I figured that every URL is basically like a page, or post.... and how else to describe it: every URL is a unique address - period.

 

Ok.. if that's the case, then of course the root URL is also his own page.

 

My questions:

What is actually the best for putting content on ?

 

Is it good to use a static page ?

Or is it better to have you latest posts on your root domain URL ?

What are the pros and cons ?

 

I thought, if I do have an optimized page for my root domain, that might be really good.

On the other side, if I am going to have constantly new content.. wouldn't it be nice to change my "window display" all the time with my latest and greatest content ?

 

And for that specific case... using WP... I was also wondering if it's actually good to use categories and posts...

 

I am kind of reluctant using posts and categories.. can not see any benefits.. since posts will show up as a duplicates at the categories...

 

What are your thoughts about this ?

After all that's been talked about in other threads, you're seriously asking another "which way is best?" question?

It really comes down to what kind of publishing platform you are using and what you most want to say with your Website.

 

To put it another way, if you start an SEO-related question with "which is the best way ..." the best answers will almost always start with "it depends ..."

The answer is, ....

 

 

 

Whatever you want to put on there.

 

Your site;

Your visitors;

YOUR choice.

 

There's nothing 'technical' to understand.

Nothing "special" to do.

 

It's just one more URL in the collection of URLs that you call a website.

@Jill:

haha...  yeah I still do, right ?  lol;   I guess I need to change the term "best" to "preference" - that might help !

 

 

@Michael+Chris:

Got it.. it boils down again to what ever you prefer, and what ever might be more beneficial for the site you have.

Makes sense that a news site for example, might publish always their latest news on the root domain... but that might not be ideal if you have just a few pages with not so many updates, posts or news. Or just one major page with the most relevant content.

No, it won't because nobody could ever say what might be right for your particular home page and business needs.
