From Seo Perspective, Should I Create A Blog Or Build A New Website?
Posted 21 February 2009 - 02:31 AM
1. create a website and share my experience regarding the book and encourage people to buy the ebook via my affiliate link.
2. do thesame thing as in 1 above but this time using a blog.
the advantage of 2 above is dat by virture of the fact that the blog site has been around for ages, it has comparitive advantage (Age has some effect on how well a site optimizes )over a site i just develope.
the advantage of 1 above is that i'll advertise the book in my parent link not sublinks.(search engines rank parent pages higher).
So from an SEO point of view, what will you suggest? what is most professional?

The question I'd be asking is how well the idea of promoting an ebook on (whatever subject) fits with the overall tone and what's offered on the existing domain, from the visitors perspective.
If it'll look odd to real people visiting your site because there's no real connection, using a new or different domain would be best. If it fits with the general focus of the main site because the subject area is similar, then it's probably worthwhile to use the existing domain.

Depending on the search term, I have plenty of interior pages that outrank "higher-level" general pages.
In my experience, it depends on how well the desired pages are optimized for the desired term(s).

According to the original post, it hasn't. It'll be a new blog. Or new pages that are not part of a blog. So even on the SEO front.
Do what's best for users.

I agree with Randy that ultimately what counts is what works well for users/readers. However my judgement is that you could lose a bit on the user preference side but make it up on the search-engine visibility side by using a blog.

BLOGGING IS THE BEST AND MOST PROFESSIONAL WAY OF ADVERTISING YOUR EBOOK .However you can also try book review sites , you can write an article or PR about the ebook and then submit it to various PR directories i think thats also the effective way.

There is no need to shout.
I would dispute that blogging is even a form of advertising, anymore then filming a tv advert is advertising, it's not the blogging or the filming that reach out to customers it is what you do with that medium once you have it. You advertise a blog, you can't advertise with it.

There's an old saying, "when the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."
Don't get suckered into thinking that the specific tool you choose is the most important part of the decision, or that one tool always trumps all others in terms of effectiveness. In the final analysis, it doesn't really matter which tool you use. If you know what you're doing, you'll get good results. If you don't know what you're doing, well...
You can give a klutz the finest rare woods and a complete set of the best woodworking tools in the world, and they'll give you a pile of sawdust. Give a master woodworker a few pieces of used plywood, a beat-up hammer and chisel and a few sheets of sandpaper, and he'll create a masterpiece.
It's not the tool; it's the skill of the craftsman that makes the difference.
If you're comfortable using blog software, then set up your site using that. If you're comfortable with some other content management system, use that instead. If you're a hand-coder from way back, use Notepad to create pages by hand. If you want to, and you know what you're doing (or are willing to take the time to learn), you can add yourself all the bits and pieces (like RSS feeds) that blog software includes.
It's the sales copy you write, the links you get pointing to your site and how well you advertise it that will determine how much traffic and how many sales you ultimately get. Most of your visitors will neither know nor care what back-end software you used to create the web pages they visit.
The specific tool you choose doesn't matter nearly as much as how well you use it.
