    Got a question..
    Does subdomains can rank as good as normal .com domain? in terms of seo..
    And is subdomain considered as brand new domain non attached to the main domain in any link value or it takes some juice from the main domain as well ?

    Wanted to do some keyword testing, but it would be a lot cheaper just to buy one short .com and create on it 100subdomains then buying 100 .infos -

    Anyone can confirm that subdomains can get ranked as good as normal domains?

    Thanks!

    Well blogspot is established and have some kind of trust,
    but anyone else can confirm this when using their own domain?

    I'd try and get an exact match domain (com/net/org) before I'd try ranking a subdomain off a (weak) domain - other than wordpress/blogger or something like that.

    I just want to test like 200keywords whatever they are able to rank high , and to register for each of them .com would be costly , so Instead I will create on subdomains and see how it goes.


    So Guys that's Confirmed that Subdomain ranks as good as normal domain?

    Saw this thread
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/72794-domain-vs-subdomain-question.html

    And like 5 guys said that google treats subdomains as folders now!
    So That means that actually subdomains doesn't works as great as domains?

    If this is the case then blogger.com, wordpress.com and other site offering subdomains might not worth it to use in order to compete with other sites targeting same niche using a domain?
