hould decide whether to create your sites as top-level Web sites in separate site collections, or as subsites within the same site collection. This decision is based on how much the sites have in common with each other, whether you want the ability manage them individually, and whether you want them to share elements, such as navigation or search. Within a site collection, all sites can use the same following elements: * Navigation bars (top link bar and breadcrumb bar) * Content types * Workflows * Security groups * Lookup fields across lists * Search scope * Feature set
