How many websites you owned or just one?

31 replies
Just curious,

Some IM owned just one site and concern on it whereas some have many websites.

what's your thoughts pro and con of having just one site vs having multi sites?

Do anyone having just one site yet managed to earn well?

    some do well with 1 site

    then they scale upwards to more than 1

    i think concentrate on 1 first

      Actually I rather just do one site.
      Some folks does told me better get another site so call more niches to explore another venture but well I just don't know feel doing one site is good enough just concentrate.

      Over my journey, is not easy to maintenance site. SEO, backlinks , misc factors you name it.

    Even 1 site can have multiple subdomains dedicated to separate niches.
    Even 1 niche requires a lot of SEO work, design and maintenance, and ongoing marketing, following up.
    In some cases, there is a benefit of having more than 1 website for SEO purposes.

    I have no problem with multiple sites but most people shouldn't build them simultaneously; otherwise, you'll have multiple unfinished websites. Get one done up to at least 90% and start another.

    We build multiple websites every year, however. One year, we built 100. Of course in that case, we were testing niche ides with advertising. We kept the top 20 that did the best with advertising and dropped/sold the rest. Then, after we knew that those sites would make money with advertising, alone, we concentrated one at a time, on different aspects - on page SEO for each one, one at a time, conversion optimization, one at a time, off-page SEO, one at a time.

    Every website begins with the strategy around the audience then to a relevant domain purchase.

    I have always had a knack for finding good domain names that were easy to resell that is fun for me.

    .Coms are getting harder to find and I concentrate on them primarily. Not all lead to a website but sometimes can be flipped on their own in trendy niches.

    I follow the types of starter no revenue websites on auctions that were recently sold all the time. Some people do this over and over as an income stream.

    Every site I ever created had the thought of a potential future investor in mind.

    They are indeed assets.

    There was one financial website that was sold for 6 million dollars, now that is turning your one site into a hell of a business and by the time it was sold it had several employees working on it.

    There are review websites, niche blogs, personal brand yourname.com sites, authority websites, ecom so many and we marketers wake up to new ideas almost every day.

    We just have to put our all into each site but consistent monetization will be the key to a big lump sum payday if you ever decide to sell it.

    There is no advantage maintaining 2 websites because you do get a extra flow of traffic.

    It's better to focus and build authority on one website before you decide to branch out .

    I would rather invest time and energy producing content driving traffic to 1 website. 2 websites is more work and it doesn't equate to more sales.

      I do agreed with you but come one site. Have to take take note.
      Is a site just mainly one topic? Like for an example let's say Dog training or cat related stuffs.

      So you will have two sites , one talk about dogs another about cats.

      Whereas some will make just one site so name it Pets , on this site will have categories like Cat, Dog, Fish, Rabbit etc.

      So literally is base how individual site owner want it to be.

      This is why I prefer the 2nd option , just one site with different categories.

      I feel you on that logic.

      But as someone else mentioned sometimes an authority site branches out into more sites naturally. You may start a membership, joint venture with another marketer, maybe you love fitness as much as I do and you want separate virtual real estate for something that is going to be a part of your life anyway.

      Sometimes we gain knowledge on a subject could be something we personally have experience with or someone we know like diabetes. For a marketer that could be a helpful content site and additional income.

      I have seen some sites made for a persons fav soccer star or B Ball star purely out of love and passion.

      Let's say a major event was coming like Olympics you could create a site just for that and could be new income streams even Tshirts.

      Maybe you love drones as a hobby then create a store or blog on that.

      Sometimes others would like you to build one for them.

      Lots of possibilities.

      I think you should have written: 2 websites is more work and I don't know how to make it equate to more sales.


      Because there are people who have more than one money-making site.

    I think it all depends on the targeted audience and the market. Some firms can do with one site while others may need two or more.

    I like to keep that a secret because a single number can reveal much about your business. A well co-ordinated, armada of sites can spawn multiple streams of income. The build it, set it and forget is a viable notion if done right. I knew people with 400 sites. Back then, a simple algorithm hiccup blew about ~85% of his websites.

      I feel this is why perhaps people rather have more site than one?

      is like don't throw one egg in one basket theory, as you mention the Algorithm hit , people with 400 sites get hit more than 85 percent of the sites but at least he still got some sites survive.

      If just have one site surely get stuck? Good an example recently Google updates it does affect many sites , massive drop on organic traffics whereas only minority claim their site don't get affect and surprise got spike in traffic gain.

    For the start you should have just one site to practice, concentrate and develop it as good as you can. When you will be sure in your skils and knowledge you can have more, so you will be confident in your work

    I currently owned one website. Managing website needs time and resources. If you are a beginner then I would recommend you to start with a one website and scale it up.

      Yup, even so call " automate " also need work to edit etc stuffs.

      I do see people only own one site yet managed to earn.

    Within the right niche and business model, one site can still be surprisingly fulfilling.
    As others here have said - building it (and it alone) out is also a helpful focusing mechanism for someone new to the world of online business.

    I have 2 websites. It is not about the number of websites one has but how well one utilizes or works on what one has.

    At the moment I have one site, but over the years I have had many sites.
    Maintaining one site is a lot of work and takes a lot of time.
    Though I wish that I had just focused on one site over the years
    right from the start. I think I would be seeing massive success by
    now instead of being all over the place and experimenting with different
    sites.

    I'm quite happy just having two websites. It takes a lot of time to write content and manage all the links and promotions.

    Better to be good at one or two than have many and getting nowhere.

    For a newbie or beginner 1 site is all you need.
    Once you generated a good income with it, you can think about starting another one

    I have just one site, which I'm making into an authority platform, and personally, whether or not I make sales from it is neither here nor there to me. Of course, it'll be an absolute bonus if I do eventually earn from it; but for now, I'm focusing on filling it out with good quality content and building my email list over time.

    I don't believe in putting all of my marketing efforts into only my blog because I try to follow the Pareto Principle of the 80/20 rule as I do with all the other traffic sources that I use. Using this rule means that I won't get sick of the sight of my blog and it also ensures that I'm giving priority to other tasks related to my business.

    Hope this helps!

    Unless you go into other niches, no reason to have multiple.

    I reached 50 sites in my Google Analytics. I've allowed a lot of domains to expire though.


    Right now I am focussing on 5 main sites. One is an unexpected cash cow. I did have a lot of relationship niche sites but they've pretty much died due to Covid (plus the move to Apps).
