    My webhost allows unlimited domains.. I was thinking of setting up a blog farm but I wanted to ask if anyone knows if it is actually important to have the blogs on different servers / IP addresses.

    I've read and searched the forum and found that some people say it is and other that it is not important, so I haven't found any hard evidence on this matter.

    yes you should if you are talking an actual blog farm, not just 3-4 blogs.

    if you plan to link between them then yes new IPs regardless of how many

    what if he doesnt link between them?
    i have 8 sites all running wordpress all hosted at the same provider and they all link 1 way so im curious about this
    site1>site2>site3>site4>site5>site6>site7>site8

    none of them link to site 1 because it drives its own traffic.
    site 1 actully links to all the sites but none of them link back.

    it is doable, however, problems could arise if you implement automation - and for 100 blogs you want automation - especially if generating content through caffeinated content and similar plug ins on all blogs could raise a flag with your provider.

    i've experienced better link juice/ranking by running my blogs spread over 30ips, so around 3 blogs per IP/NS. it costs more, but i find it a good investment for the return it brings.

    That?s some good information here, I host my blogs on a host gator account and atm have about 20. What would your suggestion be for this number of blogs bearing in mind they are not bringing in any money at the moment? I was thinking I would leave it for the moment until traffic and income increase and then see if the income warrants more hosting accounts?

    so what's the verdict guys?


    If my hosting doesn't complain about all the CC running in the background, is it doable? or will G penalize me?

    I was planning on interlinking batches of 10 blogs between each other, all going up, funnel style.

    6 blogs link to 3 -> to 1 -> whitehat site..
    no reciprocal linking

    thanks.

    You do not really need to interlink blogs to make money. You should build up a few blogs , put some automated content and promote a little to get backlinks. Of course your blogs should have a proper niche to being in the traffic. I have used CC for a while now, it has got me some traffic. But i recommend using UAW as well..
