Why make a site with it's own domain name, when you can use a sub-domain on a site that is already powerful? Also, why not use these powerful sites as backlinks for your domain? Well, at least one of these is a well known SEO strategy.

Anyway, who has tried this stuff? What was your result? Myself, I'm not much for using subdomains, I'd rather have my own domain, though it might be slower to develop.

You can but having your own name means people can easily remember your websites and you will have good advantage in SEO when you build your plan for backlinks and other SEO things. Google often prefer own TDL for ranking and I hardly see any subdomain page in top 10 results unless search volume is really low.

Creating multiple sites (whether on custom domain or subdomains) with an aim to build backlinks is not appreciated by search engines. This is called PBN or private blog networks, a network of blogs primarily developed to create artificial backlinks for search engine ranking purposes.

As you all should know that search engines keep different metrics for domains than , it is recommended that webmasters place link-worthy content like blogs in subfolders rather than subdomains.

It seems like an easier tactic to use subdomains, but search engines rank such sites lower than those on their own.

It's also to the owners advantage, since subdomains have too many restrictions especially when it comes to ads.

You can build a lot of free blogs and use these blogs for backlinks. However, you will be using subdomains on these free blogs (unless you decide to use a custom domain). Backlinks from subdomain are not as powerful as the backlink from main domain. furthermore building sites just for backlinks will be termed pbn backlinks and do not help much.

I know a lot of people create small websites so that they can drive traffic as well as create backlinks for their site. However, how effective this method is I do not know.

They are completely a waste of time because these websites do not help your primary website neither in terms of driving traffic, not building backlinks. Backlinks should always come from reputed sites

If you have multiple different blogs on other sites and you put some back links to your domain site then that should have some good effect on your SEO and the reason is that you're bringing people to those sites with similar but different information. You shouldn't copy word for word anything from your true domain site so everything should be original and unique but still relate in information in order for it to work.

Instead of building small sites to create backlinks, you can try creating accounts on numerous social sites and start sharing on social sites. This will help in search engine ranking

I believe using another domain or sub domain on yours is quite welcome if your you develop has not been well known by people to patronize.

Creating my own domains is very much accepted by me. I love to choose from a domain that suits my website niche selection. Develop the website the best possible i can offer, then promote it through social medias and sponsored posts.

The reason why I won't consider building my own domain on an already established site it's because people will not easily be able to remember my domain name because it is built as a subdomain on someone else domain.

wordpress.com is considered web 2.0 site. There are a lot of web 2.0 sites, for examples, free blogs like tumblr, even wix, weebly etc, social networks, social bookmarking etc. , Web 2.0 site are good platform to help in seo

You can create many sites with wordpress or blogspot and share your links but this is considered private blog network and private blog network is not a good seo strategy

ONly way you can benefit by building sites for seo purpose is by building authority sites, high traffic sites and then using these sites to build backlinks for your primary site

This is often called web 2.0 backlinks and it is old fashion. It is no longer effective and can cause or attract penalty for your website if you have too much of them pointing to the homepage of your website.
