    Hi guys,

    I have a Giveaway website for the Gaming platform "Steam".
    I'm giving away there small items for popular Steam games and other users giving away stuff as well.

    The site is approved in Google-Adsense since October 2016 and generating about 2$ a day in average which is not much.
    I have about 1000-2000 unique visitors per day and about 5000 registered users.

    I need your advice please. Should I drop the website, choose some other niche and try again?
    Or improve it for SEO? I have done all the onpage SEO stuff but I'm still a noob in SEO.

    For few 2 word Keywords my website is on page 1 but unranked or poorly ranked for most keywords.

    If you want a link to my website I can pm it to you.

    I'd keep it, it's approved so just keep building on the work you've done

    Do some keyword research to make sure those keywords are worth something. List your business all over. You can use yext.

    Look for other ways to monetize it. You know that visitors are gamers, you have a decent email list there, find some offers you can promote to them! There must be something out there - see what others in your niche are doing, you don't just have to rely on Adsense!

    Keep the website, mate. You can easily earn more than $2/day from your site. If you need some advice then come to PM. We can talk about it. :)

    Keep it and work on it, especially if it's Adsense approved and you're getting paid out by them.
