I'm not going to read the info but my was 'your domain/blog'.  But before you post you can also conical it more if you want.

Read some of Tammy Emineth 's stuff.

I put my blog on my main site, and easily found in the menu.  The blog is a great way for people to get to know you.  I want them to be able to have that option.  As well, it is likely more valuable for search engines if your blog is attached to your main real estate domain.

Go with the main site.

Forget about silos like it is mentioned in one of the videos.

Link internally where it makes sense for the user. For example, if you have a post about city x, link from the post to some property pages for city x.

Try doing that for most posts you write. But, do it in a common sense manner, not a spammy manner.

There are many different schools of thought on this. Be careful who you listen to and the recommendations you get. I've set mine up domain/blog.

I wish you all the best with building your WordPress site.

Hi there,

 

I have been training people in regards to how to do this in the past (quite a while back). The blog can be on either the main domain or subdomain.

 

 

The URL can be the same for both:

 

1. www.yoursite.com/blog use the same log ins as your main site

2.  www.yoursite.com/blog. For each site, you will have separate log ins. 

 

I hope that helps.

 

Thanks!

Main site - blog subdomain. You can point your main url to your site and then even point another domain to your blog, utilizing keywords for two instead of just the one in urls.
