    So I'm wondering if this makes a big difference, please let me know.

    Currently my address for my blog (within the site) looks like this: http://MYSITE.com/index.php/blog/all.html



    How much better would the SEO aspect be if I made it: mysite.com/blog ?

    i think it will be much better as most seo guys advice is to create a subfolder instead of subdomain.
    subfolder can benefit seo from the main site and vice-verse.

    I think much more better you make it something like seowiki.mysite.com or seoblog.mysite.com. My reason:

    1. Sub domain is more powerful than folder
    2. blog wording have high competition, if you narrow down to seoblog, or seowiki could bring better result. This concept similar to avoid naming navigation as home, as it is too common

    subdomains are concidered by search engines as another domain. therefore it would be like a new site as compare to a subfolder.and can't get seo benefit from the main site.

    Make linking from more than 1 domain isn't good? sub domain is effective to make segment such as, point the domain to others DNS, campaign analysis, database management.

    Ownedbox, you are rite, I got your point.

    Hi DaveCain, the conclusion of this post. It all depend your needs, if you need instant SEO we advise you part the blog in a folder. For advance setting such as dns, database and campaign, we advise you go for subdomain. Building sub domain have lot of benefit, but it also require more effort, as you will build the subdomain from 0
