Yes. Whatever the web root for the subdomain is where you would put a robots.txt for that subdomain's contents. It will not affect the root domain and the root domain's robots.txt will not affect the subdomain.

Create a subdomain foo.bar.com via your control panel or do it manually on your Linode server. Then, set your DNS at Namecheap to point to your server IP when someone request foo.bar.com. In the public_html of foo.bar.com on your Linode server, you can create an .htaccess file: Redirect 301 http://bar.com/foo

You could look into doing a "frame redirect". It is also sometimes called "web forwarding" or "masked redirect". In that case the redirect server issues content like this: <html> <frameset rows="100%,*" border="0"> <frame src="http://www.example.com/my-page.html" noresize frameborder="0"> </frameset> </html> This causes ...

I would go with topic.example.com or example.com/topic and not a separate domain for each topic. Basically, use the silo approach. This will allow each topic to rank on its own without being too diluted. Also, having your keywords in the domain does not proved very much SEO value now a days. P.S. While topic.example.com or example.com/topic are both sound ...

Without having to specify a domain in the circumstance that multiple domains point to the website root or that a production .htaccess rules can be applied to: RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.*)\.ANYdomain\.com [NC]

I would pick subdomain if it only needs to separate logical parts of a site. Imagine car site, you writing about cars and maybe you have classified ads, one day you realize that you can copy this to be also a motorcycle site so you use a subdomain , or auto parts also a subdomain, but if you want to separate ie make of car to a subdomain it wont be good ...

mod_proxy can be configured from .htaccess to serve content from a different server or host as a subfolder. You would use a rewrite rule with the [P] flag (for proxy) in your .htaccess to do so: RewriteRule ^/subdomain/(.*) http://subdomain.example.com/$1 [P] ProxyPassReverse /subdomain/ http://subdomain.example.com/

Not without redirects. The only way you can do it without a redirect is to use a reverse proxy (either apache, or nginx would work great).

The argument over sub-domains versus sub-directory is simple to sum up. Sub-domains divide domain potential/effort into 2 (two) while sub-directories do not. Sub-domains are separate sites in a very real sense though now that Google has gotten smarter on this lately, some credit is given to the parent domain for the activities of the sub-domain. But is it ...

As much as I searched for information, there is no confirmation that subdomains and top level domains help each other automatically nowadays. There is some information saying it was true around 2007 and that it got killed around 2011, which makes sense, since this is an open door to ranking manipulation. If anyone has better information, please share...

I think the best strategy for you would be to have www.brand.com/location/ and for other languages language.brand.com/location/ However, remember to tell search engines that you have same pages in different languages like this - <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.brand.com/" /> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" ...
