    I need to renew the domains of 2 of my Adsense sites -Xfactor style, different look-, but they are performing quite poorly:

    Daily Pageview 67
    Daily Ads Revenue $0.28

    Do I renew them or do I let them die?

    What are you suggestions, please?

    Thank you

    Dude, build traffic, do some fast and simple SEO.. I would never drop a site if it doesnt make money. If it makes a little money now, perhaps it can make a lot if you put some work in it.

    .28 x 365 = $102.20.

    Thats over 100 bucks a year which will cover the domain renewals.

    U need to work out if you can build on this and increase your earnings?

    what xxblackxx said.. your total investment is $10 plus sharing a little bandwidth from a host you already have. IMO, keep it. not worth dropping. it has a potential that you can easily capitalize on.

    I personally do not drop any domains or sites i build (unless its not breaking even). Even if its earning $1 more than the site costs to run/operate, I'll hold on to it with the option for future expansion.

    You dont go to one interview and wait for a response. You schedule as many interviews as possible and accept the best offer.

    Keep your options open.

    I agree with the above. Also, keep in mind that you are allowing your domain to age which to us that email market, is worth money.

    I have about 50 .co domain names. Really good names. I'll renew then as long as 1)They pay for themselves or 2)Still have value come renewal time.

    I'm not sure how excited folks would be to get your domain (#2), but it sounds like you have #1 taken care of.

    Ask yourself how much work do I really do on these sites? If its very little and you still make more then the renew cost then yes.. renew it. I just renewed 3 or 4 sites that I haven't touched in over a year but they all make me more then they cost so profit is profit!

    You can make thousands and thousands of dollars with sites that make $0.03 per day if you get a lot of them. Most of the "big guys" do this.

    Getting any clicks from AdSense means you're ahead of alot of other people. I'd forsure keep it around and make it a side project. It's a free $100 a year + you can only optimize it more!​
