Subdomains or Subfolders OK??? 7 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
Can anyone please advise if it's ok to use Subdomains or Subfolders & if so which is the one to use?

Registering domain names is a very expensive exercise especially when you have lots of them & have to renew them as well.
I just want to have one domain & use subs but don't know how this will work with the Search engines?

Please could some people comment especially those of you that may be doing them this way.
Same question for Adsense sites too.

Matt could you chip in on this too please?

Thanks everyone.

Howard.

Howard, it is better to build a lot of blogs on sub-domains or restrict the sub-domains to the same niche of your primary domain.

Sub-domains rank the same way as any primary domain would do. In fact, it is the individual permalink pages that rank for the keywords long before the domain gets ranked.

So, buy 1 domain, build a lot of blogs in sub-domains to it.

Carty..

Ok so That really means to have a main domain in your niche & then have subs for sub blogs of "that" niche. If I understand correctly.

Whereas whtat I was wanting to do was this... As I already have a domain called www.theartikle.com I was hoping that I could have subdirectories each hosting a blog under that called Ie. Cooking or Golf... etc. So is that idea no good then?

So you would have a main blog on www.theartikle.com and then create niches like www.theartikle.com/blog1 www.theartikle.com/blog2... etc?
