I have several sites, with content going back as far as 2001.
Let's call them bluewidgetsforyou, redwidgetsforyou, greenwidgetsforyou.
The widgets in question are all related, but not the same (they really aren't), so the separate domain strategy was always warranted.
Over the years, these sites attracted 100s of thousands of visitors, some of them even monthly. After Panda, and much neglect on my part, it' more like just 100s.
I find myself in need of reviving this income stream, so I am trying to figure out what to do.
I own a domain that is simply widgetsforyou, which I could start afresh, from scratch, with new content, and try to "break back into the widget business".
But I am wondering whether this is a wise move... should I continue with my older, proven (until a few years ago) "network" strategy?
After all, the old domains still have links pointing to them (some probably from bad links), they have content, and, AFAIK, the "age" of a site/domain is still meaningful when GOOG ranks you.
I am curious, what do you guys/gals think?
