    Domain Name - Subdomain Name: Exact Match Ranking

    Hello everyone!

    I have a simple question. I am looking to start a handful of new food-related content sites for some long-term organic income, but I have a question regarding the domain names. Now, I can buy a simple exact match domain name [keywordhere.com] for each site... or could I do this:

    keyword1.com and create a simple content site there.

    Then, I could do:
    keywordtwo.keyword1.com
    keywordthree.keyword1.com, etc.

    Would there be a difference in ranking if I just made a whole domain name for each keyword, or if I used the keywords in subdomains?

    Example for Clarification:
    cookingtips.com
    breadkeyword.cookingtips.com
    cakekeyword.cookingtips.com

    Would cakekeyword.cookingtips.com rank as highly for cakekeyword as if I just did cakekeyword.com?

    Edit: Alternate Idea
    Maybe it would be best if I just did keyword1.com/cakekeyword.html or something?

    Please help!

    it is better to use directory instead subdomain because subdomain needs more backlinks to be indexed, and if you use directory you can make it indexed in just 5 minutes by linking it from the main domain

    A new domain name for each keyword would offer more of a bonus. A new page for each keyword would offer a bonus, and be more cost-effective.
