    Hi,
    I hope you can help because when I use google it gives 1000s of ways how to change home & site url but that is not my issue.

    For example, I have a page called "optimized keyword page". Now when I set this page as my Home / Front Page the keyword URL from the "Page Name" disappears.

    It becomes xxxxxx.com so when I checked how I rank for this Keyword that page did not even come up on the list.

    How can I have my Home/Front Page have the full url, like xxxxxx.com/keyword or is there a another way.

    I use Yoast Seo and it did not give any red flags but when I used an online onpage analyzer it said that keyword is not in the page link. I don't care if it is or not as long that my page is ranking for that keyword and currently it seems it is not.

    Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Your home url is always going to be xxxxx.com its your root url. If you want to rank for a specific keyword but can't get it in the URL that is fine just optimize your website around it.
