Subdomains — Where do visitors go

In general, subdomains are not ranked separately from their domains. The only major exception to this is domains and TLDs that are listed in the Public Suffix List at For example, blogs on will usually have their own traffic rank, provided we have sufficient data for the blog.

We show a breakdown of visitors by subdomain in the "Where do visitors go on X" section of a site’s Site Overview page.

Not all subdomains of a site might be listed in the "Where do visitors go" section. If we have not seen measurable traffic to a subdomain from our traffic panel, it will not appear on the list. Also the list of subdomains may change over time, as more or less data is available. Even if a particular subdomain is not listed in the "Where do visitors go on X" list, traffic to that subdomain is still counted as part of your site’s traffic.

We update the "Where do visitors go" data monthly for all sites. The data is based on the trailing month.

Note: Sites with Certified metrics can elect to show directly measured "Where do visitors go" information.
