During episode 83 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if using industries as subdomains in the same root domain would over-optimized a particular website.
The exact question was:
My question is, lets say I have a domain plumbersnearme.com – I have one like thus but not for plumbers, is that over optimized? This is now a keyword, I mean “INDUSTRY” near me.
And if I subdomain out per city; london.plumbersnearme.com – manchester.plumbersnearme.com etc, can I have the business name as london plumbers near me for a google maps listing using the same root but subdomaining cities out to target other areas or should I just use completely seperate domains?
