Hmmmm. Interesting that you would say that. I have 16 posts so far on my home page, 1 on Articles, with 3 subpages, one 'post' each, and 1 other (Studies) which will get subpages if I ever find any more studies. Oh yeah there's a Hoof Boots page too which I forgot about which was mainly created by reader contributions/comments.
The rationale I am using is that the "blog", the homepage entries, are content created by me. The "Pages" (articles and studies) are just copies of articles written by other people, and are like "reference" material.
Isn't this what you are describing? The articles are long so it may seem that I am dumping lots of stuff on pages but it's only 4 entries, to date. The length of the articles is exactly the reason i was looking to split it up into subpages.
The issue with search engines is interesting. I have specifically noticed that I am getting hits from searches that people are running that directs them to the CONTENT that is buried deep, deep in the article (and I wasn't even aware that content was there till that happened) of the pages but not the titles, so somehow the search engines are finding them. In particular the Hoof Boots page gets a lot of hits that way.
It seems to be working. Am I doing something wrong?
PS - the edit/copy/paste of comments, that's just how I redid my pages. If I do that with comments will the commenter's name, avatar, and so forth go with?
