Pages VS Post?
Please keep in mind that I am able to create pages and hide them from the home page navigation system.
Hi, I have done my keyword research and have also separated the low competition keywords from the keywords with higher levels of competition. My questions is, which keywords (high or low) should go on pages instead of post.
My thought is that the keywords with high levels of competition should be assigned to pages and also be used for the names of categories. The keywords with lower competition would go to articles.
The pages that target keywords with higher levels of competition could link to articles which house keywords with lower levels. Hope I'm making sense. Can you explain what you would do with lower and higher level keywords?
Be sure explain why you would place the keywords in certain places and so on. This all has to do site structure.

First of all, since you are clearly talking about a blog, I moved your post here.
As for your question, there is no single right or wrong answer.. neither pages nor posts is inherently better or worse for seo purposes.
I personally would create pages and post categories to suit my subject matter rather than my keyword targets... Once I decided which pages are required and what categories I needed, then I would then target my keywords depending on the subject matter of each. (And it's entirely possible that you might want to target the same keyword on a page and in a category or post/s).
A good golden rule is to always create your site for users, not for Search Engines.

The basic way I look at it is.
Pages for content you want to always be found and is not going to changes much.
Post for updates, news and other little but important post.
