    atm I have a sub-domain linking of my original which brings in the main traffic

    I was wondering does it lessen your chances to hit the search engine higher up the list because of a sub-domain like "blogs.yahoo.com"

    The advantages I can think off -
    build on what you have because when traffic hits the blogs the alexa ranking for it overall it going even better traffic is going both ways

    disadvantage -
    whos going to remember that long name - nobody but the main source of traffic will come from google so in a way it doesn't matter

    what are your thoughts, sub-domain or no sub-domain

    Subdomain is considered as separate domain in Google, so you can utilize sub domain
