    I created 2 pages in Wordpress as suggested in this guide-

    My question is the page that I want to use as the homepage previous permalink was -my postname was (mykewordandmorestuff)
    I then changed that permalink to just my (my website)
    Now I cant changed the permalink at all. ie. there is no longer and edit button

    Did something detected that Im using a static page and realised that it was ok to changed the page permalink to just the website name? OR something is wrong? My permalink settings is /%postname%/

    Im using Yoast Plugin & Studiopress Theme.

    Also what do I do with the blank page as mentioned in the guide? Do I no-index them or just leave them alone?

    What is the correct settings for static homepage and permalink that is optimal for onpage SEO.
