Linking Between Multiple Client Sites

I'll caution you however that you'd better have some pretty high level control over the server that the database sits on however. There is a security risk to opening up the database port to the world. I don't know how other hosts do it, but as a general rule my own servers would not allow such a setup. I block external database connections at the firewall because it's an easy security measure that thwarts a lot of attacks. The only servers where I allow an external db connection is when a server is set up to only house databases in order to offload some load to a different CPU. And even then I only allow certain IP numbers (that of the site's main server) to connect.
If you're asking the other obvious question, whether having sites owned by the same person/company on several different servers and interlinking them will help, the answer is it may help for a little bit but probably won't forever. The engines have gotten very good at looking at linking relationships and picking up on this type of thing. So it's a lot of work and a decent amount of extra expense that in the end won't be a huge advantage.

I absolutely take your point about the limited, and perhaps short term, value of building sites and linking between them in this way ... in fact I have advised my client instead to put the effort into negotiating inbound links from existing independant sites ... but they are determined to experiment with this!
