Hi Harikrishna Patel!

The answer in your concern depends on a number of factors.

If you chose a subdirectory (, it might be easier because you don't have a full control in customizing the domain name system. This can result in on considering a blog hosting solution that is more separate from their primary sites or end up setting up a completely new domain for your blog.

If you chose subdomain (, it is said to be not advisable because it has some disadvantages in terms of needing to increase inbound links.

I provided you link that may help you decide which domain to use depends on your situation. Read the article for some guidelines on how to choose. Please see the link below.

Hope it would help you and good luck!

First of all, let me start by saying that it is always better to call in an SEO manager early in the development stage, so there is no need to make sometimes hard-to-implement tweaks afterwards.

From an SEO point of view, a site’s URL structure should be:

   1 Straightforward: URLs with duplicate content should have canonical URLs specified for them; there should be no confusing redirects on the site, etc.

   2 Meaningful: URL names should have keywords in them, not gibbering numbers and punctuation marks.

   3 With emphasis on the right URLs: SEO-wise, not all URLs on a site are of equal importance as a rule. Some even should be concealed from the search engines.

Here is what one can do to achieve an SEO-friendly site URL structure:
1. Consolidate your www and the non-www domain versions.
2. Avoid dynamic and relative URLs.
3. Create an XML Sitemap
4. Close off irrelevant pages with robots.txt
5. Specify canonical URLs using a special tag.
