    Subdomain negatviely affects seo?


    I was doing research and apparently you shouldn't have subdomains like for example "blog.example.com", and I understand why. But I have an issue, I am doing on site seo and I am getting an "F" score for "Use cookie free domains" on GTMetrix.com but the problem is I can't fix this issue unless I use a subdomain but I don't want it to affect my seo. I have tried everything but no luck. What should I do?

    It has been a few years, but you can still find a Matt Cutts video out there where he states that Google is not concerned whether you use a subdomain or subdirectory to organize your website. I have found no issue myself using subdomains.

    There is no such negative impact on SEO if you are using subdomain

    Sub-domain never affects negatively on SEO. Previously sub-domains were treated as a different website and link juices are treated as coming from thirdparty websites, but now Google's algorithms are so strong that they can easily detect sub-domains and similar settings. Now sub-domains are treated as the pages on same domain. And it never affected SEO in negative way.
