I have a website which references places to travel to in the world. Those places are (of course) grouped by countries.
Here is an example of an actual URL of my website:
I am wondering if it would be better, in terms of SEO, to have the countries separated in subdomains:
I know subdomains are considered by Google as different websites (see the comments), so I am considering the 2 options:
- separating would mean also separating the pagerank and benefits of links to the website
- but separating would enable me to create a "web" or related websites (all related to travel and all) that link and benefit to each other
I am only asking about SEO here, I know there are other questions raised by this possibility (user experience, administration... even password completion by web browsers)
