Wow this is all great information, I have one question though....

I have created my site with Joomla and use MyBlog which is built right into the main site and is set up on a navigational link. Should I consider setting the BLOG up as a sub-domain and if so what are the reasons for this?

Thanks!

SEO experts are sometimes divided on this issue. Here's an article about when you should have a blog as a subdomain and when you should not:

The name of the game is links in my opinion. All other things being equal, most of the time the site with more links will appear before yours.

I think I'm going to add a few links. Tough to find the PR6-8 (I have tried to add them already)ones though. Plenty of 0-5 out there.

I am under the impression that incoming links (other sites linking to you, especially if their PR is higher than yours) are more valuable than outgoing links.

But I could be wrong . . .
