I always wondered how gmail.com would be redirected to mail.google.com/mail . And it was exiting to hunt for more google subdomains – images.google.com , maps.google.com , translate.google.com … This list will go on . And I am not gonna write all the 1402 subdomains google possess ! Now how do you find how many subdomains a domain has ?
Guessing could take aeons and in my opinion there is no such
tool free tool as compete site which actually digs out everything form a domain and lists down everything about that . You could have seen the Alexa traffic page but it only displays how many estimated percent of traffic goes to that subdomain . Which if there’s no traffic, that subdomain wont be no visible !
This question has been asked in every forum and yahoo answers but I don’t think there are such kind of tools . I just happened to check my blog’s compete stats . Compete is good Alexa alternative which offers more accurate and most minor statistical traffic , clicks , referrers everything report which can help a lot in SEO .
So what you do is just insert any website you want to check the subdomains for . And hit compare .
You will see 3 tabs – site statistic , audience profiles and subdomains
There ! You job is done . Simply go to SubDomains tab and glare at the various subdomains .
Here is a pic of top 10 google’s subdomains as shown above based on Unique Visitors . You can sort it according to Monthly Change or Yearly Change .
Here are some 4 popular sites and just look at the number of subdomains :
Twitter.com – 49
Facebook.com – 3182
Microsoft.com – 357
Wikipedia.com – Just 5
Compete.com is a premium site where you have to pay monthly for getting detailed website analyticss however there’s also a free registration option at the bottom in small font where you can see limited information .
This method is the best of even more simpler just replace the GOOGLE link
with the website you want to find information on …
