For example: If I have like 100 subdomains with keywordphrases in them, do I have to build page popularity for all these (cloaked) pages within these subdomains, or is linking forth and back to the (popular) main-domain enough?
If someone has some experience on this subject, I appreciate some input on this subject.

"You have entered the following URL:
We could not connect to the host at this time.
This page is no longer valid.
The page, if already indexed, will be removed from the index. "
But this one which also has 5 keywords actually is accepted:
This reduces the ability to stuff keywords in the subdomain. So obviously length would be the problem.
Brett-> How do you manage to get all these links pointing to each of your 800 subdomains? Are that links from outside? This really sounds like a lot of work to me.

I really think link pop is so primative by the se's that it is almost at the url level.
Link Pop generally works on all links - internal as well as external. Link Pop gives variable credence and value to a link according to the 'quality' of that link. A link from a higher ranked page for example counts more than one from a low-ranked page or a page ranked for totally unrelated terms.
So if a link grants populaity only to the specific page that receives it then the sites own internal links will pass on the benefit to a lesser degree. I.e. the page linked to now ranks more highly itself and so becomes a higher quality page when determining the value of its own links to other pages.
If it granted a benefit at the domain level the SEs would soon be stuffed with lousey results where a site with 10,000 pages of total junk ranked highly simply because just one page out of the 10,000 was extremely popular to link to.
This would result in Tripod.com, Geocities.com and Angelfire.com being the top ranked sites for hundreds if not thousands of keywords totally unrelated to hosting free space.
Aiming link pop benefits at the specific URL is simply an easier and safer method to control and to avoid irrelevant results.
