Should I monetize this site or it is a waste of time? - screenshot attached

Hey Warriors,


I created a site in the iphone niche, the whole purpose of the site was to sell people the jailbreaking / unlocking software and provide support for people who don't know how to do it, I made money from the site but after 4 months Apple fixed the unlocking issue and my sales dropped to 0 so I stopped selling.

My site has PR2 and was registered in 2008, I am not getting so much traffic since I used to do PPC, I get maybe 300 unique vists a month, I stopped doing SEO long time ago but for some competitive keywords I am ranking on the 6th - 9th page ( not that great) but if I do alittle bit SEO I can get them to page one, even when the site is on that page I still see impressions..I know that the unlocking niche is dead but the jailbreaking niche is still booming...I thought about making all the information available for free as other sites and make money from adsense , not sure if this is worth it or no..not sure if someone on the forum is interested in reworking the whole site and share the revenues as I really don't feel like doing it..

Should I do it or just keep it? I don't mind paying 10$ a month as I don't like to let the domains go.. the domain is kind of unique and I like to collect domains..
I kept

    Hi,

    I think you could try adsense and see what that gets you, although I wouldn't expect much.

    Why not just put adsense on there and see if it pays for itself and then some?

    If not, put it on Flippa, somebody will grab it.

    Yea probably I will put it at Flippa but I made money from it long time ago so the stats wont be good.. I was thinking about creating a site to provide apple and iphone information but I feel it is a waste of time since I need alot of unique content, I can try to rank it now but the information on it is not valuable...

    I thought maybe someone here would work on it and make it as a blog then share whatever we get from it, not sure if someone is passionate abt that subject

    It depends on the domain name. Also, I'd recommend you not to use AdSense on any website that has illegal information/software.

      The domain is unique , btw the software is not illegal according to US laws. maybe I should just ditch it lol this domain needs someone passionate about apple and iphones I guess..

    I could hardly see the image in the post. Why are you reluctant to letting go of your domains? If you aren't making money from them, whats the point of keeping them? You're losing money each month... even though you don't mind keeping them. I think you should work on 1 site at a time, monetize it, and making it incredibly profitable.

      Yea sorry the picture seems small here but its only showing the impressions, I like to collect unique domains , its like an addiction..I know I can save money but I cant let them go.

      I am actually focusing on one Amazon reviews site, like a huge authority site with great content for the users...I am willing to spend time and money on it to make it a successful site.
