Welcome to WebMasterWorld, Terrier. Things like widgets.yourdomain.com are actually part of what you pay for when you buy a domain. To take advantage of these, however; you generally need to talk to your specific hosting company. Many charge extra for using these.

Thanks for the info GGROT. I shall speak to my hosting company or should I say the company I bought the name from, the hosting company I use did not know about this. With my competitors site when the url is listed by the search engine it does not have a [www....] in front just goes straight to keyword.domain.com.
Using www.domain.com/widgets.htm does not seem to gain enough advantage I presume putting the keyword in front will help. or is it better to get a new domain as per the 2nd Idea.

Becareful using third level domain names when promoting with Inktomi. If Ink thinks you're using DNS wildcards to create third level domain names, then you could be labelled as a spammer and banned.

>> If Ink thinks you're using DNS wildcards to create third level domain names
Do you have any clue to how they would make that guess? Is it the sheer number of 3rd level domain names?

Would I be correct in thinking that www.widgets-wid-gets.com is a third level domain and wigets.domain.com is a sub domain
The wild card I presume is the wid-gets. Which is a shame my targeted keyword gets searched for in both formats.

What are DNS wildcards?
