hi guys,

We have a small site selling widgets, the main keywords in google are top ten. But it brings few conversions. BTW, we have another big site selling the same widget where our income comes from. As the small one focus on a topic, which can not become a big one in content no matter what we do next, we decided to give up the site. As the domain name has already 9 years old, we think abandon it totally is really a pity.

How about changing it into Chinese language and selling the same widgets. If we do so, can pr and history remain? Is there any other suggestion for the site change? Thank you all.

I'd suggest selling it, 9yr domains with page one results in Google are worth something to someone.

I base that suggestion on the fact you're already covering that topic with your other site, concentrate your energies on one site and good things can happen.

Changing it from English to any other language won't likely work because the site is a .com and getting primarily English traffic.

The site makes no money + page one results don't result in conversions = time for a major overhaul. Let someone else do it since you already are elsewhere.

.com sites do fine in the Chinese market. Until China opened up the .cn ccTLD .com was the main way to go.

You would probably want to host the site in China [webmasterworld.com] to improve access times for your target audience.

If you need region specific ideas our Asia and Pacific Region [webmasterworld.com] forum is a good place to look.
