    Can an SEO expert chime in here and comment on how they handle the "homepage" url given the it should generally be in the format (www.site.com) but the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin wants the page title in the url.

    Not sure what the best way to handle this is or any suggestions on what's working? Thanks!

    Odd. Have you made sure that you've set a static page to display as the front page under Settings > Reading?

    Just gave it a test on my local install. With a static page set as the front page, the WordPress SEO meta box only shows the site URL in the snippet preview, as it should.

    Hi Andy, thanks for the reply. Yes, but I was referring more about the way Yoast grades my homepage. I keep getting dinged on my score because I don't have the title in my url. Is that something I should be concerned about? If so, how are people adding their homepage title into their homepage url? Thanks.
