I do understand that some marketers out there do use subdomains to promote products.
What is a purpose of subdomains?
What are the pros and cons using them?
I hope someone can help me with this. Gladly appreciated.
maybe its because they don't have money to buy dot Info (1.99 $) lol
just like Big G and Yahoo that never buy new domain(cheapskate) lol
i think using sub domains is cheaper than buying a new domain name, and a lot people notice that there's a lot of websites online which uses sub domain when promoting affiliate products

Subdomains aren't that professional. Also take longer to get on google. I just published a hub on getting a free domain. Check it out and tell me what you thinkhttp://hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Get-a-Free-Domain-and-Help-on-DNS-settings
Subdomains can help rank pages on google if it is not spam.
The beauty of subdomains from the point of an Internet Marketer is that search engines treat them as separate sites. This has its pros and cons, but long-term you can gain pagerank from your subdomains also. If you get a great generic keyword domain, you may even find that people will be willing to pay for exclusive rights to subdomains.
I use subdomains with my craft sites. One subdomain has one of it's pages listed as number 1 and the main site comes up well in the search engine.
I have subdomains simply to save money, because the site provider offers as many as I'd like for the same price.
Using these may be a big mistake on my part. I hope to learn something from other posts to this question, but I don't think having them has hurt me.
For Google every subdomain (when created) counts as a new domain. It depends what you want to do with it. What I do sometimes is to create a subdomain with exact keyword match and after time a do a background site from it linking to my money site or I do 301.
From everything I have read on this subject thus far what I could make of it pertaining to your question would be this.
People using questionable marketing methods might want to use sub domains so they wouldn't be out any money if that sub domain became banned by Google. That being said they could also be used to practice marketing techniques for free.

I'm in a plunge again - going down to levels I've not seen since March 2010. As we now have sub-domains and all our writing has an impact on every one of our hubs I've been analyzing my older hubs.One thing I note is that early on I wrote quite a few hubs about subjects that already had a lot of...

The whole purpose of sub-domains, from what I understand, is to give good hubbers the chance to rise up to the search engines while hubbers who don't produce quality content to umm not.Before the whole subdomain thing, we were urged to flag spam (and otherwise "bad") content so it...

Hi Matt. When HP moved all subdomains back to the main domain, I expected EC banners would be restored to hubs that previously held them (before choosing to opt out of EC and keep all hubs within subdomains.) So far, no sign of them. Is this a technical issue? Banners used to be restored, but...
