    So, I'm setting up my own niche private blog network and I'm hoping someone can help me with some questions I have. Here's a little background.

    1) I'm buying aged domains with PR that are specific to my niche using different registrars and privacy on each one.
    2) I'm setting up each domain with a WordPress, Joomla, etc. or HTML site. For all of the HTML sites, I am creating mini, business looking sites with the normal pages (Home, Services, Contact, About,etc). For the blogs, I'm adding 4-5 unique, hand-written articles.

    Here are my questions, please chime up if you have any insight to offer...

    1) I'm hosting each site with a different hosting company. Do I still need private name servers or is it fine that they will all have different name servers since they are all on different webhosts?
    2) For the blog sites - is 4-5 handwritten articles (400-500 words each) enough?
    3) For the static sites... should I add more content? Or just leave them as normal, business looking sites?

    General questions:

    1) Is it save to build some Web 2.0 links to my private network sites?
    2) Should I use Google Authorship with the sites on the private network?


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Do not use the same Google author. It will connect them all and you want each of them to be a stand alone site.

    I think it is better not to have private name servers in your case... it is natural this way that most small businesses use the default from their hosting provider.

    For the blogs it might be better to increase a bit the number of posts... over time to have at least 20 (this number is not written in stone).

    All in all, I think you are in the right direction. Well done.

    If you are using aged domains that are specific to your niche, is there a reason you are not just grabbing the original content from archive.org and using it? Seems like it would save you a lot of work from having to product new articles.

    The main reason is copyright... the last thing I want is a copyright or dmca notice with the sites.

    to what purpose are you building this network ?

    if your main purpose is to sell footy links then forget about it... it's becoming easier and easier for G workers to uncover link farms and networks because while they've evolved their game people who try to build link networks just hang out on forums asking people who used to build link networks how to build link networks :)

    come up with your own idea, even if it's a stupid one, it will be a lot tougher for G workers to discover you if your network is under their filters (whichever they are) and you act stupid

    the more random the better

    NO to private "blog" network and YES to private network. You will be saddled with the problem of finding worthy domains due to the large number of fake PR sites out there but once you are able to figure out how it works, you can rank for "business", "herpes", "laptops" and any difficult keyword without problem, you only need time and good resources to buy the domains.

    Don't need custom nameservers, and don't waste time on web 2.0s. Buy blasts of links using relevant anchors so that relevancy and even more juice flows through to your money sites. And def. no authorship b/c of the footprint.
