    Subdomians or New Domains


    hey all
    lets say you have a brand website (lets say something like Nike) that puts a good amount of its focus and content on brand of them product. Also they want to have an eCommerce store. Which one is beneficial from SEO point of view?

    A sub-domian like store.mybrand.com
    or
    a new domain like mybrandstore.com

    Search engine wise, both are same - because both will be considered as separate domains. Now to whether to have the subdomain or separate domain - it depends on the availability of the domain name. Like if we get some domain like brand-estore.com or brandestore.com, that is not a bad thing to have. Because, to me it is important that people should remember the URL of the estore as they manage to remember the brand. If we can have the domain that easy to remember and having the brand name in it - then according to me that is not a bad idea to have it.
