Total traffic a day on Namedrive Survey

This will be an anonymous survey.

I sort of realized that number of domains does not equate with traffic. We had a "how many domains have you got survey", now it's time for a "What's your traffic a day on ND" survey.

I've left out SC for now since PPC is much lower and there are too few people using it to be representative - many people still park their chinese names at sedo or namedrive.

Based on an average PPC of $0.10 (a little low), and CTR of 20%, and traffic multiplication of 10x after IE7, to reach monthly earnings of $10k, one would need about 1600 views a day.

Re: Total traffic a day on Namedrive Survey

Only IDN, or all domains?

Preferably only idns since we are now researching on idns and parked domains.

This survey is meant to inspire "competition", and also to push forward the idea of having a "balanced portfolio" which is not just dependent on keyword or language itself, but also ppc traffic.

A note, though, it is by no means, a definite determinant of portfolio value, since trademark domains can have lots of traffic. Also, usage of firefox and plugins vary tremendously across different languages (this i need not elaborate). Another variable is whether the names are indexed by google/yahoo and if any SEO is done for that name.

I had also thought of the possibility of doing a survey on actual ppc income instead, but which i feel would not be representative right now, since many languages have extremely low CTR conversion due to lack of native ads (particularly so for Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and to some extent, Russian).

Seems like the big holders need to be coaxed to vote. It's an anonymous survey anyway.

Re: Total traffic a day on Namedrive Survey

Ok, I voted. My Japanese names get amazingly little traffic so far...

Yes, as mentioned, usage of firefox and plugins vary tremendously across different languages

Shouldn't that be 1k?

Oops, never mind, I just paid attention to the 10x after ie7. Carry on

10x is just a guide, depending on firefox usage and 'propensity to type-in' native code.

Anyone hasn't voted yet? Pls do not be shy.

This would also serve as an goal setting exercise - depending on your language spread and expected traffic multiplication after IE7, you can set the traffic goals you need to meet to earn $10k per mth (gross).

E.g. If you expect your traffic to increase by a factor of 10 times, you will need 1600 hits a day to earn $10k per mth, based on a CTR of 20%, and PPC of 10 cents.

If you expect your traffic to increase by a factor of 50 times (hypothetical), e.g. Japanese, then you will need 320 hits a day to earn $10k.
