I have my newly launched website at
www.slicify.com (redirects to a secure subdomain).
I currently have a separate blog on WordPress:
slicify.wordpress.com for a couple of reasons:
- I don't really want to mix my site code (it's a complex ecommerce site written in ASP.Net) with blog code, for ease of maintenance etc.
- WordPress is already great at blogs - seems silly to reinvent the wheel by trying to integrate blog functionality into my site
However is keeping my blog on a separate domain going to hurt me in terms of PageRank or traffic?
FWIW: while it's early days, I can see from Google Analytics that a good deal of referral traffic is already coming from my WordPress site to my main site, so at least that seems to be drawing potential users in.
