Is an own domain much better than a subdomain?
Will someone please explain to me:
1/ How much better is it to have your own domain regarding recognition and rankings in Google and Bing?
2/ Will my .siterubix .com eventually rank the same as an own domain?
3/ When a site is searched for, will the own domain rank over my subdomain?
4/ If not, Why not, Please?
Thanks in advance,
