    hello
    I found a good flashgames niche keyword with little competition
    but i can't put the keyword in the domain name because is aleardy exists
    I thought I'd put in the root domain a blog about the same keyword niche
    and create a subdomain with the keyword in the subdomain name and the flashgames script
    example:
    keyword.blog.com



    I want to know, keyword in domain is batter than the keyowrd in the subdomain for SEO? or or are equal?

    sorry for my bad english :p

    Keyword in domain is the best option ever, keyword in subdomain is good if you create an entire network under the same domain.

    Getting your keyword in your domain will be 10 times more beneficial than having it in a subdomain.

    How did you come up with that number?

    In my experience having a keyword in your domain is becoming less and less important these days, google is trying to be more focused on the page content. (Whether he's succeeding is another question...)

    I try get blogger subdomains for new trends and ive had it a few times where I've not even put anything on the page and the sites position one, so I think subdomains are good, but adding a 00 or something random at the end of the domain shouldn't do any harm, I think exact match domains look a bit spammy and they are useless for branding, so just add another word on to it or something random like a few numbers but sub domains do work.
