    I've just recently stepped into white hat seo driven blogging and my goal is to build up a portfolio of sites that provide livable income from adsense and affiliate products asap. My question is:

    How many of you have a small number of high income earning sites vs a large number of low income producing sites?

    My goal is to go for a smaller number of high income sites but I'd like to hear some feedback from some guys who are seeing success with both approaches...

    Id go for higher number of lower income, that way if 1 or 5 get screwed up, your not totally screwed. Its more work, but also way more stable.

    The reason I ask is because I'm starting to build out a few SEO powered sites that are targeting local niches that have crazy high CPC rates (like over $30) with pretty solid traffic and no competition.

    So logically I want to build out a site that is very high quality to try and get it up to the top and stay there.

    Are any of you guys doing similar things? Building a handful of high revenue sites?

    Even though you're chasing those high cpc words, don't count on actually getting the average of those.

    The ones you see on G keywords. It just doesn't happen like that, even though you see those reported averages.
