    Why use a blog and a website? It was recommended they I use a blog that is relevant to my web site?

    I see no point in a blog and a website since you can do same with both. Considering Product reviews, but can't decide if I should do  separate blog, add product review pages to my sites using categories and pages for each type of product, or use blog pages on my site, or simply create a product review web site and link back and forth.  I use Weebly for web sites with domain names, and blogger under blogspot domain.

    Although I cannot say much about this, but I can conclude that having a blog relevant to the website would help your website become more popular.

    Blog is often an informally written content that has sort of personal values and feelings / suggestions, whereas the website could be a more formal platform where you could (officially) update product reviews.

    The blog could alternatively help your website fetch more traffic and (therefore) potential customers too, meaning more revenue for you. Of-course back-links between your blog and the website would do a great deal in achieving this target.

    Yes, as we know, search engines like good, fresh content.
    If you can compose an interesting blog post at least once a week and can then add a link from one of your relevant websites in your blog post, then that website page might be more popular as a result.

    Linda, I use Weebly as well. My site is a marketing tool for my freelance business. I also have a blog tab on my site. That way I only have one site to maintain and the blog acts as current clips. Prospective clients can learn all about me and get a feel for my writer's voice all in one place.

      bravewarrior:  I am thinking about setting up a product reviews page and then separate pages for the categories. But I might end up with too many pages. Reviews-Small Appliances:Toasters, Mixers, Can Openers   Maybe need a new site for this idea.

      Linda, you can stack your categories under "Product Reviews". That way, consumers can click the category they're interested in and go directly to it. For instance, I have Resources stacked under my Book Store tab.

      I know what you are saying. Reviews- Small Applainces: Blenders, Toaster, Mixers, Coffee Makers, etc.  I have category, then subcategories and then pages for each product, or should I have reviews for blenders, etc on one page.

      Linda, I think that would depend on how many reviews you have for each sub-category. I don't think you need a separate page for each product. When people are looking for comparisons, they like to see them on one page. One page per product type.

      I may try it on the site and see how well it works. If it seems to be too cluttered, then I will simply start another site for it.  Thanks!

      You're welcome, Linda. If the sub-categories are drop downs within Reviews, there should be no clutter. Good luck! I'd love to see what it looks like when you're finished setting it up!

    I maintain a website. But I do all my activity on blogger only. I have four blogs (sub blogs). One of it is linked to my website mvchari.in which contains finance and economic topics. But everything I do on my blogger only. I even do not know how to open my website directly and do activity there separate from my blog. I write article on blogger and they get published in the website from my blogger publish button.
