Based on peoples experience and knowledge, which is considered ‘better’ for longer term SEO coming from Jekyll, especially with Google, Pages or Posts?
My reason for asking is that I am using a Jekyll theme (Desk - Responsive Knowledge Base & FAQ Jekyll Theme Preview - ThemeForest) that does not have / provide sub-pages navigation in the main/top of page menu i.e. under FAQ, FAQ for Customers, FAQ for Business, under Services , Services clients, Services business users, etc. that type thing.
I think it is a very nice, clean, simple theme, the main reason for use, and I don’t want to start ‘messing’ around with it (too much) so that the original asthetic is lost. I am not even sure if adding sub-pages would ‘look/feel’ nice in the theme, sorry for rambling on a bit here…
I have content that that is static, which would normally fit as a sub-page under a ‘main’ navigation the contents of which will not really change overtime, but I would like the page / post where the content is based to be as SEO friendly as is possible.
Realistically my options are:
a) to put the content on pages, pages that do not show up in the main navigation or as sub-pages on the main naviation or on the home page, but are linked to on main navigation / ‘homepage’ pages so that users can click through to them:
b) to put the content in posts that do appear on the ‘homepage’
Does anybody have any comments, advice or words of wisdom as to what might be the best option to use to maximise potential for listing on Google - particularly as a sub-listing under the main page listing as with Jekyll Talk - sub listing: Help, Announce, etc.
I know that relevant content, well written prose and a genuine focus on the topic (without keyword stuffiing) is very important, but do people think that pages or posts have a better chance of achieving this, and would pages not listed in the main navigation / top of page have any chance of achieving this either?
Any ideas, comments or feedback welcome.
