    OK, I have just started using sub-domains on a new project and would like to submit a page or two to Inktomi. Firstly, does Inktomi see these as normal domains? Do they get penalised by either Inktomi or other search engines like Google. Seem to remember someone saying they actually were liked by the search engines?

    anyone know for sure?

    If you mean subdomains as "yoursite.mysite.com", then I don't think it's possible. I could be really, really wrong though, so I want to know as well!

    You can go ahead and try it and if you don't like it or they don't like it, you can still switch the spider back out for a different url. THere is a 30-day grace period for this.

    I use subdomains on Inktomi for a lot of my sites and if the subdomain has a keyword in it Inktomi likes it. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] hint hint... I don't know about google yet because google hates me in general... The new sites were spidered and we will see.

    Thanks Core - good to know. But then who would use sub-domains without keywords in it? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Inktomi is fine with subdomains, via paid inclusion or otherwise. If you do use paid inclusion, they treat them as separate domains.

    Google is fine with them too. I have an education site and Google, Ink and Fast love it like a brother. Google spiders the main domain and subdomains twice a day on average.

    The way I do it is this - all the subdomains link back to the main domain, but not to each other and each subdomain has it's own links in and out, so they are not reliant on the links going to the main domain for PR, link pop, etc. That way there is no danger of them being seen as an attempt to manipulate algos.
