Hello,

I am almost a nut when it comes to SEO. I have a subdomain in our primary domain where we hosted a wordpress blog. It has been over many months now that only 11 url out of the 46 (and growing) have been indexed.

I have tried adding urls of all blog posts to google for indexing but all this in vain. My google webmaster account still shows only 11 urls out of the 46 urls in the sitemap have been indexed.

I will appreciate if you kindly help me on this.

Thank you,

Bottom Line - subdomains dont get rank or traffic - go with the main url and work that area more content more relevants ....

How sure are you on this? Majority of google products can be accessed using sub domains.

I all honesty - subdomains aren't the jist here - youre post is why you asked to question - my answer is very clear - you name pages of the root domain not make subdomains in blogs to dominate search engines- that wont happen ever --- its a google piracy trate the hate .... stick to the basis ... :)

I don't think the situation is all that black and white. Subdomains definitely CAN rank if they get good backlinks - the same as any other kind of hostname or URL. And the way to get more pages indexed is often to get more backlinks for those pages, which means more PageRank.

I agree with above statement clearly back links count in ses - it is still alot harder to get PR juice to those domains - am sorry - but it is the factor ... :)

Not my current experience, Aaron. If a subdomain has good content, you can take it anywhere that a subdirectory would go.

It used to be different, but there have been significant changes in this area. The details of how a URL is written have little effect on ranking these days. And why should it, after all?

Confirm!

I have a subdomain that generate almost 100% of traffic for the whole domain. Surely almost 50 backlinks from wikipedia counts for its credibility.
