I've been reading these threads on sub-domains vs dirs looking for answers ... and now I'm even more confused. :)
I've made a google search but haven't found a good answer for what I'm attempting to do. So here goes.
I have an old domain, and I'd like to create stand alone mini sites on it. Like yahoo.com/flickr instead of flickr.com.
I'm concerned about linking. I suspect other sites don't like linking to sub dirs. They'd prefer linking to domains or sub-domains.
So I thought of creating a sub-domain, and redirecting them to my sub dir.
The problem is I hear google treats sub-domains like new sites? .. Are my efforts to boost PR in vain if I go with a sub-domain as opposed to sub-dir?
How should I proceed to create mini sites on my old domain and what structure should I adopt?
I'm basically trying to give a boost to my mini-sites by hosting it on my old domain, is that the right way?
