My money site is 2-3 years old. On first two years I got like 200 click per day and then I bought cheap SEO service ($15). This boosted daily clicks to 400 for a month or two and then (May 2020) my daily clicks are declining every month. Now I basically get 3 click per day.

6 months ago I disavowed almost all links, built 50 long tail keyword articles and bought many expensive links $120+ but still I’m not getting any clicks.

Is there anything to do or it’s smarter to get a new domain?

u must diversify your links. i suggest maybe increase social signals to get real organic traffic for short term, then increase slowly over long term

Could just be the algorithm, keep building high quality links and traffic should improve

There could be many factors that may have led to this decline.

1. Bad links
2. Over optimization
3. Bad onpage optimization
4. Duplicate content
5 G penalty
6. etc

You will need to consult and expert for a thorough site examination.

Focus on content quality, if you get low quality links it has to be updated month on month to keep ranking stable and diversified properly. But after some time google remove those links simultaneously there will be links removed and you have to disavow links so always make sure its unique and properly diversified.
For now keep doing relevant back links hope your website will be back soon!

Its because of may update 2020 (backlink restart :D )
Google don't give a crap about content or UI, I have many websites with good content, design, speed etc etc etc and some that look like shit. For a year now I'm blasting links to crappy websites and few links to good website.
Gues what, crappy websites with link rank like crazy while good websites are basically dead

You probably nuked your site out of google man.

If you are going to buy cheap seo services, at least point them to your tier 3 links or higher, that way you will gain some benefit, but not nuke your site out of serps

It's not just about the links you buy, but also where you point your links and how you diversify your anchor text.

My best guess is that your site took downhill when you bought the 15$ SEO service and didn't diversify your anchor text.

For the 50 long-tail keywords that you published the articles for, are you ranking between 1-10 positions and not getting any clicks?

Just adding the articles and links will not help in bring more clicks. It depends on how quality they are & on page seo. You need to diversify the anchor texts. Boost your links by sending some cheap tier 2 links.
