I love “what’s the difference between a duck?”
In some ways, this is a question of “what’s the difference between a duck and a mallard.”
A website is generally a static property that does not change very often. You put up your pages, and short of some copy changes as a result of changes within the company, it stays the same. Google gets very bored with these.
A blog, on the other hand, is a very public journal or diary. As you put up new blog posts, the entire nature of the blog changes, and Google gets all squidgy and happy, because they have new content to digest on a regular basis.
A blog can be a website, thanks to WordPress’ functionality of letting you add pages, and then setting one of those other pages as the front one. However, a website can have a blog within it, but is not a blog in itself.
So, to paraphrase George Costanza, are all blogs websites? Yes, they are, but are all websites blogs? I don’t think so, my friend.
