    Does anyone use Wordpress Multi Sites to manage your Wordpress blog network?

    Does anyone also use WordPress MU Domain Mapping?

    1) Wordpress Multi Sites looks very great and can save lots of time to update the whole blog network, however, how can u able to give each blog a class C IP? Now when I set up the network, all the blogs are sharing the same IP which is bad for SEO, any professional member know how to do that?

    2) Please share your experience to manage a blog network and all the plugins, scripts and third party services to make the management easier, I have found some services but none of them seems can do the perfect job.

    Please kindly share your experiences, thank you so much :)

    Check those plugins. I do my first try with WP networks, but those look extremely useful
    cets_blog_defaults
    YD Network-wide options
    and Google xml sitemaps network version

    I've tried that. Verdict - royal pain in the arse. Not worth it.

    I now manage everything (installation, upgrades, posting) via little
    known cheap ($30) desktop tool from New Zealand called WPDesktop.

    It is farking awesome.

    Get someone who knows what to do to do it for you. This little snow ball can become huge if you don't know what you are doing.

    Can you elaborate on why it's a pain in the butt? I just built a WP MU network and like to know some opinions before continuing.
