    I have a professional site that offers certain services (not online).
    Overtime i have purchased almost 20 domains that contain good keywords related to my business and location.
    I havent used them so far coz i havent had much competition. Now things have changed and i need to use my back up resources.

    What would be the best way to use them to make sure i am still protected #1

    For example lets assume business industry is house renovation .
    My domains would be renovationInBoston.com TilesInBoston.com FlooringtilesBoston. All my domains are keywords and have minimum 5K searches locally every month.

    If i use this domains i will be for sure #1 for this keywords in google.
    Another reason i havent used them is because i heard you need C class IPs
    different host etc..
    IS THIS REALLY TRUE??

    One of my competitors is using 5 domains with the same phone number same host linking them with each other. He is ranked pretty good...

    Can i use my domains the same way?

    Here is an example:
    This business has 4 different sites and all of them are linked with each other. They have their info and same host I AM SURE THEY HIRED A SEO COMPANY and their ranking is pretty good..
    LINK 1
    LINK 2
    LINK 3
    LINK 4

    I'm not one of the most superstitious SEOers on here, but being that you are trying to advertise your brick and mortar business on multiple domains, I wouldn't be too bothered considering how you have EMDs. SEO hosting alleges you need different C class IPs, but they fail to realize their breakdown of IPs is wrong. It isn't AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD, it varies based on the first octet's IP number.

    Anyways back on subject, there is no GUARANTEE you will be #1 on google.

    What I personally would do is avoid linking them together, but leave the same contact details and have a different look to each site. If your plan was to have the same exact stuff on each site, you are better off just ranking your main business domain for those keywords.

    Just my humble opinion.

    If you have an online presense for a business there is nothing wrong with building a website for each of your products.

    The problem though, is that when you target a keyword, there are 9 other results on the front page.

    If you want to get more than one position on the front page it will be better if Google does not know the sites are related, so you need a different host and domain for each one. otherwise you might as well do something like generalrenovations.com/bathrooms /kitchens /cabinets, etc.

    If Google sees a relationship, they may decide not to rank your specialty page if they display general page from the same business entity. If the sites seem to be competitors, Google will want to provide the variety that gives the customer more or better options, so you increase your chance of having multiple positions in the serps if Google cannot see these sites as related.

    If you are going to host on the same server, this connection is going to be obvious. If someone searched for "bathroom renovations" you may a page about bathroom renovations, and another about general renovations. If either page ranks in the first 10 spots the second page may not be displayed.

    But if you have 4 web sites, each targeting the same LSI keywords, you might corner the entire top 3 spots for specific keywords.

    I have never pulled a trifecta off, but you could conceivably have the top 3 spots in serps and maps, and rank a few videos on the front page. You would OWN that keyword then.

    If you already have the domains, and can build quality, you should do it. When you leave this business, you will have multiple lead generating websites to sell in that market in addition to the main business if you sell.

    If i do not link them together then whats the point of using them? You mean just get a good rank for that specific keyword and put my phone number there?
    I am not. having different templates and original content for each site is of course necessary, i was wondering if there are other ways to benefit out of these domains.

    you'll get more link credit from each site if it's on another host, another registrar, another registrant, another IP range (C class), another server in a different physical location, with an older domain name...

    if they are all on the same server, same ip range (a C class is a group of 256 consecutive IP numbers) same registrant, etc. then Google gives you much less link credit

    Use different c class ips if and only if you are targeting the same LSI keywords. Else you can host them together. As far as the contact details goes, use an image.
