comment Google Analytics setting cookies on static content despite being on entirely separate domain
I'm seeing a "Grade A on Use cookie-free domains" - it's only listing the TypeKit files as as being served from a domain with cookies - try deleting all your cookies from the site and trying again, see if any more are set?

comment Why do we have to pay for a domain name?
Also, unless you go into random ports and make things even more suspicious, only have one "site" responding on one IP address - domain names (or more accurately) Host Headers allow administrators host multiple sites on a single address (much like having different companies operating out of a single office block to take your analogy further).

comment Can google crawl an URL (say some static HTML file) that has no pointing link?
+1 for adding the note about authentication/authorisation. The only real way to guarantee search engines won't be able to reach these pages is to have them in a secure area in such a way that even requesting the path directly triggers the authentication.

comment Should I always use HTML5 Microdata for SEO?
@Howdy_McGee the 3rd point "Why microdata? Why not [...] microformats?" states: "Historically, we’ve supported three different standards for structured data markup: microdata, microformats, and RDFa. [...] we’ve decided to focus on just one format for schema.org. [...] There are arguments to be made for preferring any of the existing standards, but we’ve found that microdata strikes a balance between the extensibility of RDFa and the simplicity of microformats, so this is the format that we’ve gone with." So they are not supporting microformats.

@Sinan I think it's actually the opposite of that question - Pacerier wants to redirect the user from b.com to a.com, where as Sunny88 wants duplicate content on the two domains.

comment Subdomains regarding name servers/domains
Sorry, but if you're going to throw around terms like RTFM please link to a manual for people to read. On top of that, searching for your term "hosts in domain" didn't bring me back anything particularly useful compared with the more industry standard "subdomain" which brings back useful results about configuring both your web- and name-servers.
