    Articles page vs. Blog


    Basically, I have a site selling this software and have decided to add some informational resources to the site. I am not sure whether I should build an Article's page or whether to implement a blog.

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of each compared to the other option?

    A blog makes for easy integration into the website with categories, comments and syndication. I would use that method if I planed to make lots of short posts and keep feeding a stream of information to the people who subscribe. The downside is standardized optimization.

    If you are going to write a small number of masterpiece articles then put them on a standard webpage and optimize them like finely crafted arrows.

    I crank out several very short blog posts per day to learn what topics attract interest and traffic - that informs content development.

    I suggest to implement a blog. Create unique and quality content pointing to your site is much better.
