Hey guys:
Am planning on starting a blog to support one of my money sites, via use of a subdomain off of the money site in question. Does anybody else do this and if so, what have your results been like?
Besides linking back to the money site from the blog, what else should I be doing? Thoughts? Cheers.

    I would personally not use a subdomain but instead use a subfolder. So www.yoursite.com/blog versus blog.yoursite.com. Up until a few years ago this would be absolutely essential as the thinking was Google treated subdomains separately and therefore SEO juice didn't flow between subdomains. Today, I'm not sure if that's the case.

    Still, I just like the structure of folders much more than subdomains. In my opinion, subdomains should only be used for specific reasons like completely different product lines.

    This practice is quite common. Think of your blog posts as mini-landing pages. Make sure they are optimized for keywords. Make sure there's some type of call to action to get them to go where you want them to go.

    Yeah my idea is to blog about the products that I am promoting, with links inside blog posts to the static product pages on my site.
    Another advantage to the blog as part of the site is that my content will be updated much quicker so hopefully I can increase my crawl rate.
