Blog – Web Log

A ‘blog’ or ‘web log’ is a term that refers to a web page that provides a series of published items such as articles, news, videos, images etc. Some website owners use the term ‘news feed’ or ‘news page’ when referring to a blog page. Having a blog on your website is a good way to provide your visitors with related news and topics for your business and community.

Most blog’s provide an archiving facility where visitors are able to view past articles and content in an orderly fashion as well as find related content to the blog entry they are currently reading by the use of blog tags.

Cache

A cache is a space where visited web pages are stored within your computer usually on a temporary basis. A cache will allow you to load a web page faster as the data (information) is already stored on your computer from the last visit to the same website and therefore doesn’t require pulling all the information from the websites server.

If you have made recent changes to your website and can’t see them then clearing your cache is the first step.
