Are blog articles less effective for SEO than blog pages? Or is it limited to landing pages? Thank you

Though they are frequently used interchangeably, blog sites and articles are not always ranked lower by search engines.

The purpose and target audience of an SEO campaign are what distinguish different strategies:

Blog posts work well for instructional content that focuses on long-tail keywords, or more specialized searches.

They assist in establishing your authority and drawing in organic traffic by providing helpful information.

The quality of the content, the relevancy of the audience, and the optimization strategies used determine how effective blog posts and pages are in SEO.

If they are informative, well-written, and keyword-optimized, both can be beneficial.

Landing pages, on the other hand, give conversion precedence over content.

Bottom-line, landing pages, and blogs affect SEO, but they play different functions and employ different tactics within the marketing plan.

A post can have categories and tags, which is helpful because it makes it easier to organize your site and all your articles. A good structure is also beneficial for SEO.

However, there is no difference between a page and a post.

From a technical perspective, Google doesn’t care if you use “page,” “post,” or if you don’t even use WordPress. They only see the HTML code that your server sends (which WordPress generates).

Pages and posts are concepts within WordPress for content creation.

Use what you think works best for your needs and your theme. Some WordPress themes, for instance, don’t display dates and authors on a “page.”

Most people use “post” for articles and similar content because it’s convenient to use categories, and these posts appear as “latest posts” in your site’s “blog feed” (in most themes).

They use “page” for creating “about us,” “contact us,” and similar content

Hey, here’s my opinion: WordPress pages are designed to hold the evergreen content of your site, while WordPress posts are intended for more date-oriented or “news” content. Posts target a general audience and are considered more “disposable.” Pages, on the other hand, are for static content, web apps, and specific parts of your site that are frequently accessed.
