Dynamic Subdomain Creator Built for SEO parliamenttutors msg:4308284 2:32 pm on May 5, 2011 (gmt 0) I am creating a CMS in order to dynamically create individual profile pages for users. Is it recommended to create a single unique page for each profile, ie my-domain.com/profile0001 The alternative is populating a bunch of different subdomain folder with the same profile. I would use rel=canonical on identical profile pages. To make things more clear, the conflict is creating my-domain.com/profile0001 vs. location.my-domain/filter1/001 location.my-domain/filter2/215 (using rel=canonical) *215 and 001 are identical pages

I would personally stick with one unique page where I could stick with one unique page ... It sounds like you're creating possible issues you don't really need to create by going the subdomain route, and imo, the easiest way to keep from having to fix some of the issues you're pointing out as possible is to not create them in the first place. parliamenttutors msg:4308298 3:06 pm on May 5, 2011 (gmt 0)
THanks for the reply. I'm definitely going to subdomain route. A subdomain will be created for each city. The question was whether to populate the subdomain folders with the profiles or to 301 redirect to the profile page. Need more clarification?

No, subdomain(s) or not, I'd consolidate all pages with a 301 ... But (maybe I do need more info) why not eaxmple.com/city/profile and then you would only have the one to worry about, right?

There's also a subject filter or folder So I want all the profiles to populate the relevant folders, for example: chicago.my-domain.com/Algebra/Profile-001 chicago.my-domain.com/Geometry/Profile-001
