I have a simple web site I designed for one of my names -- AltEnergyToday.com. It uses a RSS parser to display feeds from various news sites and blogs, relevant to Alternative Energy. I've had it up for a few weeks and it's getting around 20-100 hits a day generating and generating about a buck a day in Adsense revenue. I've seen comments from visitors who really like ti so I'm hoping the traffic will increase as time goes on.
Here's my question: I have three other similar sounding names I just purchased: AltEnergyNow.com, AltEnergyDaily.com and AltEnergyReport.com. I'm wondering which of the two following options I should choose to do with them:
1. Keep these other names parked, and linked to the developed page.
2. Create three new sites with the three new names, whose pages are identical to the developed site.
If I choose option #2, will the search engines balk if they recognize the pages to be about the same. (I could make some changes to make them different).
Would option #2 increase my revenue more than parking the three?
By the way, any suggestions on how to make my developed site more popular or profitable?
For option 2, it is likely that the search engines will <i>eventually</i> tag your sites as duplicate content. But since the content changes frequently on the sites it might take a while for this to happen. Even on sites that I pull in articles that are duplicates I can usually stay in Google for a long time.
Have you thought about paying perhaps $35-$50 per site to have "original" articles created? You can get people on elance to write basic keyword rich articles for about $5-$10 each on various topics. You could add a few original articles to your sites in addition to the RSS feeds and do quite well in the search engines.
