It’s been awhile since I last posted. I’m not into SEO any more but there’s still something left to share. And no this is not an attempt to relaunch the blog.
I own a few micro niche sites which I haven’t updated in the last couple of years. They’ve been hit by Google updates several times. They lost thousands of links because I dropped a shitload of spammed domains. Some of them are EMDs (including .orgs and .infos with dashes). Surprisingly they still generate sales. Below you’ll find a few GA organic traffic screenshots with comments.
