When a user clicks on a News article from somewhere outside of your site - such as an email alert, for instance - which site page do they land on?
The answers is a "News Landing Page," which is a domain setting that you can configure on your site. Whichever site page you designate as the News Landing Page will be the default location that users arrive at when clicking into your site from somewhere else.
Setting a News Landing Page
You can set the News Landing Page by clicking on the site's Domain Settings:
Go to the "Landing Pages" tab in the Domain Settings window, and click the "Choose Page" button next to "News Post Page" (if a landing page has not been selected already).
