We have a site running on a main domain http://lightandspace.co.uk (60 indexed pages), and a blog running under the subdomain http://blog.lightandspace.co.uk (250 indexed pages)

I currently have them running under two Analytics profiles and two Webmaster profiles. Just so traffic figures don't get muddled, is this bad practice from an SEO point of view?

SEO is about making your site better for search engines. I don't see how you use analytics will directly affect that. – paulmorriss Apr 26 '12 at 12:10
My thought was that by having the blog split into a seperate webmaster profile the main site would not be getting the befit of google seeing regularly added content – sam Apr 26 '12 at 15:21
Google does not use the fact that you have analytics when updating its index. – paulmorriss Apr 26 '12 at 15:35

That's perfectly fine, your main domain and blog each have their own sitemaps and are uniquely verified domains so two domains in Webmaster Tools is fine and same with Analytics.
