Any good way of monetizing symbols and punctuations?

My inverted question mark now gets about 300+ views a month, up from 100+ a year ago. CTR is like only 1-2%. Anyone has found a good way of monetizing symbols and punctuations?

Gambling, shopping?

I found out that if you don't set the subject, it will show the standard directory style parking page which does badly.

Nope, I have a similar problem with single character domains that receive a thousand + visitors a month. If you figure it out, let me know!

All Regions 2503 % 1.40 US$ 0.12
North America 784 % 2.42 US$ 0.16
Europe 510 % 1.37 US$ 0.09
Latin America 1118 % 0.63 US$ 0.01
Asia 32 - -
Other 58 % 3.45 US$ 0.13

From everywhere, but latin America has the most. PPC is highest from north america. Europe is about half.

Interesting, thanks. But isn't the inverted Q mark the Arabian Q mark??.. and, if so, I wonder why there is not more traffic from Middle Eastern countries (especially as the inv. Q mark is hardly on any other country keyboards).

Cheers,

My mistake, thanks for that. I suppose the best (and perhaps only) way of monetizing this particular symbol at the moment then is to target the word 'search' in Spanish PPC..

What do u think?

Good idea, i might point it to a custom google page. actually, i wanted to suggest this to idn, was thinking about it earlier on. If they are looking for something, it might be good to point them to a search engine.

Thinking about it, this is an awesome domain name.. The Spanish search market must be huge and to have a single-character symbol-based name that is actually a metaphor for the entire Spanish search industry is quite unheard of... :-)

All 'search' is basically a 'question', right?

There you go, Touch - start your own spanish search engine! Now, that's the kind of system I'd be interested to help with.
