How to make money with old sites?

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by wakeywakey, Apr 9, 2018.

    Hi Guys,
    I have a 4 year old site that is doing nothing, just some copied content with affilaite links.

    I have been told that if I added some great relevent content, I could rank quicker as I wouldn't be in the google sandbox.

    So my questions are-
    SEMrush
    1.Is this true?
    2.Would I have to change the post titles?
    3. How many words content to rank?

    @wakeywakey,

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding you.

    But Google hates copied (duplicate) content

    So if I'm understand you correctly, I don't recommend what you're trying to do

    1. Yes, it might work.
    2. Any change that catches more readers attention is what you want.
    3. I'd aim between 200 to 400 words.

    The main thing is that you put in the work, or pay someone to do it for you.

    Just commit to doing your best.

    Start writing unique articles on your site (500+ words), add pictures and videos. Social media sites and forums are also helpful for traffic generation. Duplicate content is totally useless because it will not be indexed by the search engines.

    You need to be motivated to do it. Have you tried increasing work motivation, from looking up how to online?

    It sounds like you should just get rid of it. Do you have other popular sites?

    Your website must be unique. You can not copied a website or its contents to your website.
    If it is not unique , you can not make money.

    Google never likes Copied content, so it's not advisable to use that site. If you feel to give that site a try, go ahead but delete all the copied ones and create fresh and unique content.

    By offering something that your visitors might want to buy or hire, as simple as that. If your niche is health, and more specifically, people interested in how to treat plantar fasciitis, then there you have your answer: products/services that help to relieve and treat such condition.

    How many visitors come to your website? If your website has lots of traffic. Here are next steps:
    - Writing unique and attractive articles (add more pictures, videos, comparision tables)
    - Using blog or social media to attract more traffics

    You cant get a good position in Google if the information of your site copied from somewhere, because the algorithm ignored the sites which has a lof of plagiarism.

    Google ingores the sites, which has a big amount of plagiarism. So, this is bad idea. If you want to promote your site and take a good position in Google traffic, it will be better to copyright the information.

    It's better for you to start something new and yours without copied content. Even if now you put a lot of effort, then everything can go not according to plan and it turns out that you just wasted your time.
