    How many pages do your typical websites have?

    I'm planning on scratching my recent idea of having mini niche sites with only about 20 pages per site because it's getting costly to purchase all domains.

    My new plan is to create a rather large site with a boat load of pages to rank with.

    which do you think performs better...a large website or a small website?

    I prefer a mix, some with just a few pages, many with a dozen or two, and some with thousands.

    As far as which performs better, it depends on what you're trying to do. Product based sites are naturally going to be as big as the number of products you're targeting. Info and content type sites, depending on topic, they sky may be the limit.

    Try to have a plan for a given site. What you expect people to get out of it, what you plan to deliver to them. That will often dictate the size.

    Crixus, for sites with "unlimited" pages, are you using some type of bot or plugin to help with the creation and maintenance of those sites?

    Primarily autoblogging plugins and custom database sites which can be updated. Some of them are just old and have had a lot of stuff added over the years.

    I have a few big ones but most of mine have 10-20 pages. I do not see how the cost of the domains is really an issue. Call it $10 a year for the domain, that is less then .03 a day to break even for the domain costs. If you are not getting that out of your sites than the number of pages is not your problem. Even a very small niche site only making .50 a day is bringing in $182 a year which is would leave your site netting $172 after your domain costs. Your domains are really the smallest cost you have percentage wise.

    You will rank better with a bigger website, hands down.

    It doesn't matter what keyword you are targeting. The bigger website will always have more content, potential inner backlinks, etc. and so it will rank you better.

    It has more authority than a site with only a few pages.

    But at the end of the day, it's all about backlinks.

    If you have a fool proof plan to make unlimited amounts of websites making $0.50 a day on auto pilot, you should be the richest man in the world. Some sites make money, and some make none. For most people, you have to register 5 to 10 sites, just to find 1 that actually hits and makes profit.
