WordPress Kindergarten: Posts vs. Pages

According to WordPress.com , the two distinct differences between posts and pages is that:

Posts are entries listed in reverse chronological order on the blog home page or on the posts page if you have set one in Settings > Reading.

While pages are:

Pages are static and are not listed by date. Pages do not use tags or categories. An About page is the classic example.

For most sites you would put an about us or contact us information on a page and then use posts for content that you would update more often. If your site is a personal blog the posts are your blog. For business sites you could use posts for information about different products or news about your business or you could just list all your services on one static page.

That is pretty much it:

Post=chronological entries
Page=static page
