I have a nice niche site that I've run for many years now. I'm starting another site as an experiment to see how it does... it is related to the other but sort of different (for example, "big" site is for professionals in the area, "small" site will be a more beginners articles on things).
I will have articles on the "big" one listed as a reference for the "small" one.... any danger to this (both linked together tightly)?
I will also be running Adsense as the primary form of advertising for both.
Any tips or info on starting off a new site is appreciated... I've run one site for a very long time, but haven't launched a new site it forever!
I think having referances to some of your articles will be ok. It is certainly better to link to one or two as opposed to posting the same article on more them one website. This can in itself lead to all sorts of duplicate content issues.
Try and keep any links you do make as one way links. For example of you link to a couple of articles on site 1 from site 2, don't link back to site 2 from site 1.
I think it is ok to link to a couple of articles, but try to keep the number of links you do make fairly small.
