Given all the changes with Google’s algorithm (Panda and Penguin, the animals we love so affectionately) and the seemingly common AdSense account bannings, it appears the future value of niche sites has never been more questionable.
As I’ve said multiple times (more recently here), I don’t think mini niche sites are dead, but we can’t ignore the fact that it has become more difficult to succeed with them for most people.
And let’s face it – they’re not for everyone. With my renewed focus on authority sites, I’ve decided to give up on my mini niche sites aside from a small handful that still earn some money.
In other words, I’m not planning on renewing the domains – the sites will eventually die off within the next 6 months. I feel bad letting all of that work go to waste (especially the content). After all, maybe the site itself has no value, but the content should still be usable somewhere, right?
That’s what I want to address today – what to do with your niche site’s content after you’ve given up on the site.
