Changing linking strategy
To consolidate multiple blogs or not?

With and without the latest Penguin update, I thought about this for some time. I'm self thought affiliate marketer running multiple websites on multiple topics.
Some years ago, I created several blogs on different hosting plans, and used them to link back to my websites.
Content was always original and on the topic, low price, linking back to my sites. As long as I was posting new articles, Alexa rank was growing on all blogs, hitting around 700-800k the most on some. Stat program reports about 100-200 daily visits.
A schema, although I wasn't really into gaming as much as to gain some traffic and have some SEO done through linking back via selected anchor text.

Some time last year, I got tired of this as it's really too artificial. My posts went from once a week to once a month, and I totally abandoned some of those blogs.

Now I wonder about best next step strategy while using all the content:

- leave it as it is and continue with fresh content and back links?
- consolidate into fewer or even one blog only?
- consolidate content into new pages on my sites?
- any other idea?

Everything is under my control so redirects are not a problem. I'm not trying to hide anything from Google. Still I don't wont to let those articles go down the river just like that.

Thanks

I would consolidate the taxonomy and topics to ensure that each unique topic has a high quality article there. This might mean 301 redirecting forward, or backward to high quality previous articles.

Then, continue to write high quality compelling content and ensure anyone who might be interested in reading it, hears about it.

Consolidate all content on the same domain to reflect the best single piece of content for every node in the taxonomy (topics and subtopics) so that there are no duplicate pieces of content written about the same topic or sub.

I think you have to look externally first.

How much competition is there for that content? How much of a market is there?

Is there another way to monetize it other than linking back to your main site(s)?

If you are able to monetize it more effectively, would you be able to hire content producers / providers for the sites?

I think you should concentrate on the main site: focus on the content, backlink
