Our company has a website, and now we would like to also have a blog in order to improve SEO. We use EC2 to host our website, and I would prefer having the blog run on its own EC2 server.
I have read that running the blog on subdomains like
blog.example.com as opposed to
www.example.com/blog will hurt SEO, so we have decided to go for the latter option. One of my developers describes that we could possibly still utilize a dedicated server for the blog if by using some kind of ".htaccess" trick. Since I do not know exactly what that trick is, this might not be a good question, but I was wondering whether having two different IP-addresses host one website will hurt SEO? Will they get their own Page Authority?
