    Sub domains with Google


    Hi,

    Can this be done without getting kicked by Google? And still get a good ranking?

    Example

    domain name
    www.portal.com

    and then have sub domain name sites with different content eg www.fishing.portal.com and www.sports.portal.com of that domain name. Is that cool with the search engines or is stretching the limits?

    thanks heaps
    Christian

    There is no problem in using subdomains - it is a viable and value exercise.

    However, in practice you need to have a sizable amount of information per subdomain or you merely have a bunch of standalone resources that gain nothing substantial because they have no merits to acquire links of quality on their own.

    So if you are doing this to enhance you link pop because you can't seem to enhance your link pop on the root... it will not help, and likely do more harm than good.
