Subdomains and specific forums


Well-known member
Would I be able to set up a subdomain and direct it to a specific forum without affecting anything (cookies), and within license restrictions?

For example our main site is...

The subdomain would be...

Would this help search engine rankings when in the Blackburn Rovers forum? At present that forum is third place on the second page of search results when typing in "Blackburn Rovers forum". I would ideally like to get it onto the first page, as the main site is when typing in "Blackburn Forum".

Or should I use our other domain and redirect it to the specified forum on - is this allowed?
