@Easy Rider - couple of reasons why it's more important. Firstly it's going to look very unnatural to the Search engines if your article posts have more backlinks than your home page. In the short run it might wash but not long term.
Yup - the home page article has the major kw but you want to rank for that kw on your
[Link no longer available]
Lets say your big kw is "dog training" but your domain name is something like "train dogs well".
No probs -
go into the seo plugin options and enter kw into home title box
and the article description into home descrition box
Now your Home page title tag and description tag contain the big kw "dog training" and I presume you'll already have "dog training" in the H1 tag.
Next go to Setting - General in WP and at the very least pop the kw into the tag line box
- also if you can find a way to get it into site title
instead of tag line box even better
Next you want to strip all anchor text links in your site pointing to 'http://mysite.com/major-kw/' and have the anchor text "...dog training.." pointing to
Now lets say you have some articles on your site like:
labrador dog training
puppy dog training
pit bull dog training
training dogs to stop barking etc.
Because you are now ranking for "dog training" on your home page all these additional "dog training" articles are going to be sent serious link juice from your homepage - you won't have to do as much backlinking to the articles :)
Also it will be perfectly clear to the search engines and visitors what your site is about.
