    - For the sections you can provide enough content, use subdomains
    - For the smaller sections use subdirs

    (This also depends heavily on your keyword research, try to interpreted the results of that in order to make a decision)

    It's rarely all white or black, most of the time a good mix is the best you can do ;-)

    Thanks for the quick answers!

    So if i got this right: Its not necessary to buy a domain that is related to my niche? I will be fine using a general domain + subdomains and/or subdirs?

    Ok I got it. A last questions: if i plan to do reviews of total different things. In example: Hosting reviews, movie download reviews and auto reviews, could i simply use a reviews.com and than do reviews.com/auto/bmw, reviews.com/hosting/hostgator, reviews.com/streaming/graboid etc.?

    Thanks for your help man i realy appreciate it.

    I always try to get a new domain TLD with my main keyword in it, that seems to work for me. I seem to get better rankings with a keyword in my domain name. You can Buy a .com for 8.5 $ . So its a negligible cost.
