Maybe this question is more appropriate to stackoverflow, not sure:

What is the best practice for sharing the assemblies of a bin folder across multiple websites in IIS 7?

I've got several sites, each with slightly different HTML front ends, but all with the same middle tier logic and DB. I don't want to redploy the same dlls to each of the many site's bin folders everytime I make a change.

You could deploy your common assemblies to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
