    So my site is a static website and I am looking to incorporate a blog to supplement it.

    Currently the static portion is setup in a very simple link structure:
    mysite.com/keyword1/long-tail-keyword.html
    mysite.com/keyword2/long-tail-keyword.html

    My wordpress resides on: mysite.com/news/
    I was wondering if it is possible to rewrite the permalinks to disclude the /news/ so that it matches the rest of my sites link structure, and makes my articles appear to be apart of the static setup.

    Right now my wordpress articles go to: mysite.com/news/keyword1/article.html
    Goal: mysite.com/keyword1/article.html

    Any advcie at all would be helpful, thanks!

    try the "wp no category base"-plugin if "news" is your base category and you want to get rid of it. if "news" is the directory where WP is located, try to do a URL rewrite with your .htaccess file (ask google for this...)

    Hmmm... You can create a subdomain with that directory... Otherwise I think it would be hard to remove that directory from urls...
