    It's all a matter of scale, nobody thinks twice about a webmaster who earns a few hundred a month from one site, or someone who earns a couple of grand from 20 sites, so why should anyone be surprised that Will earns $70k with 200 sites. Hell, if I had 200 sites that I'd been building for years I bet I'd be earning that much as well.

    Exactly!

    Well, except that most of us will do better to focus on fewer than five sites -- and make them all winners. But you've definitely got the right idea there.

    Google treats 5 sites of 200 pages each better than they treat 200 sites of 5 pages each.

    I've heard that said elsewhere as well, except nobody ever gives a breakdown of earnings per site so when those of us who aren't earning that much look around and see people like you with 200 sites it seems logical that to emulate you we need a similar number.

    You're probably unlikely to give a realistic breakdown of your own earnings, but could you give some concrete examples of the difference you've seen in the SERPs between a 200 page site, or numerous niche sites of a few pages each?

    I can't think of a way to create concrete numbers for you on this topic. This forces me to generalize, which isn't quite satisfying for either of us.

    Google likes "authoritative" sites. "Authoritative" is never quite defined. However, Google doesn't normally see five page sites as being "authoritative."

    The key is to get a site to be considered "authoritative" and then start reaping the RoI from owning that property.

    With Google, I do a lot better in the SERPS if I add a page to one of my "authoritative" sites than if I create a new site for that keyword.

    And here are a couple of caveats:

    1. If you can get an exact match com/net/org domain with no hyphens -- then it's probably worth registering the domain and building at least a mini-site. Google's "brand" bonus is pretty significant.
    2. MSN doesn't work the same way. MSN seems to love some of my mini-sites.

    That's an intriguing thought, and sorry to hijack this thread, but do you mean create a mini site with the exact keywords I'm chasing? If so, would you monetise the niche site, or link to the main site from it, or both?

    Yes, if you can get an exact match domain.

    I like to do both.

    I was at a search marketing expo a few months back here in India and there was this guy from Taiwan who had come down.

    We met had a small chat, and I told him that I was making about $10,000/mo on an average.

    And, he looked down at me and said "Then, why are you wearing a shoe like this? I don't believe you".

    The regular thing which comes to people's mind's when they see others who make money is "why isn't he driving a ferrari" or "why doesn't he date that super-model".

    I've seen Will in person and I know that his truck isn't even close to Ferrari

    But, that doesn't mean he's not a millionaire.

    Fuck the morons who are just plain envious and like to refute things.

    How many millionaires are there living in regular streets in regular suburbs, and they still have a job at the plant, they still hang out with their buddies at the bar?

    Wealth brings security, and a lot of people prefer to keep it that way. Showing off with flashy outfits and gadgets takes away the security because suddenly you become a target for people wanting handouts or worse, criminals who think your home makes a great place to get stuff for free.
