Subdomains confuse search engines & searchers
Did you know that if you own www.mywebsite.com, you also own:
- and anythingelse.mywebsite.com?
Each of these is a subdomain of mywebsite.com. You might think – and many web designers do think – that subdomains are a nice way to organize your website. People often put the company blog on blog.mywebsite.com, the product catalog and shopping cart on store.mywebsite.com, and job listings on career.mywebsite.com.
