•When to Use WordPress Posts


WordPress Post: If you are not going to post regular news or updates about your business, chances are you won’t use Posts at all. A simple business website, with a homepage, about, services & contact page, does not need to use WordPress Posts.

Here are a few examples of when you should use WordPress Posts (instead of Pages):

  •   Your personal blog should use Posts to publish regular articles about travel, adventures, your fitness journey, rock collection, funny things your dog does, etc. Any specific topic that you plan to write about regularly should be a Post.
  •   Company events, announcements, conferences attended, etc. on your business website should be Posts. These are date-sensitive pieces of content.
  •   Press releases should almost always be Posts, not Pages.
  •   All content that you want to be syndicated via WordPress’ built-in RSS feed should use a Post
  •   All other pieces of content that will be published regularly and centered around a common theme or topic

As a general rule of thumb, if you’re not blogging or adding new content to your site on a regular basis, just use pages. Sometimes WordPress includes one sample Post and a sample comment. If you’re only using Pages, you should delete both the Post and the comment so they don’t show up in search engines.
