Hi i have several websites running and a few of them have a decent amount of google traffic. I'm wondering what the prevailing opinion on expanding a site vs creating a new domain is?

To be more specific if i have a website about cars and i want to branch out and have a section about tires and car insurance am i better off creating a whole new site or adding it to the domain/site that i already have about cars?

Thanks for any input its much appreciated.

    If your main site is quality, use the leverage you have built so far. That's a no brainier.

    Using the same site will allow you to benefit from domain age and preexisting links. You can always revise your site as significantly as you need, and then re-index the site with Google

    Add to the new site, especially if it is a derivative of the same niche.

  • I'd expand the site, since it is already in a closely related niche.

    The practice of building authority sites is becoming ever more popular.
    If you already have traffic and a presence on Google you need to build on this.
    The more articles you add in these new areas, the more traffic you'll pull in.

    You will find it much easier to rank for the related search terms you want to add using the site you've already built.

    I'd create new categories for each new area you move into - but keep them related to your core topic.

      It is better to use an aged websit if applicable
      (the one you already have).

    Go and built a big authority site which will help you to gets a stronger site and more authority. Authority sites are getting more and more momentum in the search engines and it will be easier for you to rank post in google if you have a big site like that!

      I agree with all the comments. Expansion of your existing site is the best way to go. Become an authority in your niche and you'll find that once your site is well established in Google all your future posts will be indexed and ranked quickly.
