I've been reading up on the different ways to put my blogger posts into a webpage on my site, as a means to update content. And there doesn't seem to be a consensus on the best way to go about it.

Ideally, what I want to happen is to have my blog posts that you can see here: http://www.pooltees.com/blog/, populate the content on a page that has my normal website template applied, such as http://www.pooltees.com/blogtest.htm. In the end, it should look like this .jpg mockup I created: http://www.pooltees.com/sample.jpg

Iframes seemed to be a good idea, but then i learned the search engine spiders don't crawl them, or something along those lines.

What's the best, and easiest (hopefully they go hand-in-hand, but not usually) way to go about it, to get the desired result? Thanks in advance!

Is it possible to create an RSS feed from your blog? If so, then you could read that feed into the other page without the need for an iframe.

RSS is new to me, but I guess so. If I can pipe the RSS feed into my page where I want it displayed, will that content be picked up by search engines, and recognized as being a part of the page where I want it and not recognized as part of some outside blog page?

thanks.

Yes, because the feed comes in on the server side of things, so it's all built before it hits the browser (or the search engine crawler).

Note however that the engines, if they get wind of the same content on pooltees.com/blog, will think less of the content wherever it ends up being hosted, because it will be duplicated in two different locations. You should block bots from one of the two sources to prevent this happening.

thank for the insite!

on a related blog topic, someone just mentioned to me that Wordpress is a much simpler CMS method to use (for an amateur web designer like myself) than Blogger. any thoughts on that topic?

Thanks!

i now have a similar project whereby I need to update content on specific sections of the homepage with links to specific postings.

For the attached sample site design, I would need to use a blog CMS backend to update “upcoming events” and/or “events calendar”, “news”.

Here's a good example, http://www.professorqball.com/. If you look at the "Features>>" section in the middle of the page, it tends to show the first paragraph + pic, and a Read More... link for all the new articles that were posted. When use clicks on "Read More", they go to the actual page of that article within the website, which I'm pretty sure is fed by some blog CMS system.

Also, I need to do something similar with an Events Calendar feature, just like this site has http://ww.hoboken411.com/ towards the bottom of the left-hand navigation bar.

that being said, what's the best method to go about this? should i use blogger or wordpress? i want it to be as seemless as possible for a visitor to the site so they don't even know there's a blog feeding it on the backend (i.e. nothing in the url should indicate that). additionally i want it to be as easy for the content updater person to update the content using the blog CMS backend. thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
