    Multiple Websites, Good or Bad?


    Hello, the company i work with has their main website and then decided to split their services into 2 additional websites. There is a website related to software development and related services and another website for IT related services. The main website still has content and keywords related to both topics. The intent behind the strategy was to "own the page" with multiple websites ranking. What are the pros/cons of a strategy like this?

    Twice the effort at least.
    Problem is 1 service could gain traction because its gaining from the other service.
    If they are on their own then they cant support each other and share page rank.

    As both business's are IT related there is a fit between the 2 but if they are being branded differently then I can understand why the men in suits may want each to rise and fall on its own merits.
