Google will penalise you for having duplicate content, if that's what you have got in mind for these other sites.
This moment in time its more beneficial to have one larger site than to have lots of smaller one's, but this can and does change with the google updates
The google adsense team will not penalise a site unless you break the terms and conditions, you can have adsense on as many sites as you so wish but just remember google will then know what sites you have got and where they are hosted etc.

I have two sites on the same general topic. It just sort of evolved that way as one site was a part of a separate project at one time. I've thought about putting them back together but have so many links to each and it would be hard to get people to change all those outside links. Plus one is more informal and it's fun to have one that way. I feel like I can just toss up any idea I get on the topic.
I don't seem to be penalized in any way for it.

I've often wondered if Google uses that to penalize you... of course if they did they'd only be hurting their own revenues. It's in Google's selfish interest for Adsense sites to be preferred, not penalized.

I'm not planning to use duplicated content, but providing free hosting and design to some people (small amount < 100 sites) and will place my adsense code on every site.
Just wondering if I'll be penalize when these people who visit different sites with my ID and click on the ads.

So basically what you are saying is you are designing small sites for 100 individual people which will be hosted on free hosting and these same people will be visiting the sites and could/will be clicking on the adsense.
IMHO you could be leaving yourself wide open for your adsense account to be closed, its one thing you having 100 sites which have the same contact details but not for 100 different contact details with the same adsense code.
I have seen sites what offer this type of service but have
The best way forward would be for you to contact google before you start to construct this network of sites and get their approval

Maybe I'll use the
method and I'll just cloak the domain name with something else.

i currently just have 1.
I want to make more websites but i can't think of any topics i would like to make the site on.

I have 4 websites. One is 1 year old, and that are making just over $3 a day. Got $98 in december.(arg..no payout..) =( The 3 others have not started yet. (Not run any ads for them)
I think i have about 30 domains. So if someone wants a .info domain, let me know! (joke..) ;)

My corporation has about 23 sites or so, ZERO are related and NONE duplicate content

Someone said Adsense doesn't allow duplicate content. How can this be? Surely you meant Google search doesn't allow duplicate content right?
Is content that may also be found elsewhere really against the Adsense TOS?

I have 2 sites with the same content. This was Google's idea. I asked for a second account but they told me to use the same one for both.

A more interesting question might be how many AdSense publisher IDs you own ;).
| 11:22 pm on Jan 6, 2005 (gmt 0)|
They penalize you in terms of search standings. I know this to be true because I have several sites with duplicate content and have seen several of them drop significantly. Only the oldest site has maintained its standing. As fas as adsense is concerned they don't penalize you at all. At least I haven't been. Knock wood.

Oh! I think I host my sites with the same people! (in Canadaland)
