    For a long time, I am thinking much about this issue. Since I do not have enough experience, I need answers from you guys.

    I have found very good niches in Spanish, targeting Spain only not other Spanish spoken countries. Here is my problem:

    I have found nearly 50 niches in Spanish targeting Spain.. They all have less competition, and more than 2.000 monthly searches (between 4000-2000). So they seem to be very good choices. I have hosting accounts in USA, Canada and Netherlands.

    So

    - Should I have domain names targeting Spain like mykeyword.es or is mykeyword.com alright?

    - Should I use "-" for very long niche names like my-very-long-niche-name.com or is myverylongnichename.com OK? which one is better?

    - Should I have a hosting account in Spain since all my niches will be mostlu visited by People living in Spain? Or my hosting accounts in USA, Canada and Netherlands good enough? Can you say that having a hosting account in the targeted country is a must?

    - What is the ideal number of niches to host on an shared hosting account? Is 25 stable? Will it make a problem for the hosting company if I have a monthly total traffic of 100K unique visitors for all those 25 niches hosted on one shared hosting account? Or should I have around 10 niches hosted on the same account?

    - Will it be a problem for me to host those 25 niches on the same account? I mean, will the Big G make an actions against it? Does it Like or dislike such a thing?

    - Since they are not autoblogs and not do-and-forget systems, what is the best way to manage them? I read that setting up WPMU and using domain mapping plug-in is the best way for centralization of management. What do you think about it? Did you ever try such an approach?

    Thanks very much.

    --- geo targeted domain is not must but it will certainly help...

    - Should I use "-" for very long niche names like my-very-long-niche-name.com or is myverylongnichename.com OK? which one is better?
    --- It's ok to use hyphens but they don't generate confidence which will be drawback for it, if possible use without hyphen....

    - Should I have a hosting account in Spain since all my niches will be mostlu visited by People living in Spain? Or my hosting accounts in USA, Canada and Netherlands good enough? Can you say that having a hosting account in the targeted country is a must?
    --- Again it's not necessary but using hosting in targeted country will help.

    - What is the ideal number of niches to host on an shared hosting account? Is 25 stable? Will it make a problem for the hosting company if I have a monthly total traffic of 100K unique visitors for all those 25 niches hosted on one shared hosting account? Or should I have around 10 niches hosted on the same account?
    --- Depends upon your host, if they can give you good plan it's possible... I was using shared hosting from hostgator and it had 100+ domains... Few of them were bringing 100k+ traffic in total... So it depends upon hosting account which you gonna take (space and bandwidth)

    - Will it be a problem for me to host those 25 niches on the same account? I mean, will the Big G make an actions against it? Does it Like or dislike such a thing?
    --- No you can host them on same account but in case you planning to connect them then you might consider using different C class IP hosting to take full advantage of link juice...

    - Since they are not autoblogs and not do-and-forget systems, what is the best way to manage them? I read that setting up WPMU and using domain mapping plug-in is the best way for centralization of management. What do you think about it? Did you ever try such an approach?
    --- I don't have much experience in this so some one will else answer this...

    Hope I was able to answer your questions to satisfactory level... Those sites should rank easily and you should start making money from them very soon... :)

    Although I pushed the button for thanking, I felt that I also should write it again here. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR ANSWERS.

    One more thing that I forgot to write:
    Since I have got 50 domains, I will use WordPress to market those niches. I can only use 10 WordPress themes for all them. In other words, I will use only 10 themes for all 50 niche WP sites. So, every 5 niches will have the same theme. Will it be a drawback?

    I think the WP themes can be used for one or more than 5 blogs, that can be important for your site guests not for Search engines.

    Same theme is used by thousands of people all over internet so should not be issue... Although it's always good to have as less footprint as possible...

    It's not very tough to customize themes so do little tweaking with every blog based on niche... :)
