    I have a company blog and was wondering if blog.domain.com/blog-post-title as a subdomain or domain.com/blog/blog-post-title is better for seo rankings for mydomain.com? (I don't really care about the blog's ranking) Does it make a difference?

    I would go for domain.com/blog because more backlinks to your domain.com will push up your domain authority.

    I just created a blog last month with 20k posts, got like 18k indexed in 1 week, and my entire ecommerce hosted on my domain.com/ecommerce got boosted. Get ~20% more search traffic (on the ecommerce) just creating the blog. I guess this is all about domain authority.

    right, subdomain is like a different domain, so use a directory and you will boost both results..

    Keep in mind you should keeping your posts relevant.

    Example if the company sell potatoes dont post about cars.

    As I say before Big G is not a search engine, but a relevancy engine,,,

    so blog.mydomain.com won't affect my rankings for mydomain.com at all?

    That sucks because the only way to use custom domains for platforms like posterous or tumblr, you need to point it to a domain or subdomain.

    Guess it's back to wordpress!
