    On Second Thought..Maybe I Should Renew
    I thought I had let all of my old domains expire, but it looks like the last old one is still good for another month or so. Just checking the domain age and noticed that it's almost 5 years old. I may want to think twice before letting this one expire.

    It's a women's shopping related blog that has been neglected for a few years now. It might be time to get the paddles out and revive it! I hate to throw away 5 years of history.

    In one of Google's patents years ago they mention age of domain as an influence in their ranking.

    Don't let it expire. Even if you don't want to do anything with it yourself you can probably make a few bucks by offering it for sale. Five years of age for a focused niche domain should have some inherent value.

    Looking at visitor stats using the statpress plugin that is installed, it look like the blog received 2510 visitors last month.

    2,510 for a site you have neglected, I reckon you have a valuable piece of real estate there.
