Does anyone know how to split a Wordpress site into different subdomains by categories?

I have 2 blogs that I'd like to keep on a single domain and split them into 2 subdomains to make that work SEO-wise. In order to keep the setup simple, I want to have one copy of Wordpress installed and split the content by top level categories.

There are some plugins for that, but I couldn't make that work, so I'm not sure if I'm doing everything right. Did anyone do something like that?

Appreciate any input

I am not 100% sure what you mean, but you could look into WP Multisite. Which is a single install and can have several sites on sub-domains. All can be reached through the main dashboard.
