Like many of you I have a bunch of domains that I pretty much do nothing with... kind of orphan sites actually. I got this email yesterday from Godaddy: Dear BTB, It is time once again to begin our harassment campaign to get you to renew your domain bananapeels.com as it is set to expire 4 months from now. Of course as we send out emails to get you to renew that domain over the next 4 months, we will be upselling you worse than a door to door Fuller Brush salesman with halitosis. Please log into your Godaddy account and renew the domain so we can attempt to upsell you there as well. Thank you and have a great Godaddy day! I have not done anything with this domain since I first set it up... there are about 40 or so articles on it and it was backlinked but never monetized because I didn't see any rankings for the first 6 weeks or so and figured I had a dog for a site. This was a site fashioned after John XFactor but a tad larger as I could never pt up a 6 page MFA site. Since the kind folks @Godaddy reminded me that I have this domain I figured I would check it for rankings before ignoring the next 63 emails from them. Lo and behold it is sitting at #2 for the main KW out of 1.12 million results. Who knows how long it has been sitting there... what a waste of rankings. I monetized it yesterday and it generated 31.45 for me from CJ. What do you think I had my assistant do with all my sites today? That's right, take my excel sheet of sites with KWs and see where they were ranked and make sure they were monetized. Moral of the story is to check your sites' rankings, monetize them even if they do not initially rank and remember that just because you are not ranking today from the work you are doing, you very well may rank months from now for that work.
