  • New Site – SEO question

    Posted by Ricardo Vasquez on June 22, 2022 at 2:29 pm

    Hey, I have a new WordPress site.

    I don’t have it ready yet but I want to post some blog posts. So, I want to temporarily make my blog the home page. I’ll switch it once my homepage and other pages are built.

    My question: When I disable the blog as the home page and make it a unique page will this negatively impact SEO?

    Also, what are the steps to make sure your site starts to rank in google?

    Thank you guys.

    If you don’t want your site to be indexed yet, you can check the box to discourage search engines from indexing in Settings > Reading.

    No, it won’t hurt anything to make your homepage into a page.

    And, when you’re ready, just set up an SEO plugin to optimize and get set up with Search Console. Google will get ya indexed.
