    Default Replacing WP home page with Xara made page

    I have a client that has such a specific requirement for the design of the home page that it would take me ages to try to do it in WP. With Xara DP I can do it in a few hours. I need to keep rest of the site as a WP site.

    Is anyone doing this and also would this hurt the SEO in any way?

    Default Re: Replacing WP home page with Xara made page

    Not much to be going on with.
    You could have a static landing HTM page made purely from Xara to your Client's specification.
    The WordPress (WP) site could then be linked to from there.
    I would put the WP site in a sub-folder and as an extra path for your main URL: URL/wp/ or URL/SEO_friendly_name/.

    In the WP site you can always have a Home link back to URL so everything seems seamless, as it is.

    Regarding SEO, be sure to include a good description and keywords in the Meta Text.
    Also ensure there is good prose on the landing page that develops these meta.
    For main images, give them meaningful Names with filename=image_name.
    Avoid Xara NavBars and HiSlide pop-ups.

    I usually include an RSS Feed on the landing page to give the semblance of it being "dynamic".
    I sometimes have a random image viewer to give the same effect.

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: occasionally serviced XDPX, purposely unserviced XDPX12 & XDPX11 (32/64-bit), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7 and lots of 'permanently-owned' licences back through time (to CC's Artworks)
