To make a full time living, Mini Sites or Big Sites?

Which one is easier between creating a lot of min sites or creating some big sites to make full time living?

I was told it is not easy to make good money as an affiliate, because it is not easy to keep creating new customer all the time.

It is good to start a business and use online marketing skill to grow your business.(creating leads) and keep your customer keeping pay you.

What do you think?

Affiliate sites are a great way of making a living online, and if you capture email addresses, you can sell over and over to the same people just as any product merchant can (without having the burden of creating new products, providing support and so forth).

I prefer creating bigger sites, not necessarily huge, but bigger sites like http://www.dogobedienceadvice.com will do better than 8 seperate 5 page websites that's for sure.

How many pages are on this site of your Mark? How much money did you spend versus one of my sites, pharmacyonline.me which was made for 200? I am going to turn this into a pharmacy search site and am wondering costs put into projejct and the return for that investment?

Mark,

Apologies for bumping this Old Gray Mare.

Ref : http://www.dogobedienceadvice.com
I see that at the bottom of the page, you are using a `domain>folder>folder>folder` naming convention to link to the other guides.
Would a "descriptivesubdomain.domain" be just as effective for SEO ?

If you talk about the guides, these are redirect links, Mark isn't doing seo with those...

Hi super,

Yes, but apparently Google is (already/intending to) treating subdomains like a main domain.
So you have to build PR-ranking separately for each subdomain.

Whereas folders of the main domain will inherit everything from the main domain.
Whether backlinks from the main domain (assume PR4) to the subdomain (PR0) will increase the PR-ranking of the subdomain I do not know.

But I would love to know which is the better strategy, subdomains for each niche/product or folders for each niche/product.
I know there's a 50 % chance of doing it right. But that means that there's also a 50% chance of doing it wrong.
And fixing it, is probably going to upset Big G.

Wish that we didn't have to {beep} Google's {beep} ?

Robert

EDIT: The funny thing is that Google themselves and About.com are using subdomains to manage their websites.
