I have a site with PR 5 hosted on a particular server if i wanna have a subdomain is it necessary to have the subdomain also uploaded on the same server where the main site is uploaded to get immediate advantage of the PR ...

Thanking in anticipation ...

You won't get any immediate PR advantage. And as someone who has used subdomains a great deal in the past, I'd say right now (if they share an IP) using subdomains might hurt you.

But to answer your question, no you do not have to actually upload a separate site to create a subdomain. You can use can simply map a subdomain to a pre-exisiting sub directory.

or not - depends on a lot of things.
Using canonicals [google.com] is not generally bad.
Far away from any immediate pr advantage though.

thanks ....

i mean if my site is widgets.com hosted on a particular server say X now i want to have a subdomain hello.widgets.com ...
now is it necessary to upload the sub-domain also on the X server to get PR Advantage ....

Beacuse i think when we do that your pages are crawled faster and also u get the PR soon....

rather than having on a different server and mapping it to the widgets.com IP ....

I hope i am clear what i wanna say :)

NO PR ADVANTAGE!

If you don't get links to the subdomain, the site will never get listed.
If you get links to it, it's the same like setting up a site widgets.com and one example.com.

>rather than having on a different server and mapping it to the widgets.com IP

That's irelevant - a dns entry is a dns entry - wether it's for a subdomain or for a new top domain.
