Can splash pages be added to blogs?

  1. How do I add a splash page to my blog?

    The blog I need help with is 999athome.wordpress.com.

  2. What do you consider to be a "splash page"? plash pages are used to promote a company, service or product or are used to inform the user of what kind of software or browser is necessary in order to view the rest of the site's pages. Are you thinking in terms of front page used to capture visitor attention as a promotion or lead-in to a marketing page?

    Splash Pages- An introductory, beginning page on a website that generally uses Flash or another type of heavy graphics that usually has little value in SEO and can easily have no value to search engines but esthetic value to human visitors. These type pages are notorious for tricking users.

    If you wish to create a static front page that can be done.

    Please be sure you fully understand the differences between Pages and Posts. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page called for example “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.

    To do that create two pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.
