SEO, subdomains vs domain extensions?
If I own abc.com, is it best to have a page that states www.newpage.abc.com or www.abc.com/newpage? In terms of SEO, does it matter? If so, which is better?8 months ago - 2 answers
www.abc.com/newpage will get higher in seo with a claim that newpage is page or category or a topic
but subdomain newpage.abc.com will be considered as a sub site of abc.com and will get domain rankings separated from abc.com as it be considered as a separate site from abc
that means if you are using a sub domain, the sub domain should be different topic from what your main site is about. Else the search results will be all jumbled up
although the path to the subdomain will still be the same and it just matter to how link subdomain,
you can check its effects on yahoo answers
yahoo.com/answers is rarely shown up in google compared to answers.yahoo.com
Subdomains www.newpage.abc.com this denotes that the hosting is temporary or shared.
Domain extensions www.abc.com/newpage this denotes that internal page of website.
In terms of seo domain extension is better than subdomains
