    Over the years I've heard of people setting up a large number of sites (100+) that each bring in a tiny bit of traffic but together bring in a lot of income.
    Is this still possible in today's seo environment (post Panda/Penguin, etc.)? I mean it wouldn't seem practicable to do link building, content promotion, etc for this number of sites. I'm not opposed to doing black hat tactics but I want to build a business for the long term. Any thoughts on how to build an affiliate business like this?

    I think it's still possible, but just imagine how much work that is to manage 100+ sites. You'd have to be targeting longtails and know how to build backlinks efficiently without killing your budget.

    I have also heard people who own these kind of networks of sites wish and dreamed they had built one mega site, put in all the resources within their disposal and make it a success.

    I have always preferred the mega site over the minor, well that's me..

    I know of a few people who do quite well with many mini sites...and as W9go mentioned, they build many but put their energy into the successful ones of the group and usually build those out. Personally, I too once preferred the larger authority site, however if it doesn't turn out to be a 'winner' it's just as big a wasted effort and expense.

    I'm struggling to manage 20 sites. I have started going towards the large authority site model and am merging smaller sites into these new sites. Much easier to keep content fresh and not spread myself too thin. I'd say it's still best to have a few sites in case one gets a google slap.

    I have got lots of niche sites. I also have several authority blogs. I may say that all the things stated above are 100% right. I am spending a lot of energy on mini sites since they are too many. On the other hand they are my guarantee for a steady income. And authority sites, once they start to attract visitors, you may start to enjoy life...

    Yes it is possible to make or have lot of affiliate sites at the same time. You can promote your business with couples of affiliate sites.
