Hi All,
Please help! My home page show up instead of article page on most or all my keywords of my newly written contents on Google. I would expect the keywords reflects each article accordingly. Any one know what is going on?

Does your home page include links to new articles? Especially links containing the title in anchor text?

Then it might be as simple as the home page ranks until the new page can be completely indexed and processed - and possibly that factor is coupled with low PR being circulated to the new article. It's possible that, once the new article attracts some backlinks, it begins to rank on its own.
