    Question Subdomain Vs Subfolder SEO

    Hey everyone!

    I have started SEO of a new Job Portal. I am confused how to create its backlinks, either by making subdomain like or by subfolder. Same thing apply to blogs.

    would anyone suggest me?

    I am not 100% sure that I understand the question... Do you mean, you don't know where to host your Jobs and Blog sections? If so, I usually go with the subfolder option: Content that is able to attract links should be put in the /subfolder to "help" grow the authority of the main domain... While there have been a lot of back and forth on this (and Google implementing changes to how they treat subdomains), I've seen many times how the rankings of the home page improves once you move a heavy-linked-to section to the subfolder... I'd assume that still works
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end
