    Hey dudes O_O
    I have made a site that uses sub domains, LOTS of subdomains i thought as google treets them as diff domains to the main 1, i thought google would index every page.
    can you comment on if you think its going to work or if its the crappest idea ever??
    heres my site: emozmusic.com click on recent searched and you will see the urls of the search engine are using subdomains with the thing the person search in it. understand me??? you can also try searching on it.. it makes a FAKE subdomain :)

    I don't really know what you're trying to do here, it's not adding value. Because each subdomain is treated as a different site, you're losing ranking potential as far as content is concerned. Internal links are always good to have.

    It would be better to have your site as yoursite.com/blog/page-content rather than blog.yoursite.com/page-content

    Using a subdomain would only be beneficial if you're throwing up "mini-sites" with unrelated content. Like dogs.yoursite.com or houses.yoursite.com

    Hope this helps!

    If you have both and the same content, it's duplicate content. I'd focus on keeping categories from the root domain (yoursite.com/category/content-here) to maximize SEO and reap the benefits.

    If it's relevant, add a ton of content using the above method. Also, if you haven't already, create a sitemap and submit it to Google. You can use Google Webmaster Tools to view problems with pages, as well as the status of your indexing/sitemap submission.
