Contains static content that is not time-sensitive and will not change frequently like the Services and About pages.

An individual page can be the homepage.

Pages can be organized in a hierarchy. Pages (parent pages) and subpages (child pages) make it easier for visitors to navigate your site.


Contains timely content—educational articles, opinion pieces, news, or entertaining articles that collectively make up a blog.

An individual post cannot be the homepage.

Posts can be labeled and organized by categories and tags (keywords).

Post Example:

Post: Should I Use the Cloud for My Business?
Category: Use the Web
Tags: applications/services/ tools, How To, privacy/security

Posts appear in reverse chronological order on the main blog page and in the blog archives.
