    Hey guys just want to ask your suggestions. I want to add an additional subdomain blog on my server. But I am getting trouble selecting the best subdomain options.

    Which of the two is ideal and good for SEO?
    Code:
    yourdomain.com/subdomainblog
    or
    Code:
    subdomainblog.yourdomain.com
    Thanks:D

    I read somewhere to do the subdomain like if your keyword was "money"

    money.yoursite.com/money

    the thing I read said that works really well for some seo

    It depends a lot on why you are doing this.

    As I understand it, a true subdomain such as sub.yourdomain.com will be considered to be almost a seperate domain and will need it's own backlink profile, whereas the other way yourdomain.com/sub (which is a directory) will benefit from the sites existing link profile.
