    Can sub-domains be SEO friendly?


    I want to launch a suite of websites. Each will concentrate on a specific segment of a common industry so will all the related.

    I could launch aaa.dotcom, bbb.dotcom etc which makes SEO easier, but I could also launch a primary domain with sub-domains such as aaa.primarydotcom, bbb.primarydotcom etc. This would be far cheaper and easier to manage, but would this make SEO that much harder for the sub-domains?

    There would be no difference in difficulty between these two. Subdomains are treated (for the most part) like completely separate domains in the eyes of search engines.

    Subdomains are considered as seperate websites. So you can use them for your seperate aaa, bbb as they are cheap. But you have to promote each one seperately.
