Anyone here have 50 or more blogger sites? Is it safe to build out 100+ blogspot blogs?

    Ok, I realize it's a general question, but basically i'll be sticking by the "rules" and just doing adsense and amazon (would do CPA if i knew it were ok)

    I have inquired directly via my adsense account, but it takes them forever to to respond and i'm ready to get started.


    My main question is with all of the posts I've read regarding blogger sites getting banned is there an issue with multiple sites on one adsense account or is it that most of these guys coming on here complaining are doing things that break their terms?


    I've always built out my sites using Wordpress and no experience with Blogger, so it's be great to hear back from someone who has successful launched 50 or more blogger blogs/sites.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would never use blogger or any free platform for my money site. What would you do if you built 50 sites on blogger and you were making good money and 1 day they all got banned for some stupid reason?

    You have no control over free blogging platforms, and they can shut you down at any time. Plus, what if you decide you want to flip your sites for a nice profit down the road? You wouldn't be able to sell a Blogger site for much, if anything, whereas if it was your own self-hosted WP site, you could easily list it on Flippa and get something for it.

    This is true,which is the reason why I haven't bothered to go this route thus far.
    Recently I thought though...hell it's "free" why not?

    Besides, I'm thinking they could be good testing sites before I invest in the actual domains. There's nothing worst than having more paid for domains than you can actually handle, that is to say, build out.Or the ultimate, only to realize th domain s a big fail.

    Still I appreciate your take on it, as it's pretty much how mine has been for the longest.

    I made a bunch at one point, some are still around some have been banned I haven't kept up on it at all. They were auto blogs using e-mail feeds though is why. Just make sure they're not linked together and even if one gets banned then one gets banned. Don't spend too much time on it, just general quick setup.

    Yeah but the whole $8 you spend on a domain name isn't shit. Even if the site doesn't work out, it's not like you wasted a lot of money on it. And if all else fails, you can always sell the site you built and I'm sure you should be able to at least recoup your $8 domain investment.

    good suggestions, however OP can't really keep those blogs separated unless if he doesn't want to setup 50 adsense accounts as well :)

    imho 50 blogger blogs/adsense account is just too much, Google is cracking down on autoblogs lately hardly than ever and i don't think you're planning to write the content on those 50 blogs by hand, am i right? :p

    you can try it tho (you can always have new adsense account), you don't have much to lose besides your time, but if i were you i wouldn't invest too much time in this venture and i wouldn't be surprised when Google bans your blogs all at once

    i did have like 10+ until today. i realized i never update them for like a year now. but some are still making penny here and penny there. i did a micro niche blogger after I've read the micro niche site. some are in page 1of google and some are in page 2-4. that is from less than 2M search result. others are like less than 1M.

    Thats VERY true; I missed the whole adsense part. I thought we were talking link farm or micro niche sites.

    Hey really appreciate the feedback from all of you guys: Wowhaxor, HoneyBird,J1218,dima054

    So yeah for starters i was gonna outsource someone to make all the blogs for me @ $1.50hr (even got one guy as low as .89cent

    2nd I was going more for static sites (believe I will/would not be wasting my time "blogging" per se, although not all of my content would be spun or rehashed.

    @wowhaxor yeah, at this point i only have one adsense account. I've heard it's "easy" to get another, still i'm not interested in screwing up my legit account. so if nothing else i should perhaps consider another account for my mutli-site experiment.

    any suggestions anyone where here (or elsewhere) to set-up another account? is it as simple as using a separate bank account, even though it will bare the same account holder's name? or would it be best to go with a completely fake account. (i'm ahting the sound of this shhhh already...)

    Thanks!

    So , i'm confused. You do or don't still have your sites? Yes like you I'm planning on doing micro niches and current trends.

    ooopss. sorry about that. yes,I still have those blogs up and running until now.and I am still making money from those. what I did is create like 10 blogger blogs or so, then register another gmail account and create again another 10 blogs or so. just for me not to have all my blogs in a single account.

    Although it's free, you can't create unlimited blogs. First up, you will have to confirm the max limit per account. Some say, it's ten, some say it's 50, others claim 100. Secondly, I would rather buy info domain at $1, rather than opting for a free platform. If you buy 50 or 51 domain at once, most providers offer discount. So, 50 info domain will cost you less than $50. Lastly, rarely anyone purchases websites created on free platform. So, you will be left with those in case you change your mind in the near future. However, you will be able to sell the info. domain websites for at least $5,$10 each or more, depending upon the earnings.

    i see, but are they all going to the same adsense account? or are you even using adsense at all?
    in short how are you monetizing?

    i think what you're saying makes sense for the most part, if nothing else in theory.

    1) Confirming the "limit" has been a damm headache, you would think Google would just simply state the number and/or respond via email or something! No, you have to go to some silly-ass Adsense forums where hundreds of ppl/users guess about the number!

    2) I currently own abut 100 domains. (.coms/nets primarily) Yeah true, I could get a discount on .info's (and any other TLD for that matter) but im interested in building out a network of adsense sites and having the opportunity to test the niches BEFORE I get too invested. The same $80-$150 I spent on domains could buy hundreds of blogger sites I could have created via oDesk or even Fiverr for that matter within 1-2 days. Plus some SEO and other things. in fact, from my calculations well under $100. Still, it's true there's simply more control with owning the URL's

    Perhaps I should try to just use them as link farms or something related.

    I wouldn't waste my time building anything on something I didn't own. Google can pull the entire account in a heart beat.
