    Iv been pondering the idea of putting a blog on my site and was wondering if anyone had any advice on whether or not to put the blog on the main page or should link to it on its own page?


    Thanks

    If the blog is on the main page, it will pass on the link juice to all the posts, if it is on a sub-site install

    If you have a lot of great content on your homepage, I'd keep it there and have a blog in a sub directory.

    It depends on your site purpose. Most businesses keep a blog on domain.com/blog and that works well for them since the frontpage is mostly a pitch/branding page for their services. Blogs are somewhat more casual and less suited for that.
