    sub domain or sub folder?


    Hello,

    We are working on a new site. The idea of the site is to have an ecommerce shop, but the homepage will be a content page, basically a blog page.
    My developer wants to have the blog page on a subdomain, so blog.example.com, because it will be easier to make a nice content page this way. I'm just worried that this will be bad for our SEO efforts. I've always thought it was better to use a sub folder rather than a subdomain. What are your thoughts?
