This short episode (less than 3 min) of the Russ & Randy podcast is a chat that Russ & Randy had about the differences between your website and your blog.
We also discuss providing an "RSS Feed" of your website for your community: what is an RSS Feed? What benefits does it provide you and your community? And how would you set up the RSS Feed for your website?
There very few differences between a website and blog. Both can be fully customized with respect to design, that is, both can be made to look any way you would like. You can add content (articles, posts, pages) to both website and blog, but it is much easier to add content on a blog.
The biggest difference between a blog and website is that a blog can be ranked easier than a website because a blog is coded (computer programming) for SEO and it's easier to implement the techniques of SEO on a blog.
An additional difference between a blog and website is an RSS feed. An RSS feed (Rich Site Summary) allows websites with frequently updated information to syndicate or automatically distribute their content.
Blogs inherently come equipped with an RSS feed. Everytime you publish a new article on your site, an RSS feed is sent out to your followers via email to alert them of new content.
For a medical practice, this "newsletter" automatically gets sent to your followers/patients who choose to subscribe to your website via email.
They never miss a thing!
Thanks so much for listening!
