    I found a list online of the top 30 free sites where you can set up your own blog (wordpress, blogger, blogspot, etc). Would it be worth it to create a blog at all these places and link them to my site, or would it just be a waste of time?

    All those new Blogs would have a page rank of 0. I would call it a waste of time. It would be 1 million times more effective if you had backlinks from high PR relevant pages.

    Some people like to get any type of backlink though so it's up too you.

    its been a year when i started creating accounts for 10 free blogging sites and linkbuild them when this blogs starts to get some traffic and and gain some pr i started to turn the keywords into anchor text pointing to my main site and it does good... as of now some of this blogs are has pr 4 and 6 and with decent amount of traffic.. i think it much better than submitting articles to crappy article directories that is not crawled by the bots. Now i have a total of 100 blogs but most of them are custom wordpress hosted on c class webhosting. most of this blogs are Pr 1 but the old ones are having pr 3 to 6

    Even though my blog on that domain would be a 0 wouldn't it be of some value since the actual domain would have a much higher PR? Im sure theres a difference between domian PR and URL PR but I havnt read enough about it yet.

    You said the main domain has good PR. So, it's worth to create your own blogs on those sites. But make sure to update your blogs frequently with new content. Don't let the blogs fall asleep;)

    Yeh this, simply creating one and sticking your link in won't offer much value. You need to create some content on there and try to update it every so often so Google doesn't think its just a 'hit and run' link blog.

    Yea I agree with Giuni however all those links pointing back to your site may not be worth it if there rank are 0.

    If you gonna register manually and later place decent content over there it's hell a lot of time. From the other hand you'll have your own mini net!

    As Peter said, a high TLD autority platform such as blogger will offer its sub domains (your blogs) a degree of link power even though the blog itself is a PR0. I have also found that on these high authority platforms getting PR to the sub domains is easier with the weight of the authority site behind it - that is compared to a low level platform without the authority.

    However, despite the above, if you do not keep your blogs active the chances are your blog will languish in the serps and pick up only a small amount of benefit - keep them updated regulary with good quality content.....

    It sounds like something Im gonna try. I am thinking about creating say 10 different blogs on 10 free blog networks. Now I am also working on 10 different mico niche sites. Would you create 10 new blogs for each website (for a total of 100 free blogs) or just have 10 blogs total and each one points to my 10 niche sites.

    Just having 10 would be much easier and the content would get updated more frequently makeing it a more authoritive blog. The only thing I dont like about that is if a competitor checks my backlinks they can find all my sites. Thoughts?

    Personally I would initially stick with accounts you have the means to update. You will get (over time) a better return on your investment by regulary updating with good quality content. As for competitors finding all your sites, you will want to randomise your choice of platforms anyway and I assume you are not going to be linking the platforms in a link wheel fashion (this is a dying method) therefore they will only be locating a small number through checking backlinks - I would not be too concerned with this in the beginnning - focus on your own sites and don't worry about competitors snooping (that doesn't stop you from analysing their backlinks and using this to further your own efforts.
