    Just had a thought, I want to start building greyhat webpages, for CPA offers, aff marketing etc. To save some start up capital, I thought of the idea, buying a niche domain for example, gadgets (I know, it's over-sautated as it is), then posting blog posts about products, then ranking highly for that post, so trying to rank for keywords with a URL like
    Code:
    http://www.domain.com/10/09/keyword_here
    Instead of using 1 domain per product.

    Does this effect anything SEO wise?
    Is it easier to rank for the domain, instead of pages?
    etc.

    I think you have a better chance with ranking with just the domain, organically.

    With dot extensions you will need a load of backlinks, or little competition,
    and high searches!

    Cheers.

    It is definitely easier to rank with keyword domains than subpages.

    However if you can build an authority blog on the main niche with lots of backlinks and regular updates (serveral times in a week) , the individual pages will get the benefit of the overall authority of the domain. The beauty of such a site is that any post you make will get indexed within minutes and with a couple of backlinks they will also start bringing traffic.

    If you are going for pages, go for the following format.
    www.example.com/keyword-here/

    Your method will work just fine.

    Actually, it will also be easier. Only 1 blog to maintain.

    It is also easier to use the long tail keywords in blog posts than domain names.

    Use 'keyword-here' instead of 'keyword_here'.

    When you are just starting, it would be good to maintain only one blog. That can be very convenient for you. What you are thinking about will actually just work. And yes, using of long tail keywords in your posts would be such a great idea. Majority of the Google users do their searches using long tail keywords.

    I'm only intending on trying to rank for long-tail keywords, not going to bother trying to rank for short-tail keywords, simply because it's too much hassle to do it automated and avoid being sandboxed.

    Thanks a lot everyone, my plan is to build up a blog on [niche] then push offers for that niche, but instead of just having sales pages, pushing products, I'm also going to post a lot of normal content for that niche.
