    I am running 12 websites in different niches at the moment, 3 of them are some sort of autoblogs (update the content by it self) so I don't have to worry about any of them, the rest are simply normal blogs, and what I do, I almost outsource everything , only one website that I run 100% by my self.

    In the long run you are better off on focusing on building the best.

    Blogs by their nature are somewhat easier to gain the links and get a web 2.0 boost. It's much easier to outsource the content than outsource SEO work.

    With getting success on my first ever decent website last 2009, this 2010 I'm looking to get minimum 10 websites up running and getting me some passive income. Link building will be done by me via blog commenting and directory submissions. The content however is outsourced as this is the part which is really giving me pains.

    I don't foresee any problems (hopefully!) provided I focus on linkbuilding a site one at a time. I'll let everyone here know how it goes for me. Hopefully it will be a good one.

    Blog comments and directory links are weak on the link food chain. It's going to be difficult to get enough links on ten sites. However, the amount you need really depends on how competitive the keywords are. However, let's say that 1000 links is a nice round number. It's going to be a tough job to build 10x1,000 = 10,000 links.

    That's why I think 3-5 sites is doable. It's not that the webmaster can't have more than 3-5 sites and maintain them.

    You stated that quite well. I have done link building on a new site, and I devoted all my time on that one site for about a week or two. I managed to pull in over 15K backlinks. Many are high PR and dofollow and related to my niche. I jumped from 68th spot on Goog to 20th (I checked last week). I am quite satisfied with what I have done

    Just waiting on the PR update to see what that might be

    In essence, its definitely a lot more easier to promote fewer sites and have a large impact in the end.

    Thanks for the feedback bogart and 5starpix. I might hate myself someday for not taking your advice but I see this as an experiment where I want to get my hands dirty.

    To develop links for 1 website via blog commenting and another site via directory submissions. Yeah I'm going to try that.

    If you are going to be doing a test, make sure you are not doing anything else. You should solely focus on blog commenting or directory submissions.

    The test are difficult to run as there's many factors to consider like the trust of the website and the compition for the search term.

    I know people (even on this forum) with well over 1000 sites!
