    Just had a quick thought,

    I was thinking is it better to keep making new sites for new niches and then building them up. Or is it just as good to buy one domain which is not niche specific instead very general and then add subdomains to make niche specific and then scrapebox backlinks to the subdomain?

    Thanks in Advance

    Dont scrapeboxa subdomains cuz they will ban the main domain aswell, its better to scrapebox a web 2.0 pages or a .info domains and link them back the the money site with a one way backlink so if there is something happen you can move them and build another..
    Good luck

    I'll keep it in mind, but I keep hearing that if this was the case, then just scrapebox your competitors

    i have found that a sub-domain will get indexed faster than a .info that is being forwarded to the site.

    If the subdomains are all on the same or similar topic maybe try subdomains. If they're of different topics go for separate domains for sure.

    Reasoning: I built a site on a subdomain of a 3 character domain, then later moved it to its own domain with a 301 redirect. Later I built a different site on a different subdomain of the same short domain I've had the damdest time getting google to realize site "b" is about a different topic than site "a" was.

    It wasn't a very intense test, but it was enough for me to realize that google does NOT treat subdomains entirely as separate entities. If all your sites will be on the same general topic then you can use the "related" nature of subdomains to your benefit, but if they're separate sites with separate topics, its going to work against you.

    If the subdomains are all on the same or similar topic maybe try subdomains. If they're of different topics go for separate domains for sure.

    Reasoning: I built a mini site on a subdomain of a 3 character domain, then later moved it to its own domain with a 301 redirect. Later I built a different site on a different subdomain of the same short domain. I've had the damdest time getting google to realize site "b" is about a different topic than site "a" was. Problems with irrelevant ads, and so on. It wasn't a very good test, but it was enough for me to realize that google does NOT treat subdomains entirely as separate entities. If all your sites will be on the same general topic then you can use the "related" nature of subdomains to your benefit, but if they're separate sites with separate topics, its going to work against you.

    P.S. Subdomains do in fact get indexed faster. This is the same phoenomenon as buying an old previosly developed domain and building your site on it. The domain is already indexed so google sees it as an update rather than a new site. I've read that with some trickery this phoenomenon has been used to avoid the sandbox. (though I don't have proof of it)

    I will go for .info's, also, subdomains can be harder to promote in various places.
