Blog vs Website

Both of these are looks very much similar to each other. Like a blog, a website also has its domain. But there is a huge difference between the two.

A Blog is a journal on the web, which is updated on a regular basis and the functions of the blog is limited to sharing thoughts and ideas with readers, giving them a solution and advertisement. But, as you know there are many types of websites available on the internet like Shopping website i.e Amazon, News website i.e. Indian Express, Transactions, and payment website i.e. Paytm, Social networking website i.e. Facebook and also Blogging website i.e. Blogger. So you must be understood that the scope of a website is much wider compared to a blog and even many websites are running their own blog along with their website.
Blog have their prime characteristic that, a blog is updated on a regular basis but this characteristic doesn't apply to a website.
A website only runs on a domain but you can run a blog on either a domain or a sub-domain.
A blog needs reader engagement to build up, the most reader means more growth of blog, but a website doesn't need any readers engagement to survive on the web.
SEO of a website is much easier than of a blog.
Blogs are more friendly to search engines than a website.
