    Hi all,

    What's the average size of your affiliate websites, in terms of the number of pages?

    And oh, I think we should exclude datafeed sites from the survey.

    I used to do many "one page wonders" ... then I learned .... ... about 100 pages, but usually average well over 1,000 with feeds.

    Thanks for the response.

    Well, I've always wanted to ask those who built sites (non-datafeed) with hundreds or thousands of pages just how they go about doing site maintenance.

    Like don't you need to update the products, prices, coupon codes, links and so on all the time? Or are these build-and-forget sites because the details never change over time?

    We used to develop sites with hundreds of pages, but are now concentrating on smaller sites with very focused themes, because updating big sites is becoming more and more of a chore, especially when you have some merchants breathing down your neck all the time about things not being kept timely.

    Any insights are welcome.

    Thanks again.

    Without any datafeeds, I have about 3,000 pages. Site maintenance is something that you just have to do. If you use templates and you get it right, site maintenance is pretty easy. I have about 50 different templates, so you really only have to maintain those, unless a merchant leaves and you have to change the individual pages.

    The number pages is one of the things that gets way, way too much focus in my opinion.

    Build a site that's focused with a clear strategy. The number of pages will simply be a logical extension of the site's business plan. - The Internet's Fitness Resource

    Each site I do is unique. One site has a few hundred while others have only 8 to 10 pages.

    Well I have a bunch of single sites with non links to other pages.

    and have about 3 pages with about 6 pages linked to. I probably will build a site with about 50 pages of products soon though, I'm just tired and sick of dead links. does anyone know how to get rid of dead product links, from cj, linkshare easily?
