Should i buy an EXACT domain name to a profitable keyword (for adsense) OR

Should I buy a domain name that relates to distributing information, Like a news Site.

Example:

    It depends what your future plans are. If you want to build up just one website about several related topics or products then infosite.com/profitablekeyword or profitablekeyword.infosite.com would work.

    If you want one or more niche sites then go for a keyword rich domain.

    I agree with Patricia. Depends on whether or not you'll be promoting just the profitable keyword product, or want to use the site to promote more than one profitable keywords.

    If i use the infosite as my domain, and all the other profitable keywords will be the pages in the domain, how should i rank them?

    backlinking to infosite.com/profitablekeywords ?

    Would it be able to rank the profitable keyword page higher in the search engine?

      I would create subdomains ... like
      profitablekeyword1.infosite.com
      profitablekeyword2.infosite.com
      profitablekeyword3.infosite.com

      Google would treat each subdomain as a separate domain.

        and I agree with Suzanne there and you can get sub domains or inner pages to rank higher than the home page if you work at the backlinking.

        Are you 100% sure about this? Could you link me to some documentation? I would be interested in reading more. If you can get around the problem of keywords in domain name by just subdomaining it, I think a lot more people would be doing that.

          There are a lot of conflicting articles on it, but here's a recent one.
          When to use Subdomains or Subdirectories : Search Blog Asia – SEO Insights for China, Japan, Korea, Thailand…

          Google uses subdomains such as news.google.com, etc. as well as all blogger blogs, squidoo lenses and hubpages being a subdomain and there's no difficulty ranking them if you do the SEO.

          Recommended times to use subdomains

          Completely different information or product - You may choose to use a subdomain when you have a website that has multiple different themes, ideas or distinct product lines. This is a good way to separate content and organize information in a logically and clear manner for users to interpret. An example of a use of a subdomain for this purpose is news.google.com. Their news search is a completely different product that they offer so they have decided to host it on it’s very own subdomain.
          Multiple listings in SERPs - With subdomains it is possible to have your site rank multiple times for a single query. Google will display a maximum of two URLs from the same domain for any given query. With subdomains you are able to rank more than twice and potentially saturate the SERPs.Remember search engines treat subdomains as being separate so it is possible to rank more than twice for keywords, especially brand related searches. SEObook does an excellent job with this for the keyword “SEObook”. They use subdomains such as tools.seobook.com and training.seobook.com.
          Target Particular Keyword - You may want to use a subdomain if you are looking to aggressively target a particular keyword. For example if you run a pet store and you want to try to rank for the keyword “dalmatians” you may set up a subdomain – dalmatians.petstore.com. You will need build quality links to this new sub domain preferably with the keyword, dalmatians as the anchor text. With the appropriate resources you are able to become more competitive for keywords that you target with multiple subdomains.

          Recommended times to use subdirectories

          For smaller sites - Subdirectories are more appropriate for smaller sites as it keeps all content in one place and just categorises them by basically putting them into folders.
          Keep all page rank and link juice – Probably one of the strongest arguments to using subdirectories is all content shares the same page rank and link juice from the root domain. In the short term it gives the content in subdirectories a much better chance of ranking. Any link building to the content within subdirectories benefit the site as a whole. Subdirectories allow site to grow in authority much faster
          Site Organization – Subdirectories are a good way to organise content on a website. Subdirectories allow you to group similar pieces of content or information. It is similar to a folder structure on a computer and can be treated/used in a similar way.

    Be careful that you're not buying a domain with a trademarked term in that someone will end up taking back from you when they notice.
