For example, I am selling furniture, and I want to optimize for bedroom furniture and office furniture. I launch bedroomfurniture.blog and officefurniture.blog with content added weekly. I know it might not be practical as far as the time/resources needed. But, is this a safe SEO practice?
A quality blog can not only help with link building efforts, but it can also help a bunch with branding and promotion if done well.
Personal opinion now, the time it takes to write and update the content on those blogs may be put to better use by hosting a similar blog on your own ecommerce site. If the content is well written it will probably attract more links from other sites than the few links from the 2 or 3 blogs you will be able to maintain yourself.
The tipping point is something that most webmasters do not understand. It is relatively new in google algo, and needs to considered when adding links of any type.
Any new link to a page, triggers events once google finds it. The amount of links, the anchors, and the current status of page can vary the immediate results.
After that, the effect of the [link/s] on the page position with changes after multiple fetches and page cache updates.
The variables are endless, but you will see the greatest variation between new and established pages.
We can learn and learn and speculate and conclude, but its ever so hard to pinpoint a good "EURIKA!" when it comes to search engine marketing.
At any rate, keep the advice and schools of thought going. I love reading it! Thanks again.
