    Hey *!

    I am planning to make some article site like ezineerticles, so my site will be about anything...
    What do you guys think would be better for seo?

    article-topic.example.com/article123.htm
    example.com/article-topic/article123.htm

    (of course article-topic.com would be best but i am tired of buying domains ;) or should I?)

    thanks.
