I've spent most of today going through my 2013 AdSense account analysing which domains have, therefore which have not, made/taken any money.
I'm not referring to the AdSense parking service, these are mainly 10-50 page specific trade keyword domain names, and what a sorry site [sic] many of them look therefore I have resolved to have a major clear-out of non-performing domains.
Quite simply I can't be a$$ed with Google hammering my trade image sites to pieces any more, on average I am 80% down on 12 months ago, that's how much the January 28th image grab has affected me, I've already completely deleted several sites that had many unique trade images and will be deleting more...Your loss G, they've gone, all you will see is a 410 page!
Is anyone else thinking of having a major early spring clean?
The next task will be to consolidate some larger stand-alone keyword domains, 150-300 page sites, into one domain, and then dispose of those names. I'm aiming to get down to about 50-60 names this year, that's from 1,000+ just only 3-4 years ago, I'm not sure whether I'll achieve it but I'll give it a go.
