    How To link My Site To My Blog - for seo


    hi

    i have a site. (like domain.com)
    i opened a blog on subdomain (like blog.domain.com).
    how do i link between them for seo?

    from blog posts to homepage of site?
    from homepage of site to homepage of blog?
    from sidebars? footers? navigation bars?
    how many links?
    how often?
    etc. etc. etc.

    or is it enough just to link from the site to the blog and google will see what it needs to see?

    thanks

    There is no recipe for that.
    you do not need to think about Google. Not you and not any one here (that can't see even your site and blog) can tell you what will be the best from Google side.

    Put the links in that way that will help the users and that's it. If there is no link that will help the users - Don't put any link.
    If your next question is - What and where this "super link" will help the user? then you need to learn a little bit SEO (2013) and how websites works. Try to make some research about this stuff.

    if your blog.site.com gets high pagerank and different ip google will see it as different site and will think you are getting backlins from different site (well thats what i think but i might be wrong) I have UK based site and i have checked my competitors (big boys) and thats what they have done so i am guessing thats is the reason but like i said imight be wrong i am sure @testok will know better about this.

    it might be for another reason. that's the case with my site.

    my site is ASP, hosted with a company that specializes with ASP hosting.
    the blog (which is wordpress/php), is hosted with a different hosting company that specializes with wordpress.

    so i have diffreent ip's, not because of seo.

    as far as i unserstand, if the tld (domain.com) is the same, google will see it as one.
    i'd love to hear members' opinion.

    thanks

    Not when it is on the same domain it wont

    i have a site. (like domain.com)
    i opened a blog on subdomain (like blog.domain.com).
    I would have one link from your main site to your blog in your navigation. Then I would write blog posts on various topics, and when there is relevant information on your main site, link to it from the blog posts.
    Also make sure you have the RSS feed accessible everywhere and submit the blog's RSS feed to feedburner and other RSS search engine sources.

    Have your RSS feed accessible on your main site (next to social share options), your blog, individual posts etc. Also on an email signature. Anywhere you might put your web address that is clickable, you should also include a link to your RSS feed.

    You might be right because when i check my competitors they published their blog page in 2009 and they are making over 350M turnover every year and i have done 10K on my first year

    use third party automation tool for marketing and can link the blog to the site. Or you can used the RSS feed for your blog feed to the site.
