    When you guys register on different web 2.0 properties, do you use your main keyword in the url too?

    For example, If my main keyword is: "weight loss" would you use the same keyword in the web 2.0 sub domains ? i.e.:
    weightloss.weebly.com
    weightloss.livejournal.com
    etc ...

    Or do you guys suggest using some random names? Or closely related keywords to the main keyword?

    Most web 2.0 don't rank well anymore. Some still do depending on niche, just check KW's on 1st 2 or 3 pages on G even if it's 30 search/mo & someone ranks there, then you have a chance to take their spot or be listed as sublisting.

    Before all these seo guys here jump down my throat let me give example. Lets say main site is weight-loss-for-fat-guys .net So thats your main KW. Lets say Weebly & LJ show in 1st 10 pages for that KW but Weight Loss For Fat Guys In 30 Days gets only 30 searches/mo but ranking on pages 1 & 2, I would use that and you have better chance of getting that subdomain as well.

    Try to rank them there but it would mainly serve the purpose G ranks them higher in the niche so gives them more weight in that niche whether you rank it or not so their links will mean more than like a wetpaint or whatever that is nowhere to be found on 1st 20 pages.

    Long story short; If doing it by hand, choose 2.0's you see ranking in niche on 1st few pages even if lower search volume for more link juice.

    My understanding is that web 2.0 sites will be favoured for their content standard which enhances the keyword searchability.

    What I'm planning is to use my main keyword inside the web 2.0 properties URL for the Tier 1 and then the Tier 2 will include random keywords inside the subdomain URL for the web 2.0 properties (somewhat related to the main keyword too).

    Of course use them when you get a subdomain type area from them when available. That will really help.

    Home Page:
    Every little bit that you can pass back to your main site helps. Getting links from related sites is better than non-related sites, and putting KWs in the url tell google it's a related site.

    KWs plus something random is fine too, like DogTraining32.weebly.com if DogTraining.weebly.com is taken

    Yes that's what I am doing. What do you suggest for Tier 2? Random URLs or some related keywords to the main keyword i.e. If the main keyword is "dog training" then for Tier 2 web 2.0 properties, sub domains would use keywords such as "dog training tips".

    I think it would help a little bit in ranking your web 2.0

    I don't want to rank my web 2.0 sites. I just want to pass the link juice to my money site.

    Yes - by doing this will you help the search engines to understand what the site is about. And you will benefit from this, when you are linking to your money site.
