    Do people purchase web sites that have little income.

    I have plumbersdiary.com and am not sure what to do with it after running it for nearly ten years. Doesn't earn much.
    other addresses link to it like plumbok.com

    Dublinnights.com is going to take up more of my time taking photographs so so one will have to go Which one that is the question? any comments welcome

    Never even had time to develope wifes idea for calender sites hunkytradesmen hunkybuilders
    perhaps of interest to lady photographer?

    I am only recently taking interest in income from my web activities

    any comments appreciated.

    Yes if they think the domain itself is worth having, and also they'll buy sites just for its Google PageRank.

    I had a quick look at your sites, the Dublin Nights one has a lot more potential for income than the plumbing one, you should be using affiliate programmes to sell flights to and hotel stays in Dublin. If you aren't earning much from it you need to improve your SEO skills (add more detailed and extensive text content to the site) and improve your AdSense add placement on the site - see heat maps of sites to know where to put them.

    However, if you don't want to develop I expect someone would offer you a modest sum for the site but that would not be as beneficial as developing IMO.

    Spot on

    I probably have to concentrate on and do one thing well rather many things not so well.

    First I will check out the terms SEO and IMO
    and do exactly as you suggest.

    I enjoy photography more than writing.

    I probably should dispose of surplus distracting projects
    as a first step. Where is the best place to offer domains and started projects for sale.

    Much appreciated regards Plumber

    There are numerous domain name marketplaces and domain name forums where you can sell domains, see the site in my sig for additional links.

    SitePoint.com/forums is a good site for selling developed sites.

    I like it, the original blogger, like the rat...has archive from 2001 and more than 50 links to so should have some traffic. Adsence needs sorting though, you can put a lot more on there, integrate it better and it should do better...

    Thanks for the history

    Some nice pet pics that I have not seen for a long time.
    I early on decided that pet pics would bring visitors
    and routinely photographed client pets.

    What do you mean by 50 links You mean 50 links to my site from other places? How do you get such valuable info ?

    I will study adsence as suggested

    Thanks for the info
