    Hi Guys,

    Thinking about my site structure. And I was thinking whether to use pages or categories for a term.

    For example I want to write reviews about a certain topic, would it be better to make a page "reviews" and then subpages "bluewidget reviews", or do categories a category "reviews" and include the reviews as posts...

    Thanks for your input.

    Since I am using Thesis I can actually add a nice description to the category pages. But I am not sure if big G values them the same way as they do pages. Probably you can lend me a hand with your experience.

    Thanks!

    Really depends on your site layout, I use both.

    SEO-wise it wouldn't matter.

    I would make a category with reviews and then post all the reviews that I want to make there
