Question: What would be the difference that make it a blog instead of just another website page in a different directory?
Answer: Technically, nothing. Blogs to Google are really just rapidly updating pages on a website. It does give special place to things placed in the /blog directory in my experience – but no proof here. Just hunches.
New, keyword heavy content is clearly rewarded. So what goes for the blogs goes for your entire website. Updating and expanding it frequently with NEW content will be rewarded! So start posting frequently, start issuing news releases, start blogging!
