    If you want to know my opinion, then I will suggest you to go with static pages. And create a /blog/ page on your website and post articles on a regular base.

    most of themes provide page builder and you can create static pages and create custom post loops with latest posts or with best, popular posts, etc. It's much better, because you can use custom headings and text blocks on such page and still have latest posts links

    Probably depends on the type of site that you've built, but most go with static. I run a homepage that's dynamic so that link juice from the homepage does get passed to newly added posts.

    As mentioned, some themes in WP offer offer static and latest posts on your home page. It really depends on what you need to show on your site though? IMO, the content on your blog posts are most important as these are the ones your visitors will be reading/checking out.

    i think id depend site nishe, updated content is good factor for search but for some sites it usually need static page for visitors.

    so i think major factor is to create website for visitors.
