Hi may I ask a general question that might benefit others?
My client wants to add a directory to his site, and I'm planning to do it as a subdomain, but is that the best route?
Or should I make it a multisite and make one subdomain the directory?
AND he has 3 external sites for his key products that are wordpress, and I thought to create a multisite and copy them into it and then point the external urls. so instead of http://www.hismainproduct.com
it would be hismainproduct.companybrandname.com.
He's a small pharmaceutical company, so each med has a brand emphasis, like say pfizer makes prilosec. I think they might have prilosec.pfizer.com . From an SEO standpoint it connects the product to the brand.
Right now they are separate sites. Made sense to me unless anyone has better ideas.
I noticed ebay used to have motors.ebay.com and now its http://www.ebay.com/motors.
craigslist does it as subdomains.
