What's the right way to submit a SUBdomain site to Google?
The normal routine that I follow with a regular site is that I put a file that I download from Google into the root folder and then after the site's verification, I make a sitemap.xml and also upload it into my public_html.
The thing is...I don't have a regular site (non subdomain site). I just have a few subdomains as my sites. Of course, I do have root public_html, but I also have there my folders for subdomain sites.

you can't really "submit a site to google" but you can use the "add a site" button in GWT to add a subdomain to your GWT account.

the sitemap.xml file for each subdomain go in the document root directory of the virtual host for that subdomain.
in your case, these would go in the appropriate subdirectories of public_html.
