Default My blog is in a blog subdirectory

I have various niches in which I drive traffic with a wordpress blog. I purposely set up the blogs in a subdirectory www.site.com/blog. I use a 301 redirect making www.site.com = www.site.com/blog. This was done with the intention of keeping home page clean in order to promote one or more products, or put a storefront on the home page in the future.

I did not have a store software in mind before I did this.

Now I am trying to wrap my head around putting my datafeedr store on the homepage and leave the blog in its subdirectory. I'm thinking that I need another wordpress install in the root of the website just for my datafeedr store. Which is fine. Is that what I need to do?

If that is the case, I can use the menu system in appearance to tie both installs together.

Thanks.

Yes, this is what needs to be done.

Another way is to use Multisite. I am doing this on one of my domains. I used to have a separate installation of my blog in a subfolder /blog/ since 2005 and had tons of archives. Then, I created a second installation on the root for a community (first buddypress then mingle). My .htaccess and other configuration brought issues that did not work for me and eventually this is what I did:

- I exported the /blog/ into the / (root) and converted it into a multisite.
- As "site 1" I changed the permalink structure in network settings to:
/blog/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

So I don't have to redirect my 4000 archived posts ... (all ....domain/blog/YYYY/MM/ DD/post-title-format) and still have stuff like pages at http://domain/store and other pages in the root.
