    Okay, guys, you helped me so much last time and now I have one more question for you :)

    So the thing is I have a website almost 1 year old, intended for Russian-speaking community, not a popular one, on average it has only 10-20 organic searches per day. I actually stopped writing articles for it 5-6 months ago since I got very bored and thought that it's just a waste of time. But now my hosting and domain are almost expired(only 1 month left or so) and you know, I have that feeling of bonding with it since I spent some time on researching, writing articles etc, so now I have a dilemma and do not know what to do next.
    So guys, what you think I should do with my website: renew host & domain, start posting articles and pray for the best or forget about it, since it's just a waste of time.

    Make some serious keyword research and write them down. Write articles about these and get them ranked high so you get more traffic (have you done any backlinking to your site?) When you say community, do you mean forum? You have an aged domain now, it will be easier to rank it. Keep it and change your approach a bit.

    I have a feeling you have written articles without keyword research?

    I did some keyword research back then but I was aiming for a very specific (unpopular) niche. That was my first attempt a blogging/writing and I guess that my strategy wasn't very correct :)

    So the niche/related keywords has low search volume? Is your domain niche related or generic name? Can you maybe change niche a bit to something more popular and try to target higher searched keywords?

    Either way, you have an aged domain - If you want to give IM (or well, SEO) another shot, then I would definitely keep it. It's not expensive to renew it for another year and slap it on some $5/year hosting if your budget is low.

    Also, have you done any backlinking to the page? Are you ranking high with the current articles you have published?

    Whether you should keep it or not, I think it depends on the value of what you're holding. How many articles do you have on the site? What's the age of the domain? How popular and profitable is your niche? They are somethings that loose value if you hold on to them and they're other things that appreciate over time.

    The time you invested in researching and writing the articles is enough sentiment to renew your domain and hosting though.

    There are 10-11 articles I think, the age of domain - 11 months, the niche is about remote jobs. The truth is that even if I invest more time and money on this website I don't think that it will be profitable since it's in Russian.

    True, more time and money might still not translate to success. The thing is, you can renew you domain and hosting for as cheap as $10 to $15 if you search for coupons and deals etc. That means minimal investment and you get to keep your site.

    Leaving it or flipping it will not be profitable.

    I'd advise you renew. You never what opportunity could present itself soon.

    It's not. u need to have like 50-70% more traffic than EU/NA area..to earn same amount.
    If u only have 20ppl daily,drop it(my opinion) and forward them to a new website with more interested stuff. if u already spend time making articles(which i know is not easy job)do it for at least 3$ cpm..if u don't care much about money then continue ....some day u will be proud...when u have like 1000 daily visitors.
