In a scenario wherein I have many country sites and each site having a lot of content in common, I could create a master website and clone it across country sites. We know that cloning will establish connection between items from Master site and the cloned site. The question i have is will cloning create additional item records in Link Database when compared to creating country sites through 'copy' operation from Master Site?
The reason for asking this is - Link table contains relationships between items, such as which item 'is referred to' or 'referred by another' item and it can go across databases. Cloning maintains inheritance between items, whereas copy doesn't. That being the case Would Site cloning put more item entries into Links Table when compared to Site Copy from Master Site ?
If we are talking of 100's of country sites created through cloning, will it cause significant size growth in the Links Table?
