to make the page rank well for that keyword?

    Or should you make a special site for the primary keyword to have the keyword in the URL? brandname.com/primarykeyword ? No?

    Plus, you do get pagerank if people click on the logo from your subdirectory sites, right? But should the image (logo) ALT text be the primary keyword? I would make the image rank well? It don't see other sites doing this? Why?

    Yes yes, that wasn't the question though.

    Anyways.

    Is it acceptable to have multiple pages that target one keyword? What I mean is that if my main page is a blog-menu type site with keyword in the title. And it links to another site which describes the same keyword in detail (brand.com/keyword). What do you think, which page ranks better for the keyword?

    How important is to have a keyword as the anchor text in that case? The anchor text "about x" makes the target page rank fairly the same I guess?

    cheers

    Little bit confusing but as far as landing page concern, my advice is to fill title with a primary keyword and the keyword related to that. For logo alt tag, you can write brand name and also make sure your body content should be 100% match to the title.
