    I have a page down in my menu that is doing much better then my home page. I guess there are many different reasons why, but is this common?

    If that page contains words or a phrase which is commonly searched for in search engines - then no, it's perfectly normal.
    e.g. If someone searches for "10c Roulette" they will land on my Roulette Page - not my Home Page.

    Yea your right but because key words are stripped away we don't know what words or phrases are being searched for.

    Check your webmaster tools for specific keywords or your Analytics aquisition tab ->search console ->landing pages. Click on the landing page and you will be able to see a few keywords that sent traffic to this page. If you dont have a lot of traffic just select a wider date range and this should do the trick

    I strongly recommend you to add more text content to your homepage. No need to say "quality content". IT IS A MUST!

    All pages are ranked indvidually. Normally long tail keywords tend to temporarily send to random sub pages. When your subpages get more links and authority by age you will see the traffic makes more sense.

    Everything is accepted as a whole. sometimes a 500 words page can contribute a lot to 3,000 words page with inner linking. Right?
