Is it possible to have an area of text on the homepage for SEO purposes? Right now I’m just looking for somewhere to display photos for friends and family as photography is my hobby. But in the future I would like the space for SEO.

All the sites I’ve seen with this theme just show a nice display of photos in the homepage.

Thanks for your time!

I doubt it as the home page is just a gallery. You could modify the theme and code it in if you know what you are doing. Plus I am not convinced quite how much influence that will have on the SEO. There are plugins which you can use to help boost your WP SEO performance. That would be the easiest option.

Your best bet is to email the author of the theme and ask for their advice as they know the set up best. Good luck

Thanks! I was scrolling through all the comments on the Expressions purchase page and saw a few purchasers that posted their links and some have copy on the homepage with a large static image. I guess I’d just have to tweak the setup a little.

What they have done probably as can you is assign a different page to be your home page that’s really easy and would achieve that effect – the difference is that I doubt they have the cool gallery on the demo home page within their design – that is a set page but you could have a text page with images not using the demo gallery layout.
Good luck

Yeah, they just have a large still image at the top and some copy under it. The cool portfolio is on another internal page.

Thanks for your help! I’m still undecided…
