I made a price comparison engine about 3-4 years ago in asp.net mvc. Kept making changes now and then. Added a "news" and "apps" section where daily tech news and app updates are posted. At once there were two separate websites, one was for desktop and one was for mobile (http://m.mysite.com). Later I upgraded everything to MVC5 with bootstrap. So for last 8-10 months its just one website. At once I also added a wardrobe category, but later removed it. Basically tried a few things before reaching a stage to write this post.
Current status is that I add tech news and app updates on a regular basis, and add products now and then. But nothing has worked. Even the domain name choice wasn't great which I realized a year later when I discovered some big portal contained my name. That is, when some starts to type my website name, the bigger portal name comes (mine is pricepan and the other is pricepanda).
And finally, I am thinking to close my developed website in favor of wordpress website. A fresh domain, a fresh site with SEO baked right in.
But, before taking the final call, I wanted to ask you if there are any merits of sticking around with my website, or same domain with wordpress installation. To me, it seems a three old baggage which google won't consider much now even with wordpress and better SEO. Just let me know your thoughts.
