I currently have a site that ranks in top 10 for quite a few competitive keywords. It has about 700 pages in the index. It has quite a few static pages and also articles section which I use wordpress for article management stuff.
I am currently in the redesign phase of the website and am having difficulties deciding whether to code the full site into Wordpress or use a CMS like drupal or joomla. I would rather use wordpress due to the existing articles on the site in wordpress.
But the question I have is, if I do use wordpress, how can I make Google to think that this site is NOT a blog? Because the website is actually not a blog itself. I am sure Google will look at sites differently if it categorizes it as a "blog" and also how it shows up in Google News. I am not sure if Google's algo will alter the rankings if it does categorize it as a blog.
NO it doesn't consider it as a blog at the moment. The site is static and articles is just 1 part of the site. But the way the new site is going to look, it's going to push the articles a lot more on the site that's why I'm worried if i use wordpress for everything, it might categorize it as a blog
