    Hi

    I have 2 EMD that I have been working on for a few months both are in fairly competitive niches 1st site is No 1 for the term and earning over £1000 a month second is No 2 for it's term and earning around £800 per month.

    I have spent the last month trying to rank for some longer tail keyword's but I am wondering if my time would be better spent developing more EMD's

    Thoughts and comments please, thanks

    Without looking at the sites i'll take a stab.

    What you should do is just try to maintain them. Add new content once a week to simply keep the site turning over and so Google doesn't think the site is stale. If you can, add a blog and just buy an article from iwriter.com every week.

    I'd put most of my effort into new sites.

    So in short, do both.

    By reading the title, I first got the image you are asking for relationship advice. :deer2:

    LOL hahaha....

    Going back on topic, I agree with the idea of doing both and outsourcing the writing for your already built sites.

    From your stats it is clear that you know how to pick good niches so i say make new ones and keep adding content to previous websites. You can buy 10 articles in a time and then in wordpress publish them but make sure you schedule the posts to be published every 4-7 days or as you wish.

    One site is never really enough. It's high risk "all your eggs in one basket"
    Scale up to a level that depends on the size of site your creating. If it's a micro site then maybe add more. If it's 100 page or more sites, then maybe add another site every couple of months if you are building authority large sites even then think in terms of having 2 or 3 to hgedge your bets
    .

    Either way as Gorang said, keep adding content and doing subtle background linking. Manage as many as you are comfortable with depending on the size of the site

    Thanks for the replies,

    I thought that would be the way to go, just very time consuming as IM comes second to my main work at the moment.

    Thanks
