Difference Between Sub Domain and Sub Folder

Postby top9 » Fri Jan 19, 2007 1:37 am

Generally serach engine consider Sub Domain as an unique address within the existing domain name and crawl it independently to the main domain name such as my.domain.com but in case of sub folder serach engine will consider it as a part of the original web site and generally it needn't to add links to the search engines as the main page get crawled it will get listed gradually if it is linked from the home page or other pages within the site. If you are desired to create a site not relevent to the main home page it will better to create sub domain for your site and you should add it independently to the search engines to crawl it properly. But in case of folder you dont need to do such thing

If you put it in site map search engines will find it and if you have rss feed they will find it. No need to submit it if you have links on site to it either.

Google has now made it clear that domain name is not as important as the SSL certification of the domain. If you want to rank higher in google SSL certification can help.

This subdomain & sub-folder had created a lot of confusion when we wanted to move our blog from subdomain to subdirectory. I read some blogs and finally suggested to move it to the sub directory.

The sub-domain blog was getting traffic but for most of the keywords, it wasn't ranking and also the subdomain traffic was not considered with the main domain. After moving to the sub-directory, the blogs started ranking quickly and the traffic was increased as well.
