    I'm thinking of setting up a few wordpress mu sites, to be used as part of a blog farm, the recommendation used to be to put the blogs on subdomains, as some search engines treat each subdomain as a seperate domain. However I don't believe many still do this, so is it worth the extra hassle? or are directories just as effect these days, if subdomains have been "degraged".

    As of about a year ago Google started treating subdomains in the same way as subdirectories in the way they handle them within the index, so there's no longer any Google SEO advantage to either method.

    Thanks that's what I thought, so as directories are easier to setup on most hosts, looks like that's the way to go.

    Anybody any ideas on a sensible number of blogs on a domain?

    Think it's MultiUser but basically it allows running several blogs on one install with potentially different users for each etc.
