Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
We are deciding whether or not to put micro sites on a few of our domains or not. We have a few points we are discussing, and i thought i would ask web master world for their opinons.
We have a website, but also own a few domains that relevant to the main site. The obvious thing to do is to point these extra domains to the IP address of the actual site.
However, we have thoguht of putting a mini site on each of these extra domains. These mini sites will be full of keywords and links that are to do with the main site. The aim is that it will be 100% search engine friendly, with pointers to the actual site.
However, we are not sure if this is legal or not? Is it classed as a SPAM page? We think it cuts close to the thin line between legal and illegal, but are not sure.
Does any one have any opinons/facts on this topic?
Any opinions/advice/help appreciated.
When i build microsites i still contain a high quality of the content so if the user lands on the microsite, they will still think it's valuable.
I don't think the search engines have any problem at all with it as long as the content on the microsite is valuable for the user.

1, Are the domains getting very good traffic from type-in traffic?
2, Or are you looking to use the micro-sites as part of a wider SEO strategy, if so, dont 4get you will need ideally links into them 1st.
just my 2pence worth
I would say it is worth the time and effort.
