    Is it true that a blog is more important than a website? I've been reading opinions and everyone says blogs garner more traffic. Could someone please explain to me what is the relation between a blog and website. I have an e-commerce website as well as a blog.
    Thank you

    A website is an online representative of your business, and may even be your business. A blog is a source for information about a subject. For example, a plumbing supply website would be where someone would go to purchase a faucet, where a blog would have an article about how to choose a faucet. So the blog complements the website. Without a website, the writer of the blog would have to send a potential customer to a competitor's website, rather than their own.
    On the other hand, if the writer of the blog is a journalist or product reviewer, their purpose is to send reader's to another website to obtain the products they need, so having another website, other than the blog, is not necessary.
    In your case, the purpose of the blog is to inform reader's about your products, then send them to your website to buy them. Your e-commerce website is your business, so that's more important than the blog. The reason why you want the blog to get more traffic is so the website can get more traffic, but it is not, or should not be, the only source.

    A blog is simply a name for a web site specifically designed to run a feed of articles chronologically. The question of is a blog better than a web site is not really relevant. If you are trying to create a current topics site with fresh timely information consider a blog. If you are selling products or services or are a source of specific expertise then build a web site. Our window cleaning web site is built to move a service. We do not have current changing information. People want succinct pertinent information. Good luck. We use a company in Seattle called Inside Edge to develop and maintain it.

    Blog and website both are important for business and both use for different purpose. Blog terms are so intensely used around the net. Blogs are generally more informally presented to the visitors. The language used is often much simpler than on websites.
    So in short we can say ‘All blogs are websites but not all websites are blogs.’

    To answer your question, there is saying - "Today, It's not about the products you sell but the stories you tell"!
    Say, you have e-commerce website that sells clothes. You have your products listed with all that awesome photos & descriptions. That will be your business. If you have blog where you talk about fashion, clothing & all other things that correlate with your customers or audience. Then, you provide valuable information & fashion advice to people. This not only get's you traffic, but also sales conversions.

    Website and Blog are a different thing to each other. A website is a simple representative online to your business & products. Here you can clearly define your aim of business and their products in front of online active users.
    But A blog is a platform that allows you o create and post content for your customers & connected them. The issue is their people truly understand the difference between a blog and a website. There is some reason that clearly defines the difference between blog and website.

    Blog
    -----------
    - Increase Website Traffic
    - Establish Yourself as Industry Expert
    - Build Trust among readers
    - Engage with readers
    - Generate Business Leads

    In blog people see a human behind it,his story, emotions and of course it creates trust between him and the user. When e commerce website is just a website where you buy and sell

    Thank you again Diana. Again, you give great advice and the best short description. I now have more clarity on this. I will focus more on the blog to instill the personal touch behind the business.

    There are some differences between blog and website i.e the=is should explain as to what you should go with for creating and publishing your content.
    A blog is basically a weblog that a blogger creates a use for a sequential listing of blog posts. A blog can be easily started with services like WordPress, Blogger, etc
    A website in return can be anything. Anything on the internet presented in HTML/CSS or Java/Javascript/Python/Php etc. comprises of a website. A website may be complemented with a blog, but the home page would be more for browsing other pages and not just posts. Fully functional and eye-catchy websites are usually cost consuming tasks as you would have to build from the base up.

    Right! Blog is important because in website there are not enough room to add more resources for the audience and Search Engine love to show the users which has more potential Resources. Thanks

    I do not think that the blog is more important than website. It depends on your business actually.
