What is a Blog? – A blog is also known as web log. It is a shared on-line journal where people can post diary entries about their personal experiences and hobbies. And what is a website? – A Web site is a related collection of World Wide Web (WWW) files that includes a beginning file called a home page.
So, Blog or Website (from SEO point of view):
A blog is easy to update as compared to a website. It is very easy to post any content such as text, image, audio or video in a Blog. Therefore, blog is considered to be author or publisher friendly.
RSS Feed (Really Simple Syndication) – RSS works in conjunction with XML code, which continuously checks the contents of a blog for updates. If updates are found, they are broadcast to all the subscribers of the blog through a feed. This feature is missing in Websites. Therefore, a blog tend to have more visitors as compared to a website. Blogs are more search engine friendly than websites because blogs are designed in such a way that these can be easily accessed by search engines like Big G, for example.
