    Blog Setup Advice Needed

    Hi, I want to create a website with WordPress blog to promote my services. I want advice regarding setting up the blog and SEO. What would be the better option for me as I want home page as static page instead of recent blog posts)?

    (1) I install the WordPress on home directory and set one of the static page as home page.
    (2) Installing the WordPress in blog sub-directory (like mywebsite.com/blog) and having a well designed static home page.

    What is better for SEO?

    I depends on what you want.
    Do you want website + blog
    or do you want just a website in blog form?
    Anyhow I would go with WP on root folder.

    definitely you should not install 2 WP one for blog and one for home page design, in wordpress you have option to select your home page and post page, you can create 2 pages one named Home and other named Blog and make them according to your need.

    In your theme settings it should give you the option to do that. It's not hard. You can experiment with it and get it just how you like it.
