    Ok I just started figuring this out. This is what I have so far...

    I take an html sales page and slap this on it:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: sample
    */
    ?>

    I then upload the page into the current theme.
    I create 2 pages in the admin panel.
    The first called blogs, do not change theme.
    The second I will call salespage, but I will change the template to "sample"

    In the admin panel I change to a static page as the home page, "salespage"
    I change the blog posts to "blog"
    adjust my permalinks and DONE.

    I now have my salespage as the homepage of my blog.

    NOW, here is the question;

    I use plugins like all-in-one-seo and such. Do I need to add code into my "new home page" for this new page to be fully optimized?

    I don't want to carry over any theme properties, just SEO benefits.

    Here is the sample:
    Code:

    I created this by the method used above. Thanks, any help appreciated.

    I am not sure. My homepage is unique, unlike the rest of the theme, which is how I want it. I'm just wondering if I need any additional code for SEO. Maybe I need to call the all-in-one-seo plugin or something?

    Maybe the program would help, i don't know
