    I have an old .net website that I bought about 2 years ago. It was an expired domain, that I hoped would regain its page rank, but never did. This is the official site of a developing country, with about 60% traffic coming from 3rd world country's, and 40% coming from developed countries. I have given up hoping the page rank returns, however it does have keyword rankings and power in google and gets about 200 unique every day. I really dont know what I should do with this. As an example traffic would be typing in ( Nigerian Parliament ) or similar (not the real country).

    - Place adsene on it? (not sure about this because most visitors are from the country and they wont have money)
    - Affilate products? (I don't think there is going to be anything useful)
    - Redirect to some other site?

    I just dont know... Just looking for any idea's or suggestions.

    Thanks

    how does this old .net domain became an official (non-usa) government website? your best bet would be starting with adsense.

    It was an official website of a poor foreign government until they allowed there website to expire. I put relevant content on the site after i bought it so it still getting searches related to the old site and still has so many wiki links i didn't know how to count.

    I dont really use adsense, but i thought they had a policy about banning sites who's traffic were mostly non-english speaking and if that's true it might cause a problem because im sure 60% or so doesn't speak english or speaks it poorly.
