    Keywords in domain name vs. subdomain or folder


    OK, besides on page optimization and links - let's say we have a few sites selling widgets and all have the same content and links. One is widgets.com another is widgets.org then widgets.info and then we have widgets.site.com and site.com/widgets.html
    In which order do you think they will all rank?
    My point is does it matter if the keyword is in the domain name (.com or other TLDs) or in a subdomain or folder?

    To Search Engines obviously. I know some say it doesn't matter. I think it does though and some think the same - watch http://youtube.com/watch?v=TL7oV5EY59U
    I don't want to advertise this guy, but he's a good SEO and his site is on the first page of all major SE for all seo related keyords. So he must know a few things...
