I have an issue with wordpress where I've created a wordpress site with a static home page. The static page needs to be called “Home” or some other name. The problem is that when I make a static home page, I have two duplicate pages - the "static front page" and the "Home" page.

You really shouldn't need to do anything. Google will usually resolve the duplicate page issue.

But I decided to monkey around with it. I changed the 'static front page' to a 'sticky post' and removed the links to the page called "Home' from the navigation and from the page title in the header of the post.

The page has now dropped like a brick. Any thoughts?
