Promoting affiliates through blogs

    Hi all.

    Is it possible to make money with say 20 different blogs/niches and promoting related products for each niche?
    SEMrush
    I figure I post relevant info everyday (tougher than I thought) but to not have every post of every day filled with affiliate links.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks
    Al

    The more blogs you have, the more money you will make. But 20 blogs!? I have trouble with 3.

    Yes, you need to balance up your time.. I have pretty good results with one blog centering around few relating products. I believe quality over quantity in this case :)

    Yeah exactly. Don't spread yourself too thin.

    You wouldn't believe how often I hear about people wanting to make 10,000 websites generating $0.01/day. In reality, it's going to be extremely difficult to manage even two blogs. I have problems managing my one.

    Even if you have 20 blogs auto-posting, your space requirements are going to grow exponentially over time. Unfortunately, the idea just doesn't scale well.

    My advice to you is to do what these good people are saying and go with one blog and make it into a big thing.

    you should definitely focus on a few niches first and build those out with tons of pages and then start branching when you can, but always make sure to update your blogs as you are doing. Also make sure to submit your RSS feed..I use pingoat.com.

    Definitely it will work but it will requires you a lot of work such as keyword choosing and performance tracking.

    Many will be concerned about the time spent on producing articles but this can be easily solved if you know where to get the ideas of what to post.

    Thanks for the words of advice everybody.

    I don't have 20 blogs, I was just wondering if that's what it takes to make some serious dough in this biz, but I guess not.

    Ok, I'm going to take the few niches I'm working on and really bang out some good content and take it from there.

    Besides pingoat, what other suggestions do you guys have with spreading the word on your blog?


    Thanks again
    Al
