If my site is (www|mysite|com) and I have a wordpress blog mapped as (blog|mysite|com) is that good or bad for SEO? Or doesn't it matter....?
I would imagine it's better than mysite|wordpress|com - correct?
Google used to consider subdomains as a separate site - but I was under the impression Google had changed this, based on articles I've read online. Looks like Google now considers subdomain links as internal links now...
My main problem is, my client's site is built on classic ASP technology, and wants a Wordpress blog added, which is PHP technology. I thought the easiest way to do this, and the most inexpensive, would be to use the Wordpress domain mapping where I just add a CNAME record to my host account (blog|mysite|com) and point it to mysite|wordpress|com - this would be a whole lot easier and faster than changing hosts and changing technology at this point (especially consider the site needs to go live in short order). But I don't want this to be bad for his SEO.
And suggestions appreciated.
