How to setup a themed site with subdomains?

by 4 comments
I've been setting up niche sites on separate subdomains, and soon I'd like to try setting up larger "themed" sites with related subdomains. I'm just unsure as to how these sites would be setup.

Do I still choose a top-level domain in a niche and then make the subdomains all the long-tail keywords for that niche? Or do I just choose a more specific main domain, but make the subdomains all related and not necessarily incorporating the root keyword of the main domain?

Does that make any sense. How do you go about doing the keyword research for one of these sites? Can you give examples to make things more clear? Thanks.

      Could you give me an example of how you would structure your site using the keyword, "debt consolidation"? Thanks.

    As I see it, you'd have 'Debt Consolidation' as top level, then subs from that and if necessary subs from your subs and you set your linking up accordingly, a la Google Snatch...

      Ok, but what words would you use for the subs? Would these be the long-tail versions incorporating my main keyword "debt consolidation"(e.g. debt consolidation loans, debt consolidation counselling, etc.)?

    Hi I've decided that maybe I should give up on selling my infographic templates product or ebook before I've even had a chance to start. I can't seem to find an affiliate marketer who can help make the launch a success. I'm willing to give 70% commission. I'm down on my last dime. I really don't know what to do. Does anyone know or are an affiliate marketer that could help or guide me? Any advice is appreciated.

    In case you have been wondering, yes, this is a true story. And yes, this has been one of the most pointless discussions I had to make in my life. Could I have avoided it in the first place? I leave you to be the judge. As a content writer, you are a lone wolf or a lone ranger, whichever you prefer. I do my job. One on one with the client. That's it. Yet, every now and then, I have to become a part of some team, more or less voluntarily. In most of the cases, I have to work with designers, animators, and similar. Not such a big deal, you may say. We all play in the same team. We want to get over with our jobs, get paid, and move on. It makes sense.

    I want to be a vendor on clickbank, I am a software developer and I want to release a product for clickbank. But I have no any project ideas, what would you suggest for me? I mainly know C# and develop bots or internet marketing tools kind of projects. But I need to develop useful bots since CB has some strict rules, e.g they don't accept crawling/scraping tools etc.
