I have a website that has been around since 2003. Over time I've developed it into a portal with different sections which includes a forum, games, tech blog, directory and a few more sections. The site overall does OK with organic traffic but it has never taken off. Today, after many years of doing business online I recognize the importance of niche specific sites for useability and for marketing purposes.
I am considering launching a website for each of the subdomains. There is highly quality content on each subdomain and I believe there is a better chance of success if each subdomain were its own website.
I am hesitant because it is a big move and I also learned to not change something if it's working. The problem is that it's staggering and far from being successful. More than anything, I guess I am scared to make the move. I have made my fair share of costly mistakes and I don't want to make another one, but on the other hand, the move may be successful, lol. Decision, decisions...
I'd appreciate your opinion. Let me know what you think.
