    Subdomains these days
    I haven't looked into this in a while, and I was thinking about it. Do sub domains easily pull PageRank from the main domain, or is it still easier to establish the "authority" of a new website section by simply having it in a subfolder of the main domain?

    I ask because I always struggle getting a .htaccess file to behave properly in a sub folder, while I have no issues on a sub domain.

    As far as .htaccess behaving appropriately in a subfolder, keep in mind that .htaccess in a pare t folder would override that in a sub-folder.

    As far as your direct question, I still do subfolders, I still myself see subdomains seperate..so I'd think so do search engines.

    I don't use sub-domains and can't remember where my bias against them came from. Maybe following posts will change that.

    As far as .htaccess in sub folders goes I have no problems. Shoot me a PM when you get an example problem and I might can help.
