    Hey BHW!
    I would love to get some opinion from you.
    I have a few micro niche sites with 2k-3k exact US monthly searches ranking
    on google and i also have 1 big site with a strange domain name but with multiple
    pages that also are like micro niche keywords but without the EMD domain
    and all in 1 site.
    This pages also rank well in google for their keywords even without the EMD
    and because of good content and SEO and they even perform better then
    my EMD niche site.
    So my question to is if it will be smarter to have more micro niche sites tarketing
    just 1 main keyword and a few LSI keywords, or having a big site targeting a lot
    of micro niche keywords in the same niche?

    At the moment i have both, but i think that if i will focus on just 1 of this 2
    then i will have even better results.
    Thank you!

    My own opinion would be that you will get the most traffic with a lot of large sites targeting a lot of long tails (what you call micro niche keywords). EMDs are overrated unless you are targeting a specific high value buyer keyword. Generally you don't need an EMD to hit a long tail - you just need content that prominently features the keyword, plus sufficient backlinks.

    How to create lots of large sites efficiently is an exercise left to the reader. I currently have over 1 million pages in the index and get tons of long tail traffic with pretty much zero EMDs except for ones that I bought accidentally. I'd rather have a short, catchy domain that looks good in the serps.

    IMO larger sites are safer for the long run. MNS (or at least the way most marketers do them) are pretty thin and delicate to penalties. Of course, if you spend more time and effort into your MNS then they can also be pretty good.

    Moral of the story = whatever you do, do it well or don't do it at all.

    Worst thing is to make a bunch of lower quality sites and have them penalized in some way. Some people might say money now is better but I side towards financial security.

    Thanks you for your good advices!
    Well i guess that having a site with lots of long tail indexed pages really makes you like
    an authority site and in this days maybe that is what google wants you to have, so who
    can fight with them lol.
