    When targetting a specific long tail keyword (think Google sniping) is it better to register a new domain with the keyword in it or simply create a new keyword SEO'd page on, say, a PR 2 site?

    It seems to me it'd be better to add-on to an existing site (say PR 2) than to create a whole new domain that is brand new and deal with sandboxing, etc.

    What do you experts say?

    Agreed, if the domain is relevant stick with the domain otherwise I'd go for exact match on the domain name if available.

    If it's for a product name or keyword that gets too much traffic even a keyword domain can get sandboxed.
