Well think of it like this.
From the blinds you are in OOP so you shouldn't be getting involved with too many pots.
This being the case your opponent should realise and therefore respect your 3-bet more. So what does he call with?
So your decision to c-bet depends on what you think your opponents 3-bet calling range looks like.
A strong range probably means check and give up. (you 3-bet expecting him to fold.. he did not so that indicates he either has a big hand or intends to bluff to the felt on this one. You had a flop redraw .. i.e. hit an ace or k, that didnt happen either.)
A wider range allows you to c-bet.
C-betting should be done less frequently in 3bet pots if you miss because your range has already become very defined. i.e. JJ+ Ak
No A or K on the board means all 16 AK combinations missed. leaving 24 pair combinations. So QQ is ahead of your range.
If you c-bet too often you simply allow your opponent with QQ to call a 3-bet preflop, let you bet and then shove. By c-betting too often you allow an experienced opponent the chance to exploit you.
If your 3-bet range widens then your opponent can simply shove with lower hands.
So the question before c-betting a 3-bet pot, is what range of hands does my opponent call this bet with and how many of them have missed this flop?
Its opponent dependent.
