    I've never used subdomains before and was wondering if they in any way would have an impact on SE spiders and ultimately my rankings. Any thoughts on this?

    Nope!

    Google infact Likes Sub Domains. They Work better than naming ur files after the keyword that u r targeting.

    Subdomains are a good quick way to make you look like a big company. The original idea was that subdomains were different computers in the company's infrastructure. Notice how almost all government sites are split into subdomains.

    Since subdomains imply big rich data stores, Google will eat up your subdomain strategy.

    No, subdomains do not hurt rankings, they are actually somewhat preferred.

    You'll have got the picture by now, but I confirm great success with subdomains on one site in particular. As well as being an additional keyword opportunity, it looks like SEs (Google certainly) treat them like separate domains - so they follow and value links between te subdomains too.

    I was lucky to get an early adopter deal with a host that gives me unlimited subdomains on unlimited domains [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Potential downsides to be aware of are based around the technicalities of how your host handles subdomains. In some cases, setting up a subdom means you have to duplicate stats and some scripts - and SSI won't work across subdoms.

    no. "www" is just a subdomain itself. gooogle doesn't care what your submdomain is..

    Excessive crosslinking of subdomains w/o (a lot of) other incoming links could be detrimental..but..you will find tons of sites doing this and doing fairly well with it in some cases..so..ymmv.
