SEO Best Practices – domains – subdomain(s)
I want to create some blogs using wordpress
but my content/topics will be entirely different each other
For example the topics will be about programmes coding, foods, stories or films
Because the topics will have different audience I have to seperate the content as subdomains or domains
Having seperated main domains is the best way to do that but is expensive.
If I choose to have subdomain for each topic in a main domain name I will have low cost but may will harm the SEO Rank of the main domain
If I put all topics in the same domain by using categories I will have integrated SEO Rank but users will be confused and site will become to bloated (eventually harm the SEO Rank)
I search in google about using subdomain or not. A lot of specialist – professionals in SEO argued with this issue in general terms
What is your suggestion/opinion about this in my case ?
Separate subdomains per topic are not possible at WordPress.com, unless you have separate blogs for each topic, each with a paid plan, and each with a mapped domain.
We have some general recommendations at https://en.support.wordpress.com/seo/
If you want to focus on SEO, its suggestion to choose on one categories, or from those categories, which ones its your passion. This is important so that you can optimise the topics.
But if you want to create blog with subdomain, such as : coding.yourdomain.com, food.yourdomain.com, or stories.yourdomain.com, its recommended to choose self hosted for the best result.
