I have used several strategies sending links directly to the home page of my blog, I was not penalized but also not have classified.
My latest idea is to generate backlinks with the GSA to the pages of articles and not create new to the home page.
The question is: will thus gives to prevent Google realize I'm doing spam and value my website, making my homepage get the first results?
I am using a EMO and I think that is why I do not have classified still generating backlinks directly to the domain.
Google should be closer to the root domain than the subpages. What do you think?
Have you used this strategy? Got what outcome?
