    Would it be worth it to create let's say 10 free blogs all related to the same niche, do all the on page SEO correctly, update them with content bi-weekly, and build quality backlinks to them, as a free alternate to creating a blog network using domain names and different hosting accounts? I've seen quite a few blogspots which have high PR's, does Google take a link from a high PR blogspot the same as a link from the same PR blog on a domain? Just curious if the effort was put in to create and update a free blog network (of around 10 blogs) and build their PR up, then link to the money site if it would give a good boost to the money site, which would have more link building done to it then just the blog network.

    Any idea's on this?

    Edit: Also if it would be worth it, would a software to automate the process (scrape+spin+post content posted on a similar niche blog) be worth creating?

    I would avoid it, you never know when they all get deleted. Creating free blogs does consume bandwidth and disk space so don't think they are just gonna pay so that you can spam on their network.

    Yes I think this is actually a good idea, wordpress, tumblr, insane journal etc have never deleted any of my web 2.0 blogs so I think this would work well. Just remember to add media to your web 2.0s, update them with content regularly and build links to them just like you would with your money site.

    Is there already a decent automated software to do this, or for the most part is it manual?
    Also, do occasionally link some of your blogs to the other blogs posts? Or would it be best to keep them all separate? Thanks for opinions!

    Ok till this last bit.

    Bot scraping and auto spinning results in crap - just the sort of crap that the blog owners delete (and ban accounts for)
    Spend a day writing say 10,000 words, create 10 or 15 blogs. If they get deleted, make sure you have saved a copy of the text and know what text went on what blog so you can re-post using a different host (a 5 minute job)

    It's not quick this way. But doing this once if you are creating an authority domain isn't a bad idea. Targethut used to be the place with the best list, but that's gone now.

    Worth remembering that it is individual URL's that rank - not domains.
    However root URL now seemes to be bouyed by onsite and offsite SEO to lower URL's (canonically) in that domain.
    So very hard in the long term to rank a WEB2 higher than your own, as you only have a link on a canonically low URL.

    Same applies to subdomains with WP and others.
    Some do though, VERY hard, need to establish real authority in terms of traffic, onsite SEOm offsite SEO, good retention and low bounce rate etc etc.

    Why go to all that trouble for a domain that's not even yours and could just be deleted by the WEB2 host whenever they felt like it?
    Build them up..sure.
    But invest too much time in them?
    Too risky.

    Sure you can. I have some that are over 3 years old that rank pretty well for some main & long tail keywords. They don't get a ton of traffic but enough to generate some sort of income and good linking properties.

    They key is to build them correctly from the start and don't go overboard with your linking! Try to come up with some sort of model so that if you have to rebuild them you already have the structure model to follow.

    Oh yeah you know who taught me how to really do it properly....you did Scritty :cool:

    Are these web 2.0's getting traffic. I just have seen some crap foreign web 2.0 sites (exteen.com) ranking for pretty competitive term. A free wordpress.com blog is on the page one.

    Seems number of pages/age is really important unless google has greylisted the web .20 sites. I am talking about ones probably from senuke list. Foreing wordpress, blogspot weebly and multiply just rank better.
