I have some different views with one Optimizer, he is saying that
1- Ranking is depend on Page Rank 80%.
2- He is saying that SubDomain is not supported by Google.
But My Experience is different i have optimize website Without keeping mind Page Rank and many of keywords are in Top using the subdomain.
I am looking to your valuable thoughts and experiance.
I hope you will give me sharp view...

Pagerank isn't what it used to be. Don't obsess over it because PR alone will not get you rankings, even for three-word or even four-word terms.
Subdomains appear to be working, as long as they have links and have content.

No, it's not. It's still a factor, but it's somewhere in the 35-40% range.
Mind you, getting quality inbound links is never a bad idea anyway. When people look for inbound links, often they forget that the inbound link can also provide a lot of quality direct traffic as well as indirect. So go after quality inbound links; it can only help!
Subdomains will work on Google.
Start looking from the fifth result onward. There are a few there.
Now in terms of keyword optimization from a domain name, a subdomain will have slightly less impact on your results than a domain name; however, this generally isn't something to sweat over.
PageRank is still a factor in Google rankings but it is one of the smaller factors out of the 100 said to make up the algorithm.
Look at the PageRank of any set of SERPs and you will see that they are not at all in order of PR, which would tend to be the case if PR were a major factor. IMO PR probably accounts for no more than 5% of the page ranking relevancy score. I compete on competitive terms with a PR of 4 often beating out PR9 pages in the SERPs.
Subdomains are just another domain as far as Google is concerned, and is treated no differently.

I would say IBL's with good anchor text around 50% - 60%+, good keyword rich page content including title, h1,2,3 tags, and body content, 25 - 35%, another 3 - 4% for page rank and anything left over is just some other minor google factors.
PR is definately not a major factor. Just read my signature.
