There are a lot of terms to know in the digital marketing field.  Here are two of them, subdirectory and subdomain.  What is the difference between “subdirectory” vs. “subdomain” ?  When it comes to search engines, the difference is a big one.

 

A subdirectory is a folder within the main website files.  It would look something like this in a website address:

 

www.yourbusinessname.com/subdirectoryfolder

 

A subdomain is an addition to a website but search engines see it as a completely new website even though the main company name URL is still in it.  Here is an example of a subdomain:

 

www.subdomain.yourbusinessname.com
