Hi, I will create my own high-quality (useful content for readers) blog network using wordpress. The blogs will be made mainly for adsense. It will not be developed for selling SEO services. I am not new to IM. I am a computer engineer, have an authority website, 9+ years experience with IM, and a few dedicated servers. But i did not have time to work on (black hat) SEO heavily and lack experience in building blog networks. I will share my rough plan with you. Let me know what you think. Each blog will target different but related keywords. For example, if the niche is "PHP", one blog will be about "php programming" (e.g. phpprogramming.com), another will be about php IDEs, (e.g. php-ide.com) etc. These blogs will not target only the main keywords used in the domain (e.g. php IDE for php-ide.com) , they will target related long tail keywords e.g. "best php ide", "searching in php ide" etc. (So they are similar to EMD sites but they will be larger. For example, i will post at least 1-2 high quality articles to them per month.) All blogs will be made for adsense. So in the long run, for many web sites (e.g. 100+), i want to have at least a 5-figure monthly income, when monthly costs (e.g. hosting and content) are subtracted. I have some questions to start with: 1. Hosting: I plan to buy 2-5$ shared hosting plans. I did not try them but i guess they can handle these wordpress blogs without any problems. No two nlogs in the same host will link to each other, so no two blogs link to each other using the same C-class IP. Assuming that i will create 100 sites at the end and assuming that a blog will link up to 10 other related blogs (using in-content links), i will need to purchase 10+ hosting plans on different hosts. The cost seem resonable. Any suggestions related to hosting? 2. Domain: I want to hide my activities from Google to keep my authority web sites safe. Is hiding my name while registering domains (by paying extra for each domain) suggested and enough? Or can google see those hidden names since Google is a domain registerer itself. 3. Interlinking inside the blog: For most of the articles (e.g. %70), i will have 1-2 in-content links to other 2 articles in the same blog. In this way, articles will share link juice. 4. Interlinking blogs: I dont want to interlink blogs heavily. As i said above: "a blog will link up to 10 other related blogs (using in-content links)". So even though each blog will have hundreds of articles on them, i will get only one link from one of these articles. A blog will get maximum 10 backlinks from 10 other blogs. Can this be detected as a link-wheel by Google? Can i get penalized because of this? 5. Linking to my authority web site in the same niche: Can i place in-content links to my related authority web sites rarely and randomly. Let say, i have 100 blogs. Can i place 20 in-content links from 20 of them (1 link from each of 20-blogs) so that some link juice goes to my authority web sites. Is it risky? So even though each blog will have hundreds of articles on them, i will get only one link from one of these articles. And i will do this only from 20 of 100+ blogs. Note that i will use web2.0 sites in the same way. So please dont, simply, suggest me to use web2.0 sites instead of wordpress blogs for this purpose. I will use web2.0 in a similar way. But since i can not earn money with adsense from them, i have this plan which is also good for diversification, i think. Let me know your opinions. Thanks.
