We're considering switching to a custom domain so that our address will be blog.ourcompany.com instead of ourcompany.wordpress.com.
I was told that since it will be on the same domain as our website (www.ourcompany.com) that Google would assess it the same way it would as if it were actually part of our website. In other words, traffic to the blog will be seen as traffic to the website, new content will be seen as new content to our website.
Is this true?
The blog I need help with is wsrb.wordpress.com.
