    Hi
    Here is my issue
    (i will not use my true domain and niches in that exemple but the main idea remain the same)

    I curently have a website giving tips and trics ,softwares , ect blabla targeting " extreme scrapbooking adicts" (LOL)
    I want to integrate or offer in some way a " extreme scrapbooking aditc dating site "
    the dating site will be branded the same way as the main website so it will look realated and my loyal visitor will feel safe to use the dating site

    i have many ways of doing this but i dont know wich one to chose and for many reason

    a) seo ..i want to add value to my primary website with the dating site
    b) ease of navigation i dont want people get confused whit the domain name of the website and the dating site ectect
    c)i want the dating site to be easily acessible to everybody , both people who already know my site and new people ( daily user of my website are most likely to click the dating link "ho! wow something new ill clik there "), but i want the dating site to be aviable to new people also ..ie: from search engine
    d)...any sugestion are welcome

    So after looking at the question from manny different angle ive came up whit these solution:

    1- simply do a "dating" tab in my existing website that will redirect automaticaly the user to wxw.scrapbookkingdating.cxm
    (this dont add any value to my main website)?? i will have to seo and advertise the dating site a lot more

    2- i put the dating site in a subdomain ie: dating.scrapbokingsite.cxm
    (will i have to rank the dating site individualy from the main website and does the subdomain will influence my main site rankig by adding value keywords ectect ) can i get ranked 1st with a subdomain adress????

    3-buy a domain name ie: wxw.scrapbookdating.cxm and redirect this website directly to a subfolder of my main website which will contain the dating website
    ei: wxw.scrapbooking.cxm/dating
    ( is this even possible to have a website in a website?in a subfolder? if its a subfolder then i guess this wil all ad up to my main website seo ranking/value??if somebody search for srapbookingadicdating then they will find my main wesite in search result?the wxw.scrapbookdating.cxm will have zerooo ranking cause its only a redirect i guess? the url will be easy to remember to new member tho)??

    that all the solution i did find for now , the goal is to keep both main site and dating site as close as possible and help each others to get trafic ect but still be easy to rank and be known for people who dont know my main website ,what sould i do my brain burning im a bit lost

    thanks for your precious time

    p.s. my english is not vey good so if you need any clarification feel free to ask

    Edit: i also want to add a forum so the same question apply : subdomain,subfolder or unique domain? thx
