    I am looking to try to set up a network of sites for myself,

    they will be interlinked, is it okay to host all on the same spot? or would I be better off hosting separately?

    Im thinking of having a bunch of mini sites that all feed into my main site if that makes sense

    You want different IPs for each site or the backlinks you give your site will have little or no weight towards the SERPs.

    How would you suggest setting up then? that you could have the different IPS?

    Dispite popular belief, multiple sites on the same IP WILL help rankings (source: i host most of my clients sites on the same server and the linkbacks alone give me top 3 ranks for my local area) but not a noticeable effect for any competitive terms.

    To make a true macro net you will need multiple, seperate hosts all in different places. You can make a mini net using a host that offeres multiple IPs but the major search engines seem to be catching on to these.

    What i have done reasonably succesfully is use multiple small hosts (search forums for small but long standing hosts, and ask them where their data centre is) who charge nominal fees ($20 a year) for low bandwidth accounts, then make multiple unlinked mini nets.

    This works well for me as i need to rank many unrelated sites.

    Eventually your "mini net" will grow, and won't having them all on separate hosting accounts be a pain to manage? A more efficient way might be to get c-class hosting from multiple providers.

    I wouldn't recommend inter-linking them. That's a pretty big footprint, and especially if you follow other people's advice here and do it right with separate hosts, c-classes, etc... then you are ruining a lot of that diversification by inter-linking.

    What I did a while ago was go with a Class C network, and have only one or two domains per IP - using Wordpress multisite you can have multiple websites setup under the same WP domain.

    Pretty easy to manage, just stopped doing it a while ago.
