Have a site you were going to grow, but haven't done anything with it in months — or maybe years? It can be recovered!
Charles Joyner joins us this week with a great case study on recovering a neglected site his brother purchased for $27,000 — and then it sat for many months without attention until all the revenues and traffic were gone. Charles has recovered this site and is now earning $4,000+ per month with over 60,000 pageviews monthly!
A neglected site can be a goldmine — Google likes to rank content and URLs that have history — it can be easier to rank an aged site than starting from scratch.
Learn how he did it — and what you can do to recover a neglected site you have.

Bryon Brewer: All right. Welcome everyone to the Building Online Empires podcast. Today, we are joined by Charles Joyner, who Charles is actually just a few miles away from me here outside of Dallas, Texas. And so we're gonna go through a little bit of his background and understand what he's been doing and a little bit about a growth he's taken a site, basically from scratch to almost 60,000 page views a month in a period of a year. So it'll be interesting to hear a little bit about how he's done that and what he's learned on the way. So welcome Charles.
Charles Joyner: Hello, Bryon.
Bryon Brewer: Good to see you again. So before we get into kind of what you've been working on and, and how you've had this, this success, tell us a little bit about your background and in, in how you got started into online business.
Charles Joyner: Yeah. So My background is in software and I've been doing it for years. And about 2018, my brother had bought a site and he was telling me, you know, Amazon affiliate marketing, Amazon really it's big. It's, it's huge. Right. And at the time I was working on different project I came from the video game background that I made apps and then I'm an application data and I'm focused on that. And he bought the site. I think it was generated about $800 a month. We paid about 27,000 for it. And so he got it and he tells me about it and then it just sat there. And so I just sat and sat and sat and pretty much lost all the traffic and all its revenue.
And he would tell me he needs to do something with it. And I would listen, you know but I wasn't really that interested. And then about January, February, 2020, when COVID hit it my business has already started to slow down a little bit. Right. So not gets foresee, y'all know this is some dunes coming here.
I looked at it again and I said, okay, you know what, maybe we can do that. So I would say At that point, I began to look at it and I didn't know anything about it.
