Sub Folders With Unique Blogs Vs Sub.domains?
Posted 01 May 2011 - 05:17 AM
Little bit of a qaundary here.
Set up a website to promote all our published niche books.
Trying to ensure that we achieve the best SEO for this site
Any suggestions as to what would work better with Google and the other SE's
sub.domain | sub.directory | sub.folder
or the other option I am considering is creating a separate folder on the root and set up an entire blog for that niche with a number of categories so in essence it would read
How would Google and the other SE's view this in terms of on page SEO and ranking terms?
Appreciate any help.

I've worked with some hosting companies and their sub domains were a headache to setup and manage. It can also make it more difficult to make backups as you might have directories all over the place.
And appearance can make things look more professional for your users, and can make it look better thought out or spamy looking. Personally, for your domain I think sub directories look much nicer and flow better than sub domains. For your domain sub directories "read" better:
"Discover secrets for dog training." vs "Dog training discover secrets for."

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
What's your thoughts on individual blogs attached to the root domain.
It would be easier to set up parent and child categories.
Would the SE's look favorably on this setup?

They don't care either way.

Thanks for your reply.
A quick one if I may?
You seem to be an expert in this field.
Looking at Google's Adwords search results for example dog training spits out
keywords such as:
house training house 74,000 search results
each of these getting huge searches per month
Now search results for dogtrainingtips are much higher than dog training tips
same with house training house
What is the best way to set up a Titles and H1 intro for a page with say the house training house, which frankly doesn't make much sense to me.
Do Google look at the search as house.... training ... house with (....) representing some other words in between.
I can't see that setting up a page with something to do with dog training and house training house is going to make any sense
like... frankly I can't seem to find any words that would match with the house training house.
Why do Google give such high search results for this term, which seems utterly stupid to me.
What I really need to understand
How would you use a key phrase like this in a page with correct Title and H1 intro to get best Search Engine rankings?

You need to use your common sense when looking at any keyword research and disregard those ones that don't make any sense.
