    First of i would like to explain that I am not interested in making money online thru ads affiliates or anything like that. My main goal is to keep my site first on google for certain keywords. My business clientele depends on google so NO black hat methods for me.

    I have 20 domains that contain keywords from 500 to 25,000 monthly/local searches.
    All domains are niche specific for the services i offer.

    What is the best way to use them to empower my main site?
    I have considered blog farming but it is to much work plus C class ip's cost.
    My interest is not to get a back link. My interest is to get more clients.
    I was thinking: For example 1000 people search monthly/locally for dog food prices. Lets say i have dogfoodprices(.)com . Add 5 good original articles some backlinks, article submission, and in couple months it would be number 1 on google for dog food prices.
    The question is from this point how do i direct them to my main site?
    Do i just ad a banner on every site with my main site link and phone number?
    How is google going to see this? Would it effect my main site in anyway?

    What would you do?

    So you're using micro-niche specific domains to reach for different keywords related to different services that you offer, then directing them to your single main site for the sell?

    Personally, I would make it pretty seemless by co-branding the micro sites, I.e. welcome to dogfoodprices(dot)com - part of the massonspy network (you get the idea)

    Then with the phone number you can say something like "call massonspy now" or whatever your main business name is. This sets the expectation so that they don't freak out when you answer the phone with a different business name. Also if you have lead forms on each site, this is great. Some people won't want to call, and might not click off the site to do a lead gen. You could use one php script for the same leadgen form on each site, and have a hidden field for "source" that tells you which site the form was submitted from. Then the script can redirect back to that site.

    With the very limited info I have on your business model, I think this is how I would handle it.

    Can you give me an example of the lead form you mentioned?

    Sorry been offline a while. Probably the easiest way to configure it would be to have a form on each site with any fields that you want. They don't have to be the same. But they can all point at a single php script on your main site, I.e. form action = mainsite.com/submit.php .. you get the idea. Then the action script can just grab the entire POST array from the form, dump the contents of the fields into an email and phpmail it to you. A hidden "source" field on the form would tell you what site the lead came from, and you can use php to grab the referrer and bounce the user back to the site they came from. This would be completely seemless from a user's point of view and would allow you to generate leads from many sites and dump them in a centralized place with just 1 script.
