Higher CTR at Namedrive

I had record (unadjudicated) earning yesterday. Unlike previous false dawns this was not due to traffic surges or high individual clicks but an across the board increase in click through rates. This suggests to me that something has kicked in that wasn't working before.

My CTR has surge for 1% to 15% for that 24hrs. Anyone else getting similar?

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

I was just studying the abnormally high rev-share from my ascii domains parked there. Over a dollar in some cases which has never happened before....

I have had lots of IDN clicks over a $1.00 sometime as high as $3.00, but I have never had sensible CTR before. Yesterday's is comparable to the very good CTR at SC.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

well either it's a "bug", or something positive has changed.

It would be too much to hope that non-english ad's are now being served?

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

I am seeing it as well. The majority of the clicks come in from North America, for some reason.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

How strange.

After reading this post, I went to check my Namedrive account, and noticed that I have had two clicks on two of my parked Japanese IDNs.

These are actually the first clicks I have ever had on my parked IDNs, though I dont own that many domains and wasn't really expecting to see a huge surge in traffic or clicks.

But at least these two clicks have got the ball rolling ...

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

Yes, I've seen this increase as well. Record CTR with normal levels of views. The only worry I have is it seems most of the extra clicks are from North America. I had
13 clicks on Chinese domains yesterday after previously only 1 for the entire month.

While I don't discount the fact that native speakers in North America are clicking on these domains it seems like a very sudden change. I guess we'll see what the payout is like for yesterday's surge.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

I had about a 40% to 60% increase in traffic, in the past 12 hours - but I think the numbers are still statistically too small, and it's too soon to indicate a trend.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

Another interesting note - yesterday's clicks from North America accounted for 66% of my clicks. Today the click rate still appears to be higher than normal but less than 10% of the clicks are from North America.

It will be interesting to see how this progresses through the day.

It is a time zone thing. Most US traffic comes later in the day.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

Looks like the record-breaking CTR only amounted to a $0.03 average for me - which translates into an average day earnings wise. Oh well.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

I almost have my first full 24 hour period of complete stats from NameDrive. My first day's CTR is about 30%. None of my pages are targetted yet, just generic landers.

Clicks registered at .11 cents yesterday and are now changed to .02 when I look at them today.

Well yesterday was showing at about $10 which was impressive seeing Arabic and Chinese, and also much of my Japanese are currently elsewhere! Pruned back to about $2 today though. However, CTR for today is currently 16.85 again. Just about all from the US! Actually CTR from US today is running over 30%.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

Yeah, I've got 25% North America traffic today so far.

Actually Namedrive is probably the best place to park your IDNs currently. This recent surge in traffic from North America is probably just a blip. My foreign traffic has stayed relatively constant over the last few weeks. And Namedrive seems to be the only ones working hard to improve IDN parking.

Re: Higher CTR at Namedrive

Contrary to you guys, i didn't have any North American traffic, views even dropped, but offset by CTR increment to 25% from the average 20%. Payout remains at 10$ - lower than my daily average of $11 for this mth.
