October Parking Stats

October has already topped September with another record month in PPC revenue. Russian, Swedish, Polish, and Japanese were my top earners (in that order). Russian, as always, is my top earner with about 2/3 of all PPC earnings. Russian earnings are up about 25% over September so far. September Russian earnings were up 50% over August. Polish & Japanese saw sharp earnings increases, while Swedish earnings are flat.

Re: October Parking Stats

Well, October ended with a bang! Japanese ended up 3rd over Polish.... Russian and Swedish rule!

And Nov 1st was the probably the best single day ever. Very strange and very welcome. 30% CTR overall that day, too. Not bad.

Yes, I noticed the same, and it's still going on for me. Chinese leading the pack with 100% CTR.

I'm getting 47% overall CTR, and already earned more than half of October's revenue.

Re: October Parking Stats

Yes, October was a banner month. Not quite the best but very nearly. Russian leading the pack, followed by Farsi and Japanese (!).

Several languages hit all-time highs, in terms of clicks, like Russian, Swedish, and Portuguese.

I going to go out on a limb and say that the number of domains paying for themselves in October was up 100% from Sept (on an annualized basis). Parking revenue only.

Enjoy.

Re: October Parking Stats

I do find the traffic increase a bit weird. All visits, regardless the domain language, are originated from America and all clicks are $0.11 each.

How do you know they originate from America, unless they use the search box on your parked page? AFAIK, that's the only way ND will indicate where traffic originates from.

Re: October Parking Stats

You can click the Setting button to view traffic origin. BTW, only the North America clicks have the default value of $0.11.

Re: October Parking Stats

You can sort by region on views, clicks, and searches. It is the dropdown at the top of the list.

This is fun to watch the numbers go up as I refresh. Like the fantasies I had in 2005. Strange. I feel like it is not real. Strange. Is this really going to continue? I am glad to see that I am not the only one. Russian stats are going insane right now. Polish, French, Arabic, Greek, Spanish.... Strange.

I have a few VERY good domains in Greek. It is nice to see them viewed from Europe. Did someone put out a press release lately? Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

Maybe it's coming from ICANN in LA :-)

I was hoping there was a link. Maybe a press release? Good karma? Telepathy?

Re: October Parking Stats

Just noticed this: My Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean.... all untouched. No traffic.

Markits, your IDNs are probably so good, you are seeing all the speculator traffic. I am not. Almost nothing from N America.

However, I am getting more than the usual traffic to geo domains, so maybe that is the European speculator?

Re: October Parking Stats

OK, ND must be adjusting. They just now changed the initial PPC much lower for the clicks that happened today, effectively reducing the revenue by 66%, but the traffic still shows as North America.

Perhaps they are having problem with their GEOIP system.
