  • What are the pros and cons of setting up a WordPress multisite network using subdomains or sub-directorys?

    Thanks

  • Subfolder is easier if you’re on shared hosting. But that’s about it, really. It’s just a preference thing.

    Apparently out the box subdomains appear as a separate website to search engines like google. Although this may or may not matter if you have domain mapping setup.

    If you’re planning on domain mapping, then yes – it’s completely irrelevant.

    If you’re using one or the other, then yes: subdomains give separate results in google. subfolders are seen as belonging to the main domain and give more authority to that.
