I'm entering some new niches and want to start from scratch (I have a moderately successful site selling training materials for teachers which I set up knowing nothing about SEO etc. and I want to get it right this time).

What I'd like to know is...

Having researched my keywords and found a term that I would like to put in my URL, should I use the keyword-rich domain for my actual site or for my blog? Or is it ok to put my blog on the same domain as my site?

Just to clarify... I've got a blog that I am using to generate traffic to my squeeze page. I am planning on keeping the squeeze/landing page on a normal website rather than wp blog - is that right or can they both be on the same domain?

Many thanks to anyone who can clear this up for me...

    Put them both on the same domain. That's what I do, too. It works great. If you need help with how to set it up, I'm at -- just email from my contact form.

    There is no problem with putting them on the same domain. That's what I'm doing, as well. I would even advise you to do so if you want to do some kind of "branding", and want people to recognize your domain name.

      same domain is without a doubt the way to go as that way you are building authority and page rank in one spot rather than trying to do it on multiple domains.

      if u focus on a free offer to build your list there and then sell the product as a backend product is a good long term strategy rather than just trying to sell the product straight up

    A lot of authority websites have blogs rooted under their domain, if you're building a brand, it's doubly important to do so.
