I still get asked this question quite often so I figured I would post this here. Most of the readers know the answer, but if you find someone asking, forward this to them.
What is the difference between a Real Estate Blog and a Real Estate Website?
The short answer:
There isn’t a difference. At least from how your browser displays it to you.
A blog IS a website and a Website can be a blog.
At it’s core a blog is just a piece of software to manage the content on your website. Simple as that.
Should I build a new website with this software or build a second site?
A good question.
If you currently have a website that isn’t doing any good for you now I would suggest you scrap the current site and then build a new site using “blogging” software. You will end up with a better performing site and may possibly increase the traffic to your site.
If you have a custom built standard built website I would maybe keep it and build a blogsite to accompany it and help drive traffic back to your main website where hopefully you have a quality mapping IDX home search solution with lead capture.
