How many websites do I need?

Last Update: May 16, 2018

Hello fellow WAer,

If you are just starting out as a premium with Wealthy Affiliate, or if you have been here for a while, you have probably asked yourself this question. How many websites do I need?

Once I became a premium member, I added 2 new websites right off the bat. Although having 2 websites to start is not impossible to manage, I believe that it is not ideal. Looking back, I wish I had only started with one website.

I think, especially when you are a WA newbie, it is better start out with just one website as you are learning the ropes in addition to adding pages and posts to your websites. This can be a bit daunting at times with just one site, and with 2 it can at times become down right frustrating.

By working on just one website to start, you can focus in on this niche area, and get it up, and ranking in the search engines more quickly than if you are going back and forth with two sites.

You are also less likely to give up with one site than with two to start. Remember, this is more of a marathon than a sprint, so keep your expectations realistic. In other words, don't bite off more than you can chew.

It is important though that you choose an area that you are knowledgable, and at least somewhat passionate about, so you have a deep well of information to write about.

It is also enjoyable to share knowledge with others that most are not yet aware of, and can benefit from your experience and education on the subject.

So my advice is to start with one website. Choose an area that you are passionate and know a lot about, and get it ranking and making money before you consider adding another one.

All the best, Tom

Starting with one is best, but if you can handle 2 or more more power to you.

I agree - focus on one, get it built out to where it is mostly just 'maintenance posts' and then start a second site.
