    Hi BlackHatters,

    I have a few (noob) questions related to starting a blog on a site. I just want to make sure I choose the best place to put the blog :)

    - Which url would be better for SEO or does this not have any effect?
    yourlinkcom/blog or blogyourlinkcom?

    - If I have a php, html 5.0 or anything else, is it good if I still install a wordpress site under the blog link (mentioned in the previous question) for my website? Or SHould it be in the same code as the original site? What is your experience with this?

    Thanks!

    Tom Hardy

    Well in my opinion, if you have a blog oriented business, go for the domain.com. If you have a business, which you are writing a blog for, go for business.com/blog

    It doesn't ultimately matter if you do your onsite SEO correctly( and a lot of other factors matter at the same time). Just my opinion. Others may disagree...

    Additionally if using WordPress use fancy permalinks not p=111 etc, you can incorporate keywords into the URL to aid SEO
