Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
i have a page on my website "Widget Equipment" its mentioned in the title, the main heading and has relevant info all about "Widget Equipment" on the page.
Why then does G list my home page for this phrase?
When you reach the home page "Widget Equipment" is present, but only as a text link in the main navigation.
ps, the reason im asking is because im listed was down on this phrase and if the correct page was listed it would be page 1 probably.

Probably... but most probably not. It all depends on the PR of the deep page in comparison to your home page and the other G factors for search engine placement.
ill give you some details, see if it will help.
Home Page PR is 5
Page that should be listed is PR 4
The "Widget Equipment" page has that phrase in the title, meta keywords, meta description, an h1 tag, links and normal text.
the term "Widget Equipment" appears one on the home page in the main nav. there is no mention in the title, meta keywords or meta description
Changing the wording in the main nav menu to another phrase might not be the best thing if you want to rank for the original phrase.
Maybe an external link or two directly to the deeper page will do the trick.
