I am looking to make site about 4 anime.
I have real trouble designing about the domain. One of them is more important than the other three.
1) Create a site like pokemonsomething and then a site like digimonsomething and so on (max 4 anime). A user can switch the from one site to an other via links.
2) Create one site animesomething and then add subdirectories e.g. animesomething/pokemon, animesomething/digimon and so on.
2) Create one site animesomething and then add subdomains e.g. pokemon.animesomething, digimon.animesomething and so on.
If I make multiple sites it seems like some kids work who got really no clue what he is doing. If I make only one site, will i have less chances appearing on top google results, as my site doesn't have the "pokemon" on the domain?
What's best for google rankings and by what margin?

I'd go with either number 2 or what's apparently a second number 2 :)


Having keywords in your domain name doesn't count for much these days. In fact, Google has kind of slapped sites that appear to depend just on their domain name for relevance.

Forget about "rankings" and do what is best for your USERS and strangely enough your URLs (ALL of them) will also do better with getting Google referral traffic.
