    This is just my observation and would like some feedback from the experts before I revamp this website.

    I have 2 websites. One is a wordpress blogsite and one is a static website. The blog is never updated. I been trying to SEO my company static website for some time now for location targeted keywords. I'm not going to give the niche or city out, but let's just say it follows a pattern like this. The stats are accurate for my actual keywords though.

    Chicago Lawyer
    Type: Static Website
    SERP: Page 3 Position 7
    Google result for "Chicago Lawyer" = 81,000
    Google result for Chicago Laywer = 4,222,000
    This website has been active since 2004. For the past few months I been trying to backlink. I tried backlinking it in the past but very little luck. For the past 2 to 3 months I have been backlinking consistently and verry little improvements in SERPs.


    Painful Migraine Headache
    Type: Wordpress Blogsite
    SERP: Page 1 Position 4
    Google result for "Painful Migraine Headache" = 852,000
    Google result for Painful Migraine Headache = 8,460,000
    This website has been active since January 2010. Tried backlinking in past but go sandboxed. Bounced out and now been backlink consistently for 2 to 3 months and keywords have been ranking VERY well VERY quickly. Traffic is rolling in.


    It seems like it would be more difficult to rank for the WP Blog stats, but it's actually quite easy. I have nearly dominated my niche for most keywords for the WP blog and the traffic is rolling in. The location targeted static website is VERY difficult to get moving in the ranks. I can't seem to budge it a page for just 1 keyword. It just fluctuates positions on page 3.

    So I guess my question is, do WP Blogs rank better (even if never updated)? I haven't added a page on my WP Blog in like 8 months.

    Help!

    Define static? Does that mean you are not adding content on a regular basis ?

    I would have thought static is better, but there is no basis for this, both should be the same in google's eyes, they're both sites judged on the same things seo wise.

    wordpress is much easier to maintain in my eyes, also plugins are pretty good as is the cost involved in set-up.

    Static as in a standard 5 page business website that will probably never have new pages and probably always the same content.

    Opposed to a Wordpress Blog.

    Static HTML sites rank in Google just as good as sites based on the WordPress CMS. Comparing a static HTML site that for some reason your won't update and a WordPress site that for some reason you will update makes no sense to me. The site that gets updated every now and then will rank better in the long term.
