    I was reading a blogging for cash type ebook recently and they were stressing making blog pages.

    I have never made a blog page except for a newsletter confirmation page. I've only ever made blog posts.

    What do you guys think? Do you make a blog page for ever post?

    i think both of them have pro n cons. For me, I using blog page to make reviews about products and the blog post I used to share my thought and IM tips that I know.

    but if you interested making money using blog, you should more focusing on the contents itself. As far as I'm concern, the uniqueness bring you more profit soon or later.

    correct me if i'm wrong.. :p

    From a SEO/SEM standpoint my opinion (and that's all it is) would be that pages are better for conversions while posts are better for traffic catching.

    Put your sales copy on blog pages with URL's like:
    DOMAIN.TLD/keyword-page-title

    And put your traffic grabbing fodder into posts with URL's like:
    DOMAIN.TLD/2008/03/01/post-title-here/

    You want to maximize the RSS feature of your posts for bringing in traffic, but you want the best SERPs for your $$$ pages and the shorter and more friendly page permalinking seems better suited for that.

    Plus, it seems to me people become hesitant of sales copy in a blog post faster than they do on a blog page. I don't know why that is, maybe people just don't like having sales copy show up in their feed readers... but I've actually had a visitor leave a negative comment on a posting with sales copy in it where I was pushing a certain product, then he turned around later and purchased the same damn product from a page I made on my blog to promote it from. Go figure? LOL

    Again, just my opinion though.

    After contemplation, maybe he realized he was being an overbearing prick and your product actually had some merit. ;)

    I think if you set perlink as site/post-name and then page n. post are the same.
