    Hello everyone,

    I have a niche site with probably 1000 visitors a month. Makes a few bucks a day. Now I thought of the following because I want to join another niche:

    Instead of creating a new site, rank with this site in another niche (because it's in the same category)
    What can I do?

    1. Create subdomains for each niche using multisite network in Wordpress
    2. Make it an authority site instead of niche site

    Another question for solution 1: How does Google rank these network sites? Will it be ranked as a site on his own, because it's using his own theme and own map on my database?

    I have no experience with multi sites so if you know something about it let me now :)

    But does Google like it this way? Because I rarely see someone doing this

    Google treat a sub-domain as a new site. You still get some authority from your root domain tho but it ain't much

    Option 2 sounds good to me. Keep building high quality content and links to your site.
