Namedrive Revenue

Just wanted to give people a little news about some of my Russian domains at Namedrive. I know we're all not very happy about the low PPC our IDNs are currently earning, but there is good news and hopefully a sign for the future. This months I've gotten the following click on several of my domains:

$0.98 click on valves.com
$0.69 click on nyu.com (short for nude I think but could also be 'new' as in 'new york')
$0.65 click on finland.com
$0.79 average on 2 clicks for freeporn.com (go figure)

There aren't many of these clicks but I think we can all see the potential. Sure beats those $0.03 clicks (though I still get plenty of those).

Re: Namedrive Revenue

How long have you been using NameDrive?

I am asking this because ND is well know for giving very high PPC earning when you start using them and then after some time the PPC misteriosly go down to the .01 and .03 maximum.

I have been using SEDO for years with the usual .03 clicks, and have also started using ND now. Let's see if the rumours are true and our PPC doen't go down. Hope not.

Re: Namedrive Revenue

Jose read this (at the bottom of the Namedrive page):

Please note: The earnings on each click made on your domains are shown as a generic per-region value for the first 48 hours. Once we receive the exact earnings data from our advertising partner, the generic stats are updated to show the real click value. The last update date is shown in gray in your control panel. This process ensures that we can display the exact earnings made on your domains.

Re: Namedrive Revenue

I may be imagining things, but I'd swear a lot of the cyrillic keywords I put in have been removed. I also note that the ones left display as ???? which may indicate that the keyword field cannot handle UTF-8 encoding.

Looks like English keywords in there would be better for now.

Re: Namedrive Revenue

Jose - I've been using Namedrive for over a month now. Revenue for IDNs is largely dependent on where the click comes from. If a person from Russia clicks on an auto dealership ad based in the USA, you'd likely see a $0.01 revenue as they would be unlikely to purchase a car from this dealer. Native ads will hopefully improve that. And native language ads will hopefully improve CTR.

Glownames - the domain in question is ню.com.

Re: Namedrive Revenue

Try this: go to owd get a template, copy paste domain related content from wikipedia and use adsense. I've done that sucessfully with 2 domains.

Re: Namedrive Revenue

I'm also in the same situation as lunn: parked my chinese IDNs in Namedrive (2 days ago) and still no impressions. Is there anything wrong there?
