WordPress Website Setup - First Steps

Pages vs Posts - a quick Explanation
There are no "set in stone" rules about how to setup your website, but we recommend setting up the main framework of your site using "pages". Pages are found on your website using url's like this:
With your "blog", you can now create niche specific pages that focus on those specific audiences. In many cases the blog posts that you create will linked to from your articles (or ads) as they are specific to certain keywords and audiences. This is not to say that you cannot use "Pages" for your niche specific content, but blogging about it offers you the ability to categorize the content.
Again, there is no right or wrong with setting up your website but this is ONE explanation of how you can structure your website.
