    Ok, so I have a website that offers classifieds services. There is the blog section too attached, though this is not Adsense optimized at all.

    Now I'm getting about 3k pageviews a day, mostly coming from my blog (my articles are good) but only a small part are classifieds views, about 500/day (1/6 of the total pviews).

    I'm now thinking to detach the blog section, hosting it on a subdomain (e.g. blog.mywebsite.com) so I can make it adsense-friendly. Would this impact my main domain SEO though? Say that blog.mywebsite.com will become big, would mywebsite.com benefit from it? Or would I be "stealing" traffic from my own website?

    Thanks guys

    From everything I have read on here its better to install a separate wordpress blog under website.com/blog instead of using a subdomain like blog.website.com.
