    Hi all,

    I would like to integrate an eccomerce site (webshop) on an existing blog. Until now this have been two seperate websites, 1 for the blog and 1 for the webshop.

    On the web I can find quite some information about advises for the other way around (integrate blog on existing eccomerce site), but I am integrating a webshop into an existing blog.
    Because the blog already has already quite a lot of content and visitors I would like to make sure it will not suffer (out of SEO perspective) from integrating the webshop into it. It would be nice if the webshop (after integration on the blog) would gain extra SEO value from the blog, but for me the most important is the blog may not suffer in SEO value from the integration.

    I think I have the following options:
    - Make a subdirectory for the webshop on the blog: www.blog.com webshop

    - Make a subdomain for the webshop: shop.blog.com
    SEMrush
    - Or leave it like it is now: www.blog.com and seperate webshop (this option has my least interest)

    For SEO perspective what would be the best option do you think?

    In my opinion go with the first option. Integrate your shop into a sub-directory. Sub-domains are considered as separate domains so if you do that than you will have to build a separate backlink profile for it all over from scratch.

    And if both are similar than why keep them separated you will be earning money more if it serves its audience as one. With the blog's trust people will buy more.

    I agree with mrb. I think option 1 is your best bet.

    Option 1 is the right choice but also a subdomain will work for you.

    Option 1 is a good choice to begin with. It will not have any bad effect on the SEO of your blog. Rather, you'll benefit from the blog traffic and may get your traffic converted into sales easily.

    From SEO propective
    "Make a subdomain for the webshop: shop.blog.com" is good.

    It depends on various things, so better to take a professional consultancy suggestion or hire a seo Professional.
