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!

If ranking high in the search engines is your main plan for gaining good traffic, you're probably better off working with .com/net, the preferred top level domains (they seem to dominate page one for decent keywords). If you have a strong BH and backlink building plan to get the traffic, however, that can replace SERPs as a source for targeted visitors, and you can do well using free subdomains and cheap .info sites.

Google knows subdomains belong to the main domain. So i think you get the same within site penalty for links , also they dont get juice from the main domain. So in many ways you get the worst of both worlds.
