RE: Namedrive PPC

While I appreciate the fact that Namedrive has been at the forefront of monetizing IDNS...I am certainly not impressed with the average PPC, that my optimised domains earn.
Yesterday was particularly dreadful.

21 IDN clicks

1 Greek Click At 0.23 - Very Good

1 Russian Click At .07
1 Russian Click At .06
1 Russian Click At .03
9 Russian Clicks At .02
1 Russian Click At .01
3 Russian clicks At .00

1 Polish Click At .04

1 Hebrew Click At .02

1 Thai Click At .02

1 Czech Click At .00

Looking forward to some much needed competition!

Re: Namedrive PPC

That's about it, ND, a few cents per click. I know pple are quietly getting more per click for names like Arabic on Sedo, but i've not tried myself.

Re: Namedrive PPC

I've got many [ .00 ] clicks on ND...
They said it's mean that the revenue was less than 0.009 per click

For what language? Some might just be bot clicks.

Re: Namedrive PPC

I don't think the problem lies with Namedrive. The problem is that Google don't have many adverts booked in some languges. There is insufficient competition to force advertisers to bid the clicks up. This will take time. It may be that some high clicks particularly in Arabic are picking up on English Advertising.

Yes, this is what we are experiencing right now (lack of competition), but last year, when there were few to almost no local ads, PPC was in fact much higher since ND served American ads in lieu. The presense of just a few local ads will cause PPC to drop drastically when users click on native ads instead of american.

I think i remembered seeing chinese showing up with 1 click but no earnings before i swopped the url channels for japanese and latins - they show up only if you do a search all. That was before the 1st july traffic hike.

I'm still tracking a few chinese, and they average about 2 cents. So I wonder if it would be better to park at SC?

Have you made a comparison? How about showly, i remembered he got quite a few minisites?

Re: Namedrive PPC

Regarding sedo, they pay higher rates if the click originates from a "western" country for the same KW.
They may also be checking the computer's primary language nd pay accordingly.

Same here. Every month is inches up a little, my best traffic is on Russian idns, although Japanese and Thai have been increasing. Chinese have started to get small, but steady traffic as well. Japanese definately pays the best, about .15 per click average.

I did a comparison with adsense, adsense has not changed much over the past 6 months. Anyone with SEdo stats to compare with? Just wanna know if it's a adsense for domains problem or just nd problem.

Re: Namedrive PPC

Problem definitely lies with the advertisers, or lack thereof. Japanese clicks are wonderful, and clickthru rates and prices per click are great when you just use adsense.

But I'm noticing on Thai language sites, if I run adsense, people in Bangkok report seeing them run out of Thai language ads. After a few pageviews they turn into ads that don't seem to be closely related to the content, then after a while turn into English language ads.

I think it's the exact same thing RD notes for Arabic - there just are not enough advertisers paying up for good keywords yet in some languages.

I moved one site off ND and onto adsense a few days ago and now it makes as much or more in a day as it made in a month at ND. I will be moving about 25 more sites off this week.
