I was wondering what you all thought about using a subdomain versus a subdirectory. Are their disadvantages or advantages to each. Any information is helpful.

Thanks Scott

Hi: The subdomain is better for SEO than subdomains, a subdomain is seemingly treated almost like a brand new domain in most cases, so a directory is a better choice if you have a well positioned domain.

Here some links you may like it:

Give subdomains a go I say. I changed from sub directories to subdomains on my old site: php.dtbaker.com.au web.dtbaker.com.au linux.dtbaker.com.au etc.. and results were crazy good for a while.
