    Smile What page should I link to?

    Hello everyone,

    I am working on a site, a local nutritionist, and I am about to list her site on a few directories. Her homepage is already ranking on the first page (bottom) for her main term; she offers a few and complementary services: she’s a nutritionist, a counselor, she works with flower therapy and so on… We decided to keep her homepage as a presentation of who she is and what she does in general and are creating specific pages for each one of her services.

    Her main keyword for now is “Nutritionist + Town” for which her homepage is ranking. So my question is: now that we have a specific page for that service, once I list her site on some directories, should I link to the homepage (which is already ranking) or to the service page (which is not ranking at all right now, but is more specific)? Also, if this can help:
    - the homepage has really few links, so the present rankings come from on-page optimization
    - her GMB is linked now to her service-specific page
    Thank so much you for your opinions and suggestions
    Elio

    You may not have a choice. Many directories will only accept links to the home page.

    Hey djbaxter,
    thank you for your prompt reply! Yeah, I thought about that while I was writing my question actually. But, hypothetically, given the possibility, what could the best solution be?
    Thanks again!

    I would definitely use your homepage given the scenario that you described.

    Yep, I agree with Colan. Always go with the one that ranks highest organically.

    We really need to stop all this bickering about whether it should be the home page or the home page.

    You guys have it all wrong.

    He should link to his "front page"

    ...as I sometimes see people describing their home pages...

    ok, now you can throw rotten tomatoes at me!
