    So one of my sites made $94 in adsense +$24 in affiliates last month. Then all of a sudden I realized I hated the name lol its so long... So i played around with godaddy last week and found a two word domain. It's just perfect for the niche i'm in


    so here's the problem i'm facing..


    1. Should I sell the site?
    2. 301 redirect site and take all the articles and place it on new site
    3. Leave it on autopilot maybe add 4 articles a month on it.


    What should I do? Kinda stumped on this

    Autopilot, if you're making $100 a month in adsense that's like $1k a year. Why would you sell it or 301 it?

    Let your winners run--I'd autopilot, throw up a 400 word article or a video on it every week ($20/mo)...heck, I have sites that I can just let coast for weeks without losing rankings...still, you should be able to make $100/mo profit at least.

    Think of it as your 'lobster dinner' site...every month, this site allows you to eat one meal like a king.

    Then, after a year, you can sell...or not.

    Reason why is because I hated the domain name and I found a better domain name for the niche im in

    Don't try to sell it. There's not enough revenue proof to make it an easy and worthwhile sell. It's probably worth more to you than what anyone else is willing to pay.
