Should I concentrate on my 1st site or start my second one?

Hi,
I need some advice on how best to use my time. I have 1 site up so far, do I need to totally concentrate on backlinks for this site? or should I just do some initial backlinks, put another site up do the same thing, and so on until I have my 5 sites up, then do comprehensive backlinks? I only have approximately 2 hrs a day to work on these sites at this time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Brian

personally, I recommend sticking with your first site until you start seeing good conversions. then, rather than pocketing the money, spend that money on outsourcing to build your other sites faster.

the first couple of sites, you will make a lot of mistakes. that first one should be a learning experience. take your time. otherwise, you will be making the same mistakes on all of your sites. once you start seeing traffic, you will have to test and tweek your text, page layouts, image placements, and other factors until you find what converts best for you. once you have all of that set with the first site, later sites will just be a matter of repeating the process.

your welcome. once you get the first few going, you should be making enough to start outsourcing a lot of the work. this will speed up the process. I recommend reinvesting everything that you can back into the business. Set yourself an income goal that you want to reach, perhaps what it will take to quit your job. Keep reinvesting 100% of what you make until you double that goal. Then, you keep 50% and reinvest 50% of everything you make. by then, you can quit the job, and be making enough to pay your bills and reinvest in your business.

Sounds like a great plan to me! I'm hoping to eventually be able to do this full time. I know it takes time to do backlinks and get traffic, but, I know I will get there.

Hi, It would be better to focus on the first site before jumping on to the next site. I said this because just like what James, the first one should be a learning experience. The point is we don't want to make the same mistakes on our second site.
