    Picked this up from another site can anyone shed any light on this

    Scenario

    I have a domain which goes something like Keyword dotcom.

    A great keyword domain with more than 1000 visitors a day on reaching first 3 results on goog and superb conversion with CPA offers...

    I slapped up a blog...put content on postdated format and built links to it and waited for it to come up....sadly it never did...

    Change made:

    I slapped up a page(not post) in wordpress with my keywords in about 300 words...and made it a static homepage and added the following code to the page.php in the template after the content.

    Code:
    <?php query_posts('showposts=5'); ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <h1><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1> <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    Which shows off last 5 posts on the home with a small initial excerpt to it...simple?

    Effect:

    You guessed it right....traffic baby! The blog format is not really the best for niche sites, especially those with keyword name as domain and hence this small change is making me quite a bit of money in the past weeks... Thats what I noticed and learnt and now shared!

    Hope this helps you too...

    Yeah, good tip. Having a static homepage is one of the first things you should do. Put it up with a nice easy navigation. Which that bit of code will do for you!
