    Im Creating a Network of niche sites with exact match domains and i feel pretty confident in them ranking, but i cant seem to pick if i should focus my network for Funneling traffic to my main site or use them for seo. OR if there is a way to do both? what do you think, any help thanks

    Also I have noticed most seo hosting are shitty and Mine have been going down a lot, which is also going to hurt my ranking. I don't want to pay for Super expensive hosting so im not sure on what to do.

    I am doing the same, and kinda stuck in the same dilemma. I have most of them ranking in the top 5, bringing in about 10,000-15,000 visits per day. I'm going to funnel it to a new money site of mine, but also want to add text links to raise the rank of my money site, which is sitting #6 for my main niche.

    select the best sites and funnel the others into them. though, are all sites completely seperated from each other, hence not linked in any way?

    So you think i should just forget about the idea of using them for seo purposes? Most of them are about a month old with little backlinking and ranking and I am buying every single EMD for every keyword which should drive really targeted traffic.

    Example - cheap blue shoes is the emd and i will be sending them to cheap blue shoes category page. I have never done my own network of sites but every single seo hosting company is garbage. And is it really worth it to pay 400 dollars a month for seohosting.com for only 50-60 different c class ips?

    The other day my sites were down (cclasshosting.com) and then my last host (ideastack.com) they were always down. Def gonna hurt my rankings on these guys.

    Jon. So have you had problems with your seo hosting? This is what I came to figure out.

    A bunch of IPS, cheap hosting = shitty uptime, bad for ranking EMDS but good ip diversity

    Not many Ips, expensive = good uptime, good for ranking those EMDS, but not much seo benefit

    I don't really use SEO hosting. I just use different hosts. I have about 100+ right now. You're going to be screwed either way. If you have 100 hosts like me, you're bound for some to go down on a regular basis. I hired someone to check them twice a week. And of course I just found out the fucker wasn't checking them, and two of my sites have been down for a month. One was a PR5 and one was a PR4, both not even indexed anymore it has been so long.

    Even then, isn't that get expensive? Yeah i had the same problem. You got to just run a live check on them every few days yourself. Hmm... Sounds like a dammed if you do and a dammed if you don't sort of scenario

    Yeah gets expensive. Can find some deals out there sometimes though.
    But if in a years time I have 100 PR3-5, it will be worth it. Say it's $500/month even.
    If it generates even a $20 sale per day, it pays for itself. My network is brining in 10,000+ visitors per day. As I mentioned in VIP, another company offered to buy my whole network already as well. So it should all pay off in the end.

    Have you noticed a decrease in ranking due to the fluctuations of your hosting uptime/downtime?

    Sounds like its working out for you:)

    umm, most that went down aren't even part of my niche. I have about 70 (soon to be 100) EMDs for my niche, and about 50 expired, purchases domains with high PR. Most that went down were the PR ones, like the PR4 and PR5 ones I mentioned above.

    I had a one good one ranking #1, and it got hacked and I didn't know for about 10 days, it went to #4, then to like #10, and I was wondering WTF< so I checked it and seen it was hacked. As of a couple days ago it went back to #1. (took about 4-5 days). I think there were a couple EMDs that went down, and they eventually went back up.
