When you want to search anything on Google, you typed that keyword and hit the enter button. What comes then with your search results are a few websites and blogs. We usually thought that websites and blogs are same and even some business owners who own a website doesn’t know the actual difference between a blog and a website.

Though, both are web pages but have differences as well. This article will help you to understand the basic as well as major differences between a blog and a website.

Blog and website differences

Basic differences between a website and a blog are:

  • The content on a website is static but dynamic on a blog.
  • A look of a website is professional or formal, but a blog is more like a daily journal or not formal at all.
  • There is no interactivity on the website with the visitors. But on blogs, anyone can comment and can have a bond with the blog owner.
  • A website is more transactional than informative but a blog is informational and educational.
  • A website reveals information about products and services only, however, a blog reveals information about anything useful.
  • Almost everyone has a website today, especially business owners but very few people own blogs.

Still confused between a blog and a website? Read on…

A blog is basically a web page where bloggers publish a chronological listing of posts. The most recent post showed first and followed by the previous post. Anyone can start a blog on platforms such as Blogger and WordPress etc. The fact is one need to update his blog with updated content on regular basis. A good blog is the only one which has a number of quality and informational content.

Examples of blogs: DigitalProfitCourseBlog, ScoopHub (these are just examples)

On the other hand, a website is a collection of static or dynamic web pages. It can be developed in HTML/CSS or Php, JAVA etc. A website is a perfect web store where a business owner can promote his products and services. Information about specific product or services or buying something is exactly what a user will expect from a website. If you want to know about a product, you just need to visit the company’s website offering that product and you can satisfy your needs.

Examples of websites: DigitalProfitCourse, VaadiHerbals, MyCashKit (these are just examples)

Conclusion:

Both, a website and a blog works in a very different way, serves a different purpose and looks different as well. A blog also compliments a website. It increases the worth of a website because Google love to index new and updated content and that’s what you can do on your blog which in turns helps your website as well to get ranked in search results.

    Your explaining of difference between a website and a blog is quite enough for a reader to understand. Here, you have made a mention of some languages which one should know to create a blog. A person who doesn’t know such language, how can he/she build a blog?
