    I did both. I set up a 20 blog farm each with 35 posts and all sites interlinked, then I started making micorsites based on keywords, then you will have all the bases covered if google ever changes their mind about ranking microsites.

    well it kind of does.... domain names with kw's do help out quite a bit. I know its not the most important thing but it does help.... Also I would not put all of my eggs in one basket. So if they ban you your enitre account is gone and your huge site is not worh as much.

    Just an observation

    I like having a lot of different smaller sites. For one thing you dont get effected by search engine rankings. If I have one big site making $10k a month a major serps change could effect my earnings a grea deal but if I have 100 sites making $100 a month and the serps change I dont see that much of an effect. Some might go up and some might go down but it all evens out and you dont get that with one big site.

    I also like to spread the sites around with several different adsense accounts in case one gets banned for some reason then you dont loose all your income, just some of it.

    It is also easier if you want to sale the sites. It is easier if you need some cash to sell off four or five sites to raise a little capital but if you just have one site you cant do that.

    Funny... I am debating this same thing right now... Like #2 I decided to do both as well. What I have done to start with was to take all my content from my niche sites , spun it, and have been populating my mega-blog with that same thing to see how it goes first. I have found that having the keyword domain is a HUGE advantage though. What I also see as a potential problem is building enough diversified backlinks to your site if you had a huge one. I dunno... I just started trying it a couple of weeks ago so I'm not sure how its going to pan out.

    guys i really don't think keywords in the domain carry alot of weight when ranking in serps or these article directories would be ass..just look up seo and look on the second page alot of those results don't have it in their domain and they are up there...i wouldn't think my ad sense account would get banned im going to try to keep it whitehat..
