Hello all,

Thanks for participating in this forum.. great content!

I’ve got a question about how best to structure web content for SEs in general. Suppose you have a website for family related issues. There is currently one website with a section for relationship advice and a section for parenting. Now you want to expand these two areas to much more content.

Is it:

a) Better to keep this extended content all under one domain in one website (in sections) as it has gained some authority/reputation already?

or

B) Branch out the extended content into two external websites (separate domains) and make sure they are connected properly (links to all other sites)?

From an SEO point of view, which one is better, a network of linked sites (i.e. larger footprint) or all content on one domain (be THE authority)?

Thanks a lot for your help. I appreciate all comments.

Thanks for your answer,Jill. How would sub domains affect SEO? If I kept it all under one domain and created subdomains. I.e. relationships.mysite.com and parenting.mysite.com. Would that be beneficial, or should everything kept under www.mysite.com?
thanks again for your reply,

All depends how you link them in with the other site urls in your navigation.

It isn't an SEO issue and is fine either way.
