When I announced the “official” launch of MegaSites.com yesterday (the actual launch took place in 2013 but wasn’t public, I basically limited myself to a few pilot projects to test the concept), I made it clear that developing small websites is *not* a viable long-term business model in 2014 and beyond. As some of you who have been around for a while know, I’ve been repeating this on DomainingTips obsessively for several years.

Why most people think backing up their data is something you don’t have to take seriously is beyond me. Today, I want to let you guys know what I do. Some of you might consider it excessive, maybe it is but I love redundancy.

Several domainers who wanted to develop some of their domains and generate organic traffic emailed me up until this point and most of them had two things in common: their niches were not overly competitive and they owned the exact match domain.

As promised in December when I published my Banners.biz/Logos.biz/Themes.biz case study, I’m keeping you guys updated. My quest? Turning great domains into businesses and today marks the launch of my newest project, Articles.biz (articles written by US writers at 2 cents/word).

I hate to say I told you so… but I told you so (and on more than one occasion)! Google’s recent “content farms suck” algo change makes one thing perfectly clear: they hate sites which don’t add value to the Internet and if you were in denial up until this point, it’s time to wake up and smell the roses.

I’ve made it clear that building 5 to 10-page minisites is NOT a viable long-term business model yesterday and I’m sure that most people who own hundreds or thousands of domanis are asking themselves: is mass development in general a viable business model? Let’s find out!
