Structure Links For SEO, State Of Content Marketing, Promoted Tweets, Speedlink 6:2015

by DiTesco


Hi everyone, hope you all had a great and productive week! One thing that has been coming up over and over in the SEO sphere is whether or not you should use sub-domains or sub-folders. In addition, there are also some other questions that often come out about link sturcture. In this week’s whiteboard friday, Rand tackles three of them:

  • Should I put subsections of my site on subdomains or in subfolders?
  • Should I use a rel canonical or a 301 redirect to move content on a separate site over to my main domain?
  • If I have multiple websites all linking back to my main site, does that help or hurt my SEO?

I’m so glad that you keep up with the White Board Friday series. I always find them interesting but I’m reluctant to subscribe to any more emails or feeds. Too much information can be overwhelming I much prefer reading your “Speedlinks”.

As always, I find your shout-outs a good resource and I appreciate your inclusion of Don Purdum’s guest post on my blog. Now, I’m off to share.
