I have a media site and I am planning to have another related site that would focus particularly on entertainment, like featuring wedding anniversary, birthdays etc.....
And I would like to know if I should create a subdomain or a subdirectory for the new site?
I would appreciate your advice
As a WordPress novice, I could never figure out how to set up the subdomain thing under one WP installation - it's probably very simple but was non-obvious. So, besides the SEO question, you'll need to figure out what the content is going to be and how the two sites are (inter)related, and how/who will manage them. We ended up just creating a dedicated WP page to house related-but-separate content on our site, including its own template, and a specific menu being displayed only on that page. The resulting URL looks like a subdirectory based on how we've got our permalinks set up (www.domain.com/topic/) and it's allowing us to manage it just like the rest of the site. If you want the sub-site to have its own look-and-feel from the main site, it may be more challenging to pull off. If it's a child to the parent site, it's probably easier.
