Can A SubDomain Ban the Main Domain? Yes. It is only
logical to say that it is possible for a subdomain
that is deploying SEO tactics that warrant a
penalization by the search engine to have the
potential to spread that penalty across the whole
domain. This is the current discussion taking place at
