I need the Yola Community to come together to give me some advice on my site. I know that whenever I get into trouble I know that the community will be there for me.

It is so comforting :)

Ok here it is.

My site http://www.winnersedgetrading.com is basically a blog. But there are other features provided.

So when I first started I didn't know what I was doing( I still don't but I know more now than I did then.)

So my home page was an introduction to my site. Now the problem is that my most valuable content is the trade of the day page http://www.winnersedgetrading.com/tra...

Most of my traffic goes to this page. I was thinking about making this my homepage but I am afraid if i do that it will have implications of creating broken links all over the internet to those pages that are linked to my site.

So the question is should I do this?

Look at my home page and my trade of the day page and let me know what you think.

Thanks

Casey

Hi Casey,

That was a very good question... unfortunately it would not be possible to make that page, "trade of the day", your home page because it is a blog page and there isn't a "Save Page As" option to make it the index page.

Also, you are correct, if there are a lot of links out there going to the current url of the page, changing it could be detrimental. If this is a really important page, could you call it out on your home page really loudly?

I wish I could have given you information about making it your home page, I'm sorry that isn't an option at this time. It's very exciting the strides that your site is making, congratulations!

Hi Casey
I assume you are tracking which pages on your site gets the most visits and have found that people are going straight to your 'trade of the day page'.
This is nothing to worry about, your 'home' page does the job it should do by telling new people what the site is about, people who want to revisit your site will tend to bookmark the pages they are interested in and bypass the homepage.
I agree with Emmy about highlighting the 'trade of the day' page more on the 'home' page, but don't worry too much because anyone jumping straight to the 'trade of the day' will be a returning person who obviously values the information you are dispensing.
