    after dipping my toes into mfa niche sites, and doing minimal SEO, i achieved 9 #1 ranks, pulling 120 UV's a day... (VERY happy)

    i am now planning to rinse repeat roll out... and i have all my keywords planned ( love doing keyword research!!! :D:D).. sourced my outsourcing... just need to buy the domains... once i get my student loan through :haha:

    but i am wondering can i rank subdomains just as easy? i have a few 4 letter domains... i know it is possible, because i made a website a while back just for the fun.. which i left for a few months, looked at my bandwidth stats, and saw that i was getting 300 uniques a day!

    so maybe i should skip buying 3120510 domains and save the muneyzz and buy a beer instead? or is it highly advised to buy domains? the keywords are super low comp, but also relatively low traffic.

    advice! :D:D

    Your sig: I don't understand bus lanes. Why do poor people have to get to places quicker than I do?

    But you don't have money for domains?

    If I remember correctly haven't Google stated they will be treating links from subdomains as internal?

    I'm sure you could rank a sub domain but I prefer to build out a brand new site that I can use as a content cluster or link driver later. Also the new domain will have some value and can be flipped later.

    Well If Your Depending On SEO Organic And Getting Traffic Via Search Engines. I Would Recommend That You Get A TLD Domain Name.

    But If You Drive Traffic From Different Sources Like Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo Answers And Articles. It Doesn't Really Matter If You Have TLD Or Subdomain.
