Im going to buy one domain which I will make sure to have good content and all the bells and whistles yadda yadda... I was thinking of using subdomains to create other sites aswell for example the main page will be a blog on whatever while another subdomain will be on fashion (for example) or something like that. The question here is - will google bot pick up these subdomains and list them individualy - is it possible for subdomains to be ranked like normal domains done on search engines?
or should I buy other domains and if so why is that better then using subdomains?
But to answer the question, Google treats subdomain exactly like full domains, so it is certainly possible to get them listed in the results.
On the other hand, they are less easy to remember than a simple domain.com - and many directories (and others) will not link to them, treating them as 'deeplinks'.
You could also buy other domains. But success will be more likely if you concentrate your content, marketing, incoming links and visitors on one site
But good luck, whatever you decide ;)
I've noticed large companies like Microsoft may dominate most of the top 10 through the use of subdomains. Would this be another possible benefit to using subdomains? Is it harder or easier to get a subdomain in the top 10 if you're alredy there for your homepage?
