    From SEO Perspective, Should I Create a blog or build a new website?


    I need to market an ebook as an affiliate. I have 2 options,
    1. create a website and share myexperience regarding the book and encourage people to buy the ebook via my affiliate link.

    2. do thesame thing as in 1 above but this time using a blog.

    the advantage of 2 above is dat by virture of the fact that the blog site has been around for ages, it has comparitive advantage (Age has some effect on how well a site optimizes )over a site i just develope.

    the advantage of 1 above is that i'll advertise the book in my parent link not sublinks.(search engines rank parent pages higher).

    So from an SEO point of view, what will you suggest? what is most professional?

    Website is set and forget.
    Blog you need to keep posting or relevance will drop.

    Both are useful for SEO, if done properly.

    Well, I do not agree with "set and forget". Website needs fresh content too.

    Considering the question. It all depends on how would you like to promote your product. You can set up a one-page website with some promo text on it in the "get-rich-fast" style, or you can create a online store with several e-books in it, or you can create a personal blog where you test some products (including this e-book) and share your experience on them, or you can create a blog and describe how well you do selling this fine e-book (only $67 for the first 10 clients!) and how splendid it is - to make $5K in a single month just selling e-books online etc.

    Both forms are good. There are popular websites and popular blogs. Choose your own way and move forward.

    I would go with the website option as you can build it according to your choice and customize it according to your needs.!
