I basically have 2 questions, the first is about subdomains. I am thinking of setting up a Wordpress multisite with subdomains. So I would purchase a generic domain name, ie: mydomain.com then run specific niche websites under subdomains, such as coffee.mydomain.com and sports.mydomain.com I was thinking of making the "main" domain a place that shows the latest articles and comments from any of the subdomains. ie: From cheese.mydomain.com - Article - Read more.... (link to cheese.mydomain.com/article) From cars.mydomain.com - Article - Read more.... (link to cars.mydomain.com/article) Hope that makes sense. Is that a kind of site layout google wouldn't like? Unrelated subdomains linked by a generic domain? Second question, I am starting monetizing with simple amazon links. Write articles, link to related book topics on amazon. Show specific books throughout the article. Is there a point where I hit "too much" affiliate linking? I might go like this Title Adsense (?) Paragraph 1 Paragraph 2 Nice table with links to 4 related books on Amazon Paragraph 3 Paragraph 4 Paragraph 5 Nice table with links to 4 related books on Amazon Paragraph 6 Closing text Link to other related articles on subdomain Please comment if you think this is good/bad site design. I don't want to invest in too many seperate domains before I really start earning money online. Hence why I want to make subdomains. I have many ideas for small niche sites and I think they would best fit into subdomains with adsense and amazon monetization but I don't want to be punished for linking too many ads (is 8 books too much? 12 books? 20?). I realize there is no single answer but curious your thoughts. Thank you.
