Naming the subdirectory, blog vs content

Hello,

I have an ecommerce site and am setting up Wordpress as my CMS. I plan to have on there: buying guides, quick tips, news, new product announcements, and other non article type content (with the new cms features available).

I am stuck between naming the subdirectory. ( I need to have a subdirectory name due to other software on the site).

I've narrowed my options to:

site.com/blog/%post-name%

site.com/content/%post-name%

wondering if anyone has thought about this, and is it better to stick to naming it 'blog' for seo purposes. or is content the way to go now that wordpress is more of a cms.

Thanks!

i don't like the word blog myself and try to avoid it myself on a commercial site.

hi,
its really does not matter what you are naming to your directories if it is of varied interest. If you want to make a section where you can publish tips, news and articles you can choose a name as per your wish. It may be a blog, news, articles, tipsandguide, etc.

regards

In my views, you can avoid both and try to use following:

%category%/%post%/

This will help you in doing SEO in better manner.
