it doesn't matter as much where the content is hosted.
what matters is that the hostnames for the main site and the blog are on the same domain and how urls are linked.

but the content never referred to its original domain? is that? means blog content never associated with the original domain, as blog is treated separately.

If your blog is hosted at wordpress dot com and not hosted on your own domain, that is correct. Your link to blog.example.com is redirecting visitors to the wordpress dot com domain.
It is pretty easy to move it all to your own site.

|When I used a site:blog.domain.com, it supply pages associated with the blog not with the original website. |
that's the way it works.
if you want to see the index for your main site you could do a search like:
or if the canonical hostname for your main site is example.com:
|as blog is treated separately |
if you treat your blog separately (with minimal or no interlinking) then google will also treat it separately, other than the minimal connection of the domain name.
a good example of this is blogspot, where all the subdomains are essentially islands of content with relatively little interlinking.
on the other hand craigslist uses cityname.craigslist.org hostnames which are all interlinked and google probably views craigslist.org as more of a unified site.
|Your link to blog.example.com is redirecting visitors to the wordpress dot com domain. |
if this is done correctly, there is no redirect - it happens in the domain name resolution where the DNS translates blog.example.com to an IP address.
the fact your blog's IP address is hosted by wordpress is about as irrelevant as your main site being hosted by godaddy (or whatever.)

very good explanation of my queries. But still I have a question on my mind. And that is, shall I get the benefit of blog traffic for my original domain i.e. www.123fjkdfj.com ? because as far as I have experienced that analytics treated both the traffic separately. I am very confused and seeing that blog's traffic is coming but it doesn't give benefit to my original domain. Previously, I ran my blog with html pages and those are associated with my original domain. Since then I separated my blog from my original domain, I can see my ranking going down and down.. So thanks a lot for the information you have shared, it helps me a lot. Thanks

Since Google treat sub domain as separate domains, it would make more sense to have good link from your blog contents to your main website. Doing this will help you get extra link juice and for good.
