If your have an article that shows up on your Front Page, that means it has been "Featured". You can "feature" or "unfeature" articles (place them on the home page or not) either from the Article Manager, or from within the article editor itself (the option is below the article name and alias).

To "see" an article on your site, it needs to be linked either from a menu, or from another article. To make a menu item link to an article, look in the top menu of the backend of your site, under the "Menus" tab, select the menu that you want to edit, and create a new menu item that links to this article. After this, you should be able to click the link you created on your website menu (on the frontend), and you will be able to view your article.

What if you don't want your article to appear on a menu? In other words, this is just a landing page for a PPC campaign and doesn't link from anywhere else in the site???

You can create an invisible menu... a menu without a module. Add a link on this invisible menu to your article... save the menu item, and then go back and edit the menu item again. In the "Link" field, you will have the relative address for your article. You can combine this with your website address to give you a direct way of getting to this article. You can also download an extension called "Better Preview" that will allow you to grab the address for any article easily (no menu method needed).
