I am now doing this aggressively and not pursuing my "one site" objective where I create branded sites etc.
I'm aware of 2 networks generating billions of $'s over a sophisticated / combined network of 50,000+ websites on different domains, owner/whois profiles etc. etc. . There must be others out there. They have overtaken branded sites and of course cannot be maintained in any degree of quality - it's just unworkable in the long run. They completely escaped Panda - in fact they improved so I'm told , and the pages are well constructed, but i take your point Swanson - is this what Google want's - websites created to avoid getting penalised.
Surely it's better to work with webmasters and brands through WMT and help them to meet the standards better. If the sites are no good , they're no good, but if they can be improved , then i recommend Googlebe a bit more straight forward in it's communication.
It'll keep everyone happy and stop this propogation of unnecessary sustainability type strategies.
