Many pages - many sites?
Question if many sites is as good a strategy as many pages

It seems the wisdom of the pros is that many individually SE optimized pages with clear specific narrow topics on each page is a good way to generate SE traffic.
Better to have 2000 pages each getting a few vissits per day, than 5 pages each getting 100 vissits per day.
This makes sense.

Does this also apply to many stand alone sites?

I find that any site I set up will within 2-3 months mostly get 5-10-20 vissits per day by just beeing linked to by one index page and by beeing just submitted to the major SE.

If I set up ONE good football site on www.mynewfootballsite.com I might work that over time up to a few houndred or thousands of vissits per day with much effort.

If I set up 3 000 stand alone sites footballplayer1.com, footballplayer2.com etc. for every major football player on the planet and get 5-10 vissts per day per site I am soon pushing 15 000 - 30 000 vissits per day, way more than I can expect from just one good or even great site.

Is this reasoning basically correct?
Or what am I missing here?

- Will the cost be too high? Domains and hosting.
- Will the administration break me? :)
- Will it be doable to submitt 3000 sites to the SE?
- Will it be doable to link up to 3000 sites?
- Will there be some kind of punishment?
- The 5-10-20 vissits I am getting per day, perhaps they are all actually just worthless so there is actually no value here.

Thoughts appreciated.

As long as there is some unifying theme, leave it on on site. I wouldn't spend all the extra cash on domains. What you DON'T want is a "dump-all" site with topics ranging from kitty litter to monster trucks. There wouldn't be any punishment in having so many sites (maybe a crosslinking issue?), but what a hassle it could be!
