Hi Guys, we plan on building a subdomain called giveaways.domain.com, and launch giveaways. The main site is about gadgets. Can this potentially hurt the main site in anyway with SEO? It`s on a subdomain, so i expect Google to treat it separately.
Casey White: I mean it`s not a problem, but kind of weird. The way I think of subdomains is that they can act as their own website if you decide to spin them off in the future. Like if I was a major brand but have an industry that doesn`t warrant their own website I would make that industry a subdomain of the main brand website. So I would ask myself, can giveaways be it`s own business? If not, might be better to make it a directory. Either way your fine.
