Does Google consider a subdomain the same as a top level domain?

Most people assume you can simply place a blog on the subdomain of a site and somehow it will help the search engine ranking of the site.  But, from all that I have read it seems that Google considers subdomains to be completely unique sites.  And, you can see this to be true with blogger subdomains which are part of the larger Blogger.com (or blogspot.com) domain.   These subdomains might rank well if popular, but many don't, though the main site is very well liked and ranks highly on it's own.  One technique is to place your blog or forum on a subfolder, rather than on a different subdomain which will actually benefit your search engine ranking since it brings new content to the site.

I agree with you, sub-domain can be ranked separately, however I do think it would be harder to rank sub-domain than the main one.

If there are many subdomains like blogger or tumblr then they are seen as separate
