I am not sure if this topic forum is the right one, so please move it where it belongs if needed! I could have post it in the Google one also!

I have bought over the years 3 commercial scripts and never really done anything serious with them.

One is a commercial classifieds ads
One is a real estate script
One is a link directory (yellow pages or whatever)

Here are the 3 options I have in mind, in term of indexing/exposure, not knowing which path should I take!

Option 1

One site, one index page (with contents, reciprocal links, anything by the book) and 3 sub directories which each one with the specific script like:

mysite.com/ads/
mysite.com/yellowpages
mysite.com/realestate

Option 2

One domain for each script, each script in his own sub-directory and a straight index page (with all the tips I will grab in this forum).

One super domain (should I name it this way) that will act as a window for the 3 others domain names (with each one having his own script), a little bit like a presentation card! A index page by the book (i.e. tips from this forum)

Option 3

Option one but with x domain names pointing to the main one, whatever alias, redirect!

I am lost here! Any suggestions, advices, ideas!!?? I am super open minded!

try some mini sites first. I bet you cannot manage a big site. it is hard work!

First thanks for your post!

It happens that I could easily squeeze 20/35 hous a week to spare for as "too demanding" site!

So the question still remains..

One multi-purpose site with all the scripts
Differents scripts with his own domain

Any advice???

I will stick to many mini sites. I can play around with them. more flexible too.- you can sell one of them off later on if you can.

end of it all, you have to decide on this yrself. Both paths leads to the same destination. with just abt the same amoutn of work in all for each path..

one thing people overlook when creating big sites is the branding issue.

each small site can be its own particular brand or flavor. my blog is way more popular now that it is not part of the site it was initially on.

think of a question or idea and make a site for each.

big sites take a ton of effort and usually only get one brand
