    Can you differentiate blog and a website indicating the similarities and dis-similarities of both?

    Blog is one of the most important page on your website. If you are a product/service based company, remember your conversions happen on the website, and blog is a medium to drive that quality traffic who want to know and learn more about you.

    Blog would have a CTA which ultimately helps the visitor navigate through the designated path you have carved for him to have all the information to take a decision based on the buyer's stage he is in. You can archive the blog and come up with fresh content. You can re-publish the blog to drive more relevant people to your website.

    Website on the other end, is a bigger aspect. It can be a single page or million page. Website has all the information that a person needs related to what you serve. He just has to navigate through to find them all.

    Blogs are best when you have a topic that compels you to write fresh information on a consistent basis. That's why a lot of news-oriented websites are moving toward blogs.

    People who read blogs often use a functionality called RSS, which allows them to subscribe to your blog's content with an RSS reader.

    When they open up their reader, they can see the latest headlines from your blog at a quick glance. That's why it's important you choose a topic where you can provide fresh content on a regular basis. Otherwise, people may stop reading your blog if they see you aren't writing enough new content.

    Website is like a king and blog is like a prime minister in web world. Websites contains information but it needs something beyond that. Blog can serve many ways to boost the website regular updates, posts, articles and traffic generation etc.,

    You cannot write a long description about your company products, events or associations etc., blog can serve it.

    websites is the main source of your information about your business whereas blogs can be created for your websites in which you can upload fresh content of your websites daily.Through blogs your websites can be ranked easily in which you can mention link of your website.

    A blog is basically a number of posts and/or pages that are maintained by a content management system (like Wordpress).

    A website (www.abc.com) can be a blog (with Wordpress in its root directory); or a website can contain non-blog pages with an optional blog (with Wordpress) in a directory of the website.

    Some websites allow you to create your own blog (like wordpress.com) as a subdirectory within the website.

    A blog is basically a web log that a blogger makes use for chronological listing of blog posts. A blog has the most recent content shown first followed by the previously updated content.

    A website in return can be anything. Anything on the internet presented in HTML/CSS or Java/Javascript/Python/Php, etc.

    Blog is made up of posts that are written by the blogger.
    Basically the website is webpages that are on the internet.

    Blog is typically enlightening, educative and informal.
    A business website is professional and official in nature.

    The blogger must choice a blogging software example Wordpress.
    A chunk of the website can be a blog but not the entire website. :)

    In general blog represents a website with only content and nothing else where as a normal website other than blog contains many other terms like pages based on functionalities, forms, contact us page and many more interactive and informational pages.

    Many people have websites (for their businesses as well as for personal use) and many people have blogs. The issue is whether people truly understand the difference between a website and a blog. They certainly are not the same thing.

    The following explains the basic differences between a blog and a website:

    Website

    • Content is static.
    • Formal/professional.
    • Interactivity does not exist. There is only one-way communication.
    • Transactional.
    • Communication about products and/or services.
    • Almost everyone has a website. In fact, it is almost a requirement in business today.
    Blog

    • Content is regularly updated.
    • Not formal.
    • Interactive.
    • Informative and educational.
    • Interactivity about industry/customer issues.
    • Some people have a blog.

    Almost everyone has a website. In fact, it is almost a requirement in business today. A website is the perfect forum to self-promote and advertise and Its content is Static. Blogs have a lot of useful features that are very helpful in promoting interactivity. Fresh, original content is very important for Blogs and If you posted article regularly then it also build you new Customer .

    You can have a blog and technically it's still considered a website. You can have a website and have blog within the website. Basically a blog is a "web log", so it's basically a journal or a diary that you keep online. I hope that answers your question, cheers :) Happy blogging!

    I would say that a blog is like a magazine. Websites are also usually more commercial/promotional than blogs;blogs are usually meant just to promote your own thoughts or maybe things you have created or even found on the strrets/in the shops/in the nature and find beautiful.
