    Installing a wordpress blog on older html site.


    I just wanted to touch base, and this post better not get deleted or I am leaving this site.

    I have a older html based site that has a high ranking. I wanted to install a wordpress blog on the site,
    Like for instance: site.com/blog

    My only concern is this, if I install this wordpress blog and google crawls it, will google in anyway shape or form, impact my rankings?
    I've seen where people have lost their rankings if they sneezed on the site.

    Does anyone know?

    I've never heard of that, I think your missing some information as to why they dropped...it's not from adding a blog.
    adding a blog isn't going to impact your rankings in a negative way...however depending on what you put in this blog can have an impact.

    Test-Ok, we haven't dropped, I am just trying to make sure we don't drop.
    Can you please expound on what we put in the content of the blog that can have an influence?

    I didn't say you dropped,
    you said:
    I've seen where people have lost their rankings if they sneezed on the site.
    and that's totally wrong...sneezing it on a site, which I'm assuming you meant squeezing it or installing it on an html site made whoever drop.
    you got bad information on that note.

    depending on how you use the blog can have an impact...if it's crappy writing, spammy links, duplicate content, can have a negative affect, where as the other direction can have a positive affect.

    My science officer friend, I was being silly and metaphoric. I cannot believe you didn't catch that?

    Putting a blog should not give you a problem. I did something similar a while back and added it as a site in Google webmaster, bing and the like with it's own sitemap etc etc as i use html pages on the main site (separate from the blog folder), never had problems since. As Test-OK mentions, it's what you put on the blog that matters, if it's off subject or spammy then it will have an impact.

    P.S. look forward to next load of weird and unusual smileys.

    It should only help as long it's original and quality content.
