If you’re not sure which route to take, let’s take a look at both options to see which one will work best for you.
When it comes to SEO, the most important thing to remember is that it’s not black or white. It’s in between, and you’ll need to do some testing to figure out what’s best for your website.
The goal here is to build a solid foundation, but only one that is optimized for search engines.
Let’s dive into the options below.
1. Flat site
If you’re just starting a website, then a flat site is the way to go. It’s one of the simplest options, but it also is the easiest to optimize.
This is the route we recommend for those who don’t have a lot of domain authority already in their portfolio.
With a flat site, you have one website, and it’s optimized to rank for one keyword.
This is great for those who have a new website that they want to rank for a specific keyword, but it’s important to note that the one keyword will likely be a very low competition one.
This means that if you’re not very well-ranked in Google for that keyword, then you’ll have to do a lot of work to get there.
This means that you need to have a lot of domain authority to outrank the competition.
A flat site may not be the best option if you have a site that will take time to grow, or if you have a lot of content to work with.
If you do, then you can consider going the wordpress route instead.
2. WordPress site
Now, if you do have a site that needs to rank for a keyword, then you’ll have to look at wordpress options. This is because these sites are built to make SEO easier, which means that they’re optimized to rank for more than one keyword.
WordPress sites have a lot of domain authority, which means that it’s easy to rank for multiple keywords.
For example, if you have a blog, then you’ll need to have a blog on each of your sites to rank for the same keyword.
As you build more sites, it makes sense to build them in the same way to improve the overall search experience.
You can also make your sites multi-page sites with the same author, so that you don’t have to create unique content for each website.
This will also allow you to build a lot of links and backlinks from your website.
The downside is that you’ll have a lot of maintenance to do to keep your sites up to date.
If you’re just starting a website, then you can do a lot of that in-house. This means you don’t have to worry about the technical side of things.
If you build a lot of sites in the same way, then you’ll need to do a lot of maintenance.
As you add more sites, you’ll eventually run out of maintenance, which means that you’ll start dealing with maintenance issues.
This could cost you money in Google penalties.
If you have a lot of sites, then you’ll need to have a way to manage them all.
You won’t just have one person who has access to your management panel, so that could take some time and effort to set up.
For this reason, it’s better to do this in a group of sites instead, so that you can maintain them all in-house.
At the end of the day, you’ll save yourself a lot of time and effort in the long run.
When it comes to the SEO for a wordpress site, we’d recommend using a plugin like Smash Balloon to manage all the sites in one spot.
This makes it so much quicker to update and maintain all of your sites.
It also makes it easy to implement and manage meta information, which is crucial if you want to rank for all keywords.
It also allows you to set priority rules so that you can control which page is at the top of the search results.
You can also use the sitemap plugin to monitor changes on your site to make sure that the search engines can find them.
Lastly, you can use the site map generator to generate a sitemap from your own website.
This makes it really easy to maintain your website and make it easy for search engines to crawl.
When it comes to SEO, it’s important to look at everything that’s going into your site to make sure that it’s optimized.
You want to make sure that it’s easy for all of your sites to be crawled and indexed.
This means that the site navigation, headers, and page descriptions are all important.
With the flat site option, you’ll likely have to do a lot of work to make sure that you’re ranking well for all your keywords.
This means that you want to make sure that you update all of your sites regularly.
For example, if you have a site that’s not ranking well for a keyword, then you want to make sure that you update it.
You can do this by using the sitemap plugin to update all of your sites.
This will also mean that you’re doing a lot of work for each site.
To make things more manageable, you can look at the wordpress site option if you have a lot of sites.
This will make it a lot easier to update all of your sites if you need to.
It also means that you can do a lot of the work in-house if you don’t have to worry about making sure that the site is up to date.
If you want to make sure that your site is easy to rank for multiple keywords, then you should build a few multi-domain sites, but it’s more likely that you’ll be using wordpress sites.
As you build more sites, it’s likely that you’ll want to use the same plugin to manage them all.
You can also make it a group of sites under the same admin, so that it’s easier to manage them all in one place.
You shouldn’t have to worry too much about the technical side of building your sites, so you can focus on other things that are more important.
If you want to make sure that you’re ranking well for multiple keywords, then you should look at all of your site to optimise it for the keywords.
You can use the sitemap plugin to manage the changes that are made to your site.
You should also use the site map generator to generate a sitemap as you create new sites.
If you want to make sure that you’re ranking well for all of your keywords, then you should look for opportunities to improve your site.
You can use on-page SEO, off-page SEO, and technical SEO to improve your site.
As you build more sites, you’ll have to update your on-page SEO and off-page SEO to make sure that they’ll be easier for the search engines to crawl and index.
