1 Website or 50 Websites
« on: April 15, 2012, 02:42:08 PM »
Hi Jon,
You once did a case study with 50 websites.
My question is this: which is better (all things being equal or easy):
          50 different websites with local search of 1000? OR
          1 website with 50 different keywords with local search of 1000?
Thank you.

Hi,
I meant which is better:
50 websites with 1 keyword each and (1000 local searches or better per keyword) OR
1 website with 50 good keywords and (1000 local searches or better per keyword)?
Thank you.
Murrey

That depends on the site and content. If you are planning very high quality content with a great looking site that's not obviously designed just to get people to click ads, then I'd say go with one large, theme focused site that you can build some authority into.

But if your site is designed with the primary purpose of generating ad clicks, or the content is low to mid quality, I'd go with 50 individual sites. That way they are less likely to draw Google's attention and get penalized or deindexed, and if a few do you won't lose all of your hard work in one blow.

That's great advice.
Thanks, Jon.
