Conflicting Theories About Page And Post Rankings
Hi friends, I have been looking into whether Google and other search engines rank Posts & Pages differently and let me tell you, there sure is a lot of conflicting theories. Then things began to get a bit too complicated for me to even follow.
Here is why I am inquiring about this issue. I am working on a new website. I guess you can say, I want to go against the grain.
I am thinking about writing all my content as Pages and leaving the blog roll for just that. Blogging. Post that are of course relevant to the site subject but not as relevant as the Pages. Hopefully that makes some sense. For example I have a blog post that is more motivational then it is let's say, a product review, or training tutorial etc.
I am using the Twenty Seventeen Word Press Theme that has several main pages that are somewhat set up like a blog roll.
There is the home page which welcomes and explains the website. As you scroll down the page, I have another page (with a header image), introducing another aspect of the website, scroll down farther, there is another header image with another aspect, scroll down further and you see another header image and introduction to another aspect, then another header image and my blog roll and then another page that is a contact page.
So you see, my front page is not a blog roll but more like a static page that rolls with several different introduction pages with headers. I told you I was wanting to step out of the "box" and do something a bit different.
This theme supports three different menu's. I am thinking about adding pages to a top menu that has non-clickable titles for the remaining pages that I create.
With all that being said, (and hopefully explained adequately)
What are your thoughts about ranking and user experience with this type of set-up?
I know that Kyle said Google likes seeing the date on posts. I am also wondering and will be looking into a possible plug-in that will add dates to the pages as well.
Your input will be greatly appreciated and I will take them into consideration before getting too deep into the creation of more content.
Thanks My Friends,
