Q: Is it recommended to have one powerful website or a group of several cross linked domains?
A: If all of your web content are related thematically, it is better to have one powerful website with many inbound links, rather than having several weak websites. But, if you are optimizing for local sites and your content is not thematically related, then you can have a bunch of several smaller websites. However, in most cases one large strong website will beat many small weak websites.
