Pages vs Posts?

Oct 9, 2008 at 8:04 PM
Hi, I am new to blogging so sorry if this is a dumb question. I want to right tutorial sized blog posts, would I be better off making them into "posts" or "pages"? My understanding is that posts generate a pingback to let other people know your blog has new information, so it has the potential to get more traffic as opposed to a static page which does not generate a pingback? Any tips or suggestions would be great, thanks!
