SBI Easy Blogs features allow you to integrate a full blown blog into your SBI website. The most important feature of Easy Blogs (EB) is it's ability to create an (RSS file) for syndication on the world wide web. With EB you can create up to 100 RSS feeds and that means up to 100 blogs. With Site Build It you can add them all to one domain name. Imagine what can be done with that?
The next most important feature of EB is it's content management system. EB automatically creates those all important archive pages. You can set the number of posts to appear on your blog. When your posts rotate off the bottom of the blog they don't just disappear they get archived.
