    Hi guys, my EMD expires today, but im not sure if i should bother renewing it because it's not earning much. The reason its not earning much is because I haven't been blasting it with backlinks although it has 2 unique articles. I started of with a bang and blasted the domain a number of times several months ago and it is even on page #1 of google. The exact searches are 5,400 and CPC is 0.37. I have other EMD's that are due to expire too. What do you think? Am I a quitter!? lol

    Don't give up! Add some more articles and do some backlinking and you should start seeing money coming in!

    If its making you more per year than the domain reg and hosting, then you should keep it. Same with the others. Maybe spend a day to work on each of them too

    If you have a bunch of them, I'll buy them. I don't want to waste time with just buying a 2 or 3.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I guess if I look at it as making more than the actual cost of the domain cost itself, then it does make sense to keep it. However, I've neglected it and others because i've been overwhelmed with too many EMD sites to maintain. So I'd have to pay for article writing and backlinking services which start to add up, and push my breaking-even threshold further away. :/

    what is your rank on page 1? why not make more articles, or do anything? it does sound a bit lazy, to be honest... at least over the period of a year (i don't know how many sites total you have of course).

    if you think it *could* earn, put some more effort into it!

    They all vary, but the one I'm on about isn't making anything because I am have done any backlinking.

    it's at position #7 (remember I've done no backlinking work for it (well not in the last 6 months at least). I have about 100 sites, which in reality was too much for me to maintain, so most of the sites got no attention.

    $15 would have been acceptable, but the domain has expired now! :(

    The domain can still be renewed after it has expired,it's only been a day.
