    The forum seems to be pretty unclear on this one so I thought I would start my own thread with my own conversation.

    When creating a niche site; what content belongs on posts and what content belongs on pages? Obviously things like privacy policy, TOS, contact form and etc belong on pages, but I've heard from pretty big influencers say that Google is more fond of pages rather than posts for content.

    What do you guys think?

    It depends on the niche. I mix and match Pages for my strong keywords and posts for my weekly supporting keywords.

    Google treats pages and posts exactly the same. Make sure to noindex your categories if you are using posts, but other than that SEO wise they are equal.

    I was wondering about this last week, then I realized, posts and pages are the same thing, a web page. If you have a plain HTML website, you wouldn't be asking this question.

    Yes, they are both web pages.

    However, there IS a difference between pages and posts and it relates to how your website is structured.
