Can i set up a blog on a subdomain and 301 redirect that subdomain to /blog folder and still get good SEO?

My developers say that it's security risks hosting WP on the domain, and I read an article where someone did a subdomain blog, didn't rank, then did a 301 redirect to the domain.com/blog and it jumped on google for some long tail keywords.

Maybe @Lindsay McGuire can help on this one 😉

I would always recommend hosting from your main domain. You want to keep the authority from it, plus it makes all your efforts more effective. Subdomains can really muddy the water. I think the 301 redirect would only work if you actually transferred your blog from the subdomain to the domain.

Perfect! Thanks guys 😎 I'll start using the chrome plugin while I wait to get the social rank demo!
