    So I'm slowly but surely learning more and more about blogging, SEO, affiliates, and gathering all the information together to start a website. What I need advice on, is if I should create one big "lifestyle" type blog/website where I create content about several different niches/topics, or if it's better to create a different website for each niche.

    Yes, one website for each niche. That's what i'm currently doing.

    I have 5 websites right now of different niches. I monetize them through adsense. I get traffic from Facebook groups. That's all i can say.

    I wasn't asking you to share anything specific about your sites lol. I'm asking you to elaborate on your opinion. You're saying you think it's better to have different websites, but didn't explain why.

    I know owners who run those types of blogs successfully, you have to remember that running multiple sites is far more work than running one. Lifestyle incorporates so many different aspects, I'd say do one.

    Thanks for the input. I'm a little confused on one thing. With all the social media methods to generate traffic and clicks such as creating like 50+ instagram accounts, or commenting in/leaving links in a bunch of Facebook groups, I always see the person describing their methods saying that you should use a different landing page for each account. Does that mean they are creating a new niche website for each of these social media accounts? Like if someone is using 50 different IG accounts to generate traffic, are they directing them to 50 different websites, or the same website?

    Probably best for me to just focus on creating the website first, and get some content up huh? And then worry about methods to generate traffic later? It's a little overwhelming to try and learn everything at once.

    Don't try and do everything at once. Make a plan and stick to it, everything will fall into place don't worry.
    i can plan websites for months in advance before launching. Research your niche, make a scrape file and gather everything in there. Always plan ahead as it saves time and headaches later.

    Good points. One last question and I'll quit bugging you. Since I plan to build one big website with a few different "sub niches" on it, I really want to have a nice/professional looking website. I know the popular way to make one is using wordpress since it's free, but a lot of the websites I see people making for niches just look really cheap, and if I were someone who stumbled upon a lot of them I would immediately click away. I have a good deal of money saved up, so I have funds to invest in my website, do you have a recommendation on a service to use to build a nice looking blog/website?

    But why create a different website for each niche? As someone previously replied, it's a lot more work to build up and promote 5 different websites than it would be to do it for 1. Can you elaborate on the benefits you see in having 5 different websites as opposed to a single one?

    Having 5 different websites can appeal to different people, It also makes it easier to compete against the huge lifestyle websites. And it also gives you a greater base of support if one was to fail or get done for copyright, Google penalties etc.

    different website for each niche is best, drive traffic from social newtorks like facebook, twitter etc and build high authority backlinks from tumbler. You can win the game at last .

    I use kentooz.com they are good, remember running multiple sites at once increases costs and time, you also have to keep track of updates etc. Why have multiple sites? You will need to have different social media accounts, link build for different sites, create awareness for 5 different sites. If you are doing lifestyle then it's pretty much the same niche as people are looking for, well, a certain lifestyle. Make one site a destination.

    Why have different sites for what basically is the same niche, lifestyle. You say different sites, then social media which would all have to be set up seperately, lot of work
