    I'm starting some new campaigns and trying to take every aspect of SEO keyword analyzing into consideration, which is why I'm asking you all of experience which of the following will yield best results or does it even matter:

    option 1:
    www.{keywords}.com

    option 2:
    {keywords}.{nichedomain}.com

    option 3:
    {nichedomain}.com/{keywords}.html

    or whether or not none of that matters, as long as the keywords are in the full url like, asfdsfsafdd.com/chicken-and-waffles.html yielding the same results as chicken-and-waffles.com.

    Option 1 is ideal.

    however option 3 will leave more room to have multiple 1-2 and 3 listings if done right...

    By right I mean, you make sure that your internal linking structure has anchored text links pointing to the corresponding page...

    Ya I guess so. It truly depends on the goals of the site.
    If you're trying to target one or two workds go for keyword domain. If you're trageting a bunch go for niche. Though you could always do:

    {keyword1}.com/{keywords}.html

    ^ totally agree dude.

    You need a plan of how and what you're going to do and what will be the best path for you.

    I think that there is little in the way of planning when it comes to affiliate work. However it does leave room for the guys with a plan, to win.

    Thanks for you both's feedback. What I'm thinking to do is find a common keyword(2-3 if possible) that would tie in to other keywords like for example:

    YouCanBeRich.RichLikeMe.com/how-to-get-rich-quick-for-real.html
    DoYouWantToBeRich.RichLikeMe.com/do_you_really_want_to_be_rich.html

    in which RichLikeMe would be the 3 linked keywords (short tail) and the subdomains and direct pages would be promotions linking to the squeeze page or whatever.

    My biggest reasoning for wanting to do it that way is for organization. Having 100s of domains and having to re-point them if an offer expires, etc. will be annoying, but if I can just have subdomains, etc. all liking to articles that point back to the main page, then it would be great and make like 99% less work in the long run.

    Option 1 is ideal for smaller sites that are maybe MNS or specific niches.

    Option 2 I would never do this.

    Option 3 is for authority sites if you have a huge niche and many keywords this option would be ideal.

    So if I'm targeting a lot of health related products, it would be better to just create a good health top site, and have individual pages than it would just have a lot of subdomains, correct? or maybe subdomain per sub-niche

    like

    ear.healthsite.boom/how-to-cure-an-ear-infection.html
    eye.healthsite.boom/how-to-improve-your-vision.html

    would this be a better way to go? I am trying to make things as simple as possible for expansion and speed building of new sites to tie in, and crosslink between each other.
