Page

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.

Post

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.
