I have a similar situation on one of my sites. One of the articles on the site brings in 80% of the entire site's visitors. I have about 40 unique articles on the site. The one article has a PR5 and my main page only has a PR3. I am guessing that as I add more articles and their individual pagerank goes up it will reflect on the home page.

Do you have any redirects?

I have a non-www to www redirect for my whole site.

lobo235 you could just have more people linking to your more popular article, or your site could be distributing more prominence to that section by linking to it more often internally, therefore increasing its PR.

That's exactly what's happening I believe. That article is linked to more than any other page on my site. Maybe our friend goneinthesun is experiencing the same.

Hi lobo235,would you please explain how to implement non-www to www redirect? Why you do that and what are the advantages of doing so. Thank you for your advice.

Well, the reason that you would want to do it is to avoid getting hit with a duplicate content penalty from Google. For example, if you have the page www.example.com/index.html it will also exist at example.com/index.html. Google and other engines may give one of the sites (either non-www or www) a penalty and most the pages will not show up in the search engine's index. Here is the snippet from my common.php file that performs the permanent redirect from non-www to www:

if ( $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"] == "example.com" ) 
header( "Location: http://www.example.com".$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"] );
exit( );

This can also be done using the .htaccess file with apache. Check out the apache we server forum to find more info on using that method.
