View Full Version : An idea I'd like to bounce of some other bloggers

I've been working on the model that the more blogs the better. But I've reached the point where I can't keep up with posts. So, I'm thinking about reducing them to feeder blogs basically and just updating them enough to keep the SE's interested.

Instead, I'll focus on one blog, updating it every day, several times a day. But I can't decide whether it should be niche or a general porn blog. If it's a niche, what niche, and would it keep me intersted in writing about one niche all the time. Or if I do a general blog, how will that fare with the SE's and sales.

Sorry about the rambling, but it's an idea I've been debating for a while

Personally, I would recommend running with a handful of great, frequently updating blogs as opposed to a dozen or more that aren't updated often and lack quality.
And yes, always go with niches that interest you personally, especially with blogs. If you don't, blogging will become a chore and with that comes a flood of low quality material.

Have you considered scheduling?
When I ran a lot of blogs I would spend the weekends writing the posts for the coming week, and just schedule them all so it's hands-free. If you don't know how to do that, contact me and I will show you how. You might also want to consider sprinkling in QUALITY sponsor feeds every few days.

As far as the topic of your blogs, I would stick to a few specific ones and perhaps one generalized one that you can filter traffic from to your niche blogs. It's always good to cater to popular niches like Teen and Hardcore, but if they interest you, you might want to consider diving into other niches such as Goth, BBW, FemDom and other alt niches.

If you're looking for top SERP rankings with your blogs, you will definitely want to focus more on the not-so-popular niche blogs. You can do very well with general niche blogs, but it will be a lot harder to get high listings obviously.

Like I said, if you plan on having the one general blog and a few niche blogs, you will definitely want to filter and send out the appropriate niche traffic to your other blogs. For example, have each category list prominant links to the appropriate niche blog:

Teen Blog Index
- Small Tits Category
- Teen Movies Category
- Goth Teen Category
- BBW Teen Category
etc

why not do both?

have 2-3 blogs that you baby and make them amazing blogs, then also have 10-20 feeder/spam blogs that exist to boost the amazing blogs rankings ;)

so maybe 2-3 (one niche and one general) blogs that are qaulity blogs - updated every day and update my soon to be feeder blogs once a week or so, maybe less depending on my time. I guess time is part of my problem. My day job is always getting in the way.

But thanks for both of the responses.

as for niches, play with it...don't settle on one niche right away, find something that you can do with ease, but also grab the surfers attention at the same time....something that you personally know and like, that way you are knowledgable and can catch the surfers attention

I update my quality blogs once a day and my feeder blogs about 2-3 times a day ;)

2 to 3 times a day? are you using feeds?

as far as niches theres several im comfortable with, just have to figure out which I can sell the best

I had 17 blogs but sold them as I didn't have the time to update them all the time. Instead I have one blog that is updated all the time and it's general porn covering all niches and fetishes. I do have one niche-specific but it's more of a personal blog and once a week or so I throw in a photo to make some sales.

I don't use feeds as they all seem to offer hardcore content.

selling a few of my blogs sounded like a good idea until I remembered I use the same domains to submit galleries - how's the general porn blog doing?

i use feeds on some of them, lots of auto posting though....if it can't be automated I don't want to have anything to do with it

Hi msacras
More is always better and doing by niche is easier. For the SEO and I think to stay focused within each blog. You don't have to go back and see what niche the last post was on inorder to keep em mixed. I tend to perfer a main niche, say Mature. Then do one blog say Fat Mature, next one Mature Blondes, next Redheads. Or even a blog per sponsor in one niche.
Have you seen our WP plugin at Zipped Blogs (http://www.zippedblogs.com) or if not using WP try the Zframes from 10 minute TGP (http://www.10minutetgp.com/index.php).
Both are fast ways to add some images into a post, you then just wrap some text around them.
Lots of times it just boils down to the interlinking so it's quaintly not quality.

I've been doing the quanity thing for a year and half now, and I'm getting an okay ammount to it, but I think I could do better and enjoy it more if I start working on a quality blog. Something, I could update everyday and would want to update it every day. I guess that's the writer in me, looking for something people would enjoy to read but at the same time make lots of sales.

That WP plugin does look intersting, I may end up using it on another blog.
