    I've been perusing the idea of having a network of like 25 blogs / websites to link to my client and adsense sites. For this number of sites they would need to be generic blogs. I would want to post non spun content to them and build them up and get some page rank. Would the costs associated with running a small network like that be wort the possible benefits?

    It can be costly. Nothing crazy but it takes a lot of time. You need to buy some good aged domains, and you need to invest in good unique C-class IP hosting.

    But if you do it correctly, you have an extremely powerful ranking tool that you can use for years.

    For competitive niches, its practically a must have for first page rankings.

    My niches will vary I am sure, so would creating a network of generic sites and blogs still be useful even though they are not industry specific? Basically I work as a in house SEO, also starting my own firm so I want some powerful ranking tools for new clients and also my new adsense sites i am going to start launching. By the way Taktical, I got my first SEO client using your contract forms you posted on offline marketing. =D

    In my experience, private blog networks work for low-medium competition niches. I would also be looking at more than 25 sites for more competitive niches.

    You'll need to do a cost/benefit analysis to answer your final question more accurately, for example, costs of buying, hosting, promoting, etc. against potential income from your IM sites.
