    Question Building Multiple Sites at Once as a Newbie/Not-so-Newbie

    Hello everyone,

    I've been working as a freelance writer for some years now, and I've help write SEO-optimized content content and naturally spilled into SEO link building for other people. I'm a newbie to internet marketing because I don't have my own sites, but I still feel a bit more advanced because I know a bit more than most newbies about linkbuilding, SEO, and so on because I've worked behind the scenes for other people.

    My question is, would I be penalized for building multiple new sites at once? I have a list of various niches I want to target to reach my IM goals, and I plan to focus on 7 to 10 new sites at a time every two to three months.

    My common sense tells me as long as ensure my sites are top notch in quality and don't participate in anything shady, I have nothing to worry about. However, my paranoia tells me to go slow. I don't want to risk getting smacked by the big G because of some advanced algorithm.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance...

    Who would penalize you?
    Search engines could care less whether you start one new site in 100 years, or 100 new sites in one year, or 1,000 sites in one hour.

    Lol, thanks for the reply, Iowadawg. I guess you're right, I'm just paranoid and looking for a reason to stall.

    Any other responses?

    It doesn't matter per se how many sites you create a month. But some other issues come to mind like link diversity and thin content (Panda). So, the limiting factors in this regard are the amount of content you can generate and your sources for backlinking.


    However, 7 to 10 new sites on the 1st go may be too much. I think a better number is 5 with 20 articles per site over the course of a couple of months. Otherwise, you may be streching yourself too thin. You'll find that 80% of your revenue comes from 20% of your sites. Consider, one good MFA site can generate $500-$1000 a month. So, more isn't necessarily better. I would advise spending most of my time on the research. The time consuming work is the niche research,domain searches, SWOT analysis, and keyword research.

    bogart is right, it doesn't matter how many sites you build. I would, though, make sure that you're providing enough good quality, unique content on each site.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    Yay, I'm so glad this thread got more replies!!!

    Thank you bogart and bhartzer!!! I have a bit of help, so this I why I thought I could push for 7 to 10 sites the first go around, but I do think I'll scale it back as you two suggested, in spite of the additional help.

    Thanks again!

    Absolutely, there is nothing to be worried about how much site u r going to launch; rather search engines are worried about the duplicate contents. As long you will keep unique contents Google Panda will not take any action against your site whatever the number is may be 100 to 1000 sites.

    I would build the sites one at a time, and not worry about the frequency of when they go live, or how polished they look. The main thing is to get the sites up and avoid procrastination and/or analysis paralysis.

    There are so many new sites being built all the time that Google will hardly care what frequency or how many sites you are personally adding.

    co.cc was not banned by google for duplicate content and spam.

    Rather, too many people used that domain for malware, trojans, etc.
