    I'm working on a blog and the server can create sub-domains on the fly, from its titles or its tags. What's the best use of this feature?
    If you'd had to make sub-domains to your blog, what you'd prefer:

    yourblog.com/title-of-the-post
    to become:
    title-of-the-post.yourblog.com

    or

    yourblog.com/tag/the-tag
    to be
    the-tag.yourblog.com/tag/

    ?

    i'm talking about a giant blog with tons of posts and tags.

    maybe tag.yourblog.com/titleofpost ?
    or yourblog.com/tag_titleofpost

    im not sure which a bot would interpret better.

    If I were you, I'd use http://tag.domain.com/post-title/
