What is the difference between Blog and Website?

When anyone started blogging often one question arises in every beginners mind that what is the difference between a blog and website ? So, let’s just clear the air and reveal the difference between a blog and a website.

The main difference between a blog and a website is the difference in how data is being presented on it. But Apart from that, in practicality there is a fine line between a blog and a website, which makes blog differ from a website.

There are some basic differences between them. So, let’s just clear out the air and reveal the difference between a blog and a website.

What is a Blog?

A blog is a web log that a blogger makes for chronological listing of that blog posts. A blog has its most recent content shown at the top followed by the later updated content.

A blog can be easily started with the online services available like WordPress, Blogger, etc.

Blogger provides you free service and is good to start blogging. WordPress costs you to setup a blog. The advantage on wordpress is that it provides you more number of plugins , themes , customizable templates.

  • A commenting system that invites readers to comments and to participate in a communication.
  • In short we can say blog is a personal website, where you can share your knowledge to the readers.
  • RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds for posts and/or comments for feed-readers like Feedburner , feedly etc.

What is a Website?

The website is different from blog in some manner. A website can be anything, anything on the internet shown with HTML/CSS /javascript/php/asp can be said as a website. The home page of the website is used to brows other pages on the website and not just a post. Building a eye caching website is a time consuming task but there are some software available in market to build websites like adobe dreamweaver.A website can be anything ranging from one page to billion user website like facebook, gmail.

Some basic identification of a website:

  • A design portfolio of work.
  • Pages are link to each another. You can submit data and website process over it.
  • A Frequently asked questions page that readers can browse to get more information.
  • A Contact form that allows visitors to complaint or to get in touch.

Why Ad:Tech Did Permission Marketing Right

My HipstaPrint 0 300x300 Why Ad:Tech Did Permission Marketing Right

As I mentioned in my previous post, I learned a few lessons at Ad:Tech this week. What I liked most about the event, however, was the precision with which they had permission marketing down to an art.

When I registered to attend Ad:Tech (for free), I was added to the list with updates about the upcoming conference, informing me about the free seminars and the scheduled programme. I could have ticked more boxes and received emails about advertising at the event or about the conference itself, but by giving me the choice, the Ad:Tech team ensured that I opted-in to receive the information I would actually find useful rather than annoying me with unsolicited emails.

Using my interest and my permission

At the conference itself, my interest (in all things advertising, marketing, technology) and my permission (to be contacted about suitable offers that may interest me as a marketing professional) was used in very inventive ways. From the moment I stepped into the exhibit hall at Olympia and printed out my attendee badge with a barcode (see above), my permission was being utilised on every step. A hostess at the entrance scanned my barcode to record I was there (and that it was only on Wednesday rather than on both days of the event). Every seminar I sat down for, someone would be scanning my badge just as any exhibitor I talked to would make sure to scan the barcode I wore around my neck.

Here’s why this rocks for the organisers and exhibitors:

  • Both the organisers and the exhibitors are operating on a sound basis or assumption that if I attended the event (in my own free time), I’m interested in the topics/products/services that were being discussed or presented on the days.
  • The organisers now know exactly which day (if not both) I showed up at the event and whether I was keen (the time of my arrival) or came just for an afternoon.
  • They know exactly which seminars I chose to attend, giving them a very clear idea of what my specific interests in Ad:Tech were. Now they can email me with invitations to sessions and events that will cater specifically to what I’m looking for. (And I hope they do.)
  • The exhibitors that I talked to and that scanned my badge now have not only my contact information in easily accessible form (in case my business card gets lost) but also have a full list of potential contacts that they talked to on the day.
  • The exhibitors can email me with tailored offers if they get access to information about my interests as well.

What do you think? Is there anything they could have done even better? Did you mind having your badge scanned?

Matt Cutts on Dropping Backlinks From Google’s Algorithm

Whew! Good thing the result is a mess. If links will be excluded from their algorithm, lots of internet marketing companies will definitely encounter difficulties in thinking of great strategies for their clients. But while this is far from happening (yet), let’s just remember and apply the following basics to the websites we manage:

  • Good Content
  • Good site layout
  • No site issues (hidden links, stuffed keywords, duplicate content, etc.)
  • Natural Links
  • Reach out more people from your social media profiles

Did I miss anything? Sounds easy right? But not that easy when you act on each item above. It will take weeks, months or years before one can see improvement with the rankings, traffic and customers. So good luck to everyone!
