What is a Reverse Proxy and How Can it Help My SEO?

Posted by Slingshot SEO

Subdomains! The bane of many SEO-conscious organizations, there is an easy solution right under your nose.

By using subfolders in place of subdomains, you can unite your content under one domain. But What if two sites exist on two different servers? A reverse proxy can make the technical implementation quite simple. With that one change, the URL http://blog.slingshotseo.com/ becomes http://www.slingshotseo.com/blog/. By acting as a content broker, your master server acts as a proxy to the content of your other servers. Multiple CMSs, databases and even platforms can be used, while all appearing to come from the same domain.

Check out this infographic to see how reverse proxy technology can relieve your subdomain woes.
