I'm looking at the Page Navigation Summary specifically for my homepage.

I'm seeing around 10%+ of the pages that my visitors went to are NOT in my homepage. 

There are no direct links in there that can be physically clicked to go there.

Only reason i can think of is they are typing in the url and head there.

Does GA treat them as the next page path that way?

Thanks.

How would visitors get to those other pages in normal circumstances?

In normal circumstances, they will have to click through the navigation menu, then they could reach those pages.
