    Hi

    i got 22 web 2 sites which i created for one site, all with unique high quality content. Can i use those properties to start ranking another site of mine in same niche or do i need to create fresh web 2 sites for them? All web 2 sites got links from 2-3 sources like profile links, bookmarks etc.

    Please share you experience on what works better for you, existing web 2 sites or creating fresh ones?

    thanks.

    I have wondered the same thing in the past but never tried it. If its in the same niche it should work well I would think.

    The only negative I can think of is that it could dilute the link juice to the original site? Not really sure

    Diluting the link juice isn't the real issue; the real issue is whether or not you're risking getting your sites linked up in Google's eyes. If Google thinks you're self-promoting, that could really hurt your rankings.

    You really have two choices:

    1) Don't link up your Web 2.0 sites. Leave your Web 2.0 as it is and use it to only rank one site. Build a new network for your other sites. This way, Google won't see your link network and you reduce the chances of a penalty.

    2) You can link to your other site from your existing Web 2.0 properties, but if you do this you have to cover your tracks. Your Web 2.0 sites have to link to other sites as well. You also can't link to your new site from all your properties.

    For example, let's say you link to your new site from just 12 of your existing properties. Those properties should also link to 2-4 other resources. So to Google, it looks like a random assortment of sites that link to a bunch of resourceful websites, yours included, among others. If you only link to your two sites from 22 different pages, that's way too obvious for Google.

    If my old site get penalized, i remove all old site links and add new site links instead of old ones, that way there is going to be no way google can detect the web 2 network right?

    thanks

    Its safer to keep these separate for every site.. Otherwise if you are punished for one site then you are punished for all sites as you have left a footprint.

    Everybody is so scared of Google, geez... it's not the almighty master. Just learn to work around their tyrant rules. As for you OP, no... save yourself trouble and just create a new set of web 2.0 properties.
