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.
