    Well Yeah here's a thing last year when i stepped into Online Money making industry i decided to create a website of my own from scratch and learnt some online HTML and created a website the website is fairly very basic i mean it's more about Yahoo Games Backdoor and yahoo Status i created everything from scratch with CS4 but i do not see any point of this website i had placed some google ads which makes me like 0.01 cent lol yeah you heard it right even if i get click they make me 0.01 but some how i managed to make $60+ in last 8 months from adsense (Big thanks to my Friends for this lol :D ).

    So its Hosting and domain will be expiring soon so my question is Shall i Shutdown this website coz if i do i will lose my $60+ From adsense but on the other hand i want to purchase a new domain for my new project which can help me make $20/Day.

    So the Question is SHALL i Sell my Website? Shut it Down ? Or keep playing with it untill it makes me $100 and then sell it or w.e?

    Shut it down if its making that much. As fas as I know you keep the $60 in your adsense account... I don't see why they'd take it away.

    Do not shut down your websites, you can manage to make some new things in there and you get more traffic and more money =) I would newer shut down a website, i would only make there something new!

    Do not shut it down, it is going to be useful in many ways down the road.

    They pay you for the ads getting clicked not the ads being up. Taking it down won't affect what's already in your account.

    The solution for this would be to set up another website to generate good income. You should focus on marketing rather than setting up from scratch. You can easily use a CMS to setup website fast.

    Another option, if you havent got any plans for the website,instead of shutting it down, is Adsense for domains...just my 2cents...;)

    if your website makes more than the cost of your hosting and domain leave it up until it isnt any longer, simple as that

    Why would you shut it down instead of ranking kw's and getting traffic?
    If the domain is not kw-rich than just ignore it, and focus on twitter traffic (many followeres, autoblog posting every 3-4 hours). Than the domain isn't important since all twttter users see is bil.ly (or whatever).

    What is your site's Google Page Rank? If your site has been around for over a year, it's probably not 0 and you could probably get some money by selling it.

    No page rank is something different, it doesn't mean what page it's on, read up on PR a bit you'll understand.

    Yeah that's how pretty much everyone thought. It's about targeting good keywords that are searched for a lot, optimizing your website for them, building backlinks, all that that.
