I have a website that I launched a while back that has never done well in the SERPs and since Panda and Penguin it effectively gets no traffic. The site has quite useful, original content that I wrote myself so I think that the main reason for its failure is that I used a four word spammy domain name (well it used to work!).
The site has been up there now for long enough for me to realise that it is just not going to work. I am thinking of binning it but before I do, if I changed to a more Google friendly domain name and placed the content on this is it likely to improve?
