Subdomain Combining...options And Advice
Posted 27 February 2009 - 04:31 PM
Obviously we'd like to combine them but the ecommerce does not lend itself well to non-shopping pages and articles so we need to leave it where it is.
Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to combine them while maintaining separate hosts or perhaps, a way to let the search engines know they're the same and actually one big site?

Assuming you've got some links on those www pages that are showing up for product terms have a good user friendly link that will shoot rabid visitors looking to buy right into the correct page of your store (and that's the way I'd recommend constructing those info pages even if were all on the www address) you're effectively getting two bites at the proverbial apple when the two pages end up competing with each other in the same SERP.

Most companies would pay good money to have that happen...

Then, assuming that you've done your job in relating your articles to your products and linking from non-ecommerce pages to appropriate ecommerce product sales pages, you have maximized your potential for making sales.
This can actually be an advantageous set up if you approach it with the right mindset.

In addition, if both pages were on the same subdomain, both would still be listed in the above scenario. The page that is currently listed #7 would be listed indented under the page at #5, i.e. it would be promoted.
All-in-all. then, you are not getting the best results possible with the current setup. However, you are getting pretty good results, as previous posters have pointed out.
If you wanted to improve the ranking of one of the pages, it may be possible to do so by modifying the current links between them. However, such differences may be marginal. You'd be better off concentrating on optimising the content of both pages and improving quality and quantity of the links to the page you wanted to rank higher.
