    I am an affiliate and have a lot of similar sites in the same niche. I been told I should break up my sites in google analytics because google does not like a person having many sites about the same general thing. Is there any truth to this or is it a bunch of crap?

    Cheers

    thanks for the reply I am aware I can do these things but the real question was should I do it, is there a benefit to it, etc

    Personally I would go one step further and not use GA for SE sites. You want to give G as little info as possible about the performance of your sites, especially stuff like bounce ratio and time on site which could be directly included in the ranking calculations.

    If you log into all your GA accounts from the same IP and computer, that isn't hugely different from putting them all in one account. They already have a patent for identifying whether it's the same or different people behind the same IP.
