    I have a couple old adult blogs that a few years back received decent traffic from google but the traffic faded and after a few months I stopped posting and moved on. Has anyone had success reviving an old blog that has had poor traffic and few posts for a years or is it best just to forget about it?

    Google likes aged domain names. Your blogs have been exposed to Google, so Google knows about them. Revive them if you feel it’s worth it. I haven’t really “revived” old bogs, but what I try and do is when I register a new domain name is to setup WP on it and right a couple posts, just so it has some Goggle history. Then when I actually get around to launching the blog it has already been exposed to Google.

    I never thought to do that. Thank you for that suggestion.

    Well. You may want to get other suggestions. I am not sure if what I do is good or bad. Google and I have a love/hate relationship.

    Yes, I’m having success with this right now. I’m reviving a bunch of my properties and traffic is picking up. Like Lloyd says, Google likes aged domains, so if you got a good domain, it’s probably better to revive it than to start a new one.

    Old domains are also good to for backlinks to new domains….I wish I didn’t let some of mine expire!

    Old domains all have some value and since it costs so little to renew them I would advise doing so…you never know when you might find a use for them.

    Remember also that domain name registration is tax deductible as a business expense!

    This is one reason that I have been picking up some domains off dropped lists. (That reason and the fact that others usually think of better domain names that I do.)

    I thought I read on another board about someone who had great traffic on an adult blog he hadn’t updated in years, then once he started updating it again traffic nose dived. I know that makes no sense, but I swear that’s what I read. Ever since I read that I’ve been leery of touching my stagnant blogs that generate steady traffic.

    That would be odd but then again it’s hard to tell what sets google off at times. The stale blogs I was thinking about updating again don’t get enough traffic to worry about if it would drop anymore.
