- Do subdomains help/hurt SEO? 4 answers
My domain discountbox.in was performing well on the Google search engine. A couple of days back we launched the blog and forum on the subdomain discuss.discountbox.in and within the next 2 days we were kind of penalized heavily. What could be the cause of this? Do subdomains have an impact on the primary domain?
