    I logged in one of the blogger accounts for a gmail id I own and found a blog I created 7 years before. There are only 6 posts on the blog and it is getting around 700 page views a month. What should I do from following options:

    1) Adding a custom domain on the blog, add 5-6 more posts regularly, place AdSense ads and then sell on Flippa. How much price should I expect ?

    2) Another is to keep adding content regularly and keep earning from AdSense. I am doubtful if adding new posts after 7 years will make any difference or is waste of time. ?

    I would drop a couple more posts, then I would put up AdSense and collect the free pennies. Check it 2x a year, add a new piece of content and just let it sit.

    I would keep blasting out content. If you can get 700 a month doing pretty much nothing, then you can definitely make some money. I would not sell on Flippa, unless it's after a year or so of consistent earnings. It's really hard to sell a site for any decent money without earnings.

    Is there any benefit of this being a old blog ? Also, this blog is on another gmail (not for which I have AdSense). Will I be able to integrate ads with single click there?
    Most of the traffic is from India, I guess most I can expect with 700 page views is $2-$3.

    India traffic is terrible for AdSense

    Well, thanks, logged in to my gmail to see if i had the same type of thing, and i have an old blog about series that has 1700 page views last month, mostly from france :eek::D

    Should i sign up for ad sense ? How much could i expect if i add content to (at least) maintain that level of activity ?

    $8-$10 per month I guess.

    One more thing I would like to ask here is " What about doing this on large scale" Like creating 20 such blogs with original content 10-15 articles on blogger. Can I expect same results ?

    Depends of the niche i guess, so yes and no. You need to find 20 different niches that can used this way

    No benefit of the blog being old, UNLESS it had some powerful backlinks, but there is a benefit of the content being aged.
    As to not having AdSense on this blog, if you already have legit AdSense on another account, this could cause an issue, as you aren't allowed multiple accounts, so no you wouldn't be able to simply click and install. You should be able to add this account into your AdSense(basically merge them) and have AdSense available.

    Thanks, I transferred the blog from that account to another for which I have AdSense approved. Hope this will not be any issue.
