Parking revenue steadily rising

The majority of my portfolio is Japanese IDN’s. August has already surpassed the previous best month for revenue and there is still 5 days left!

This is even more remarkable if you consider that the previous best was in a December which benefits from both cold weather (more people inside on their computers) and the seasonal shopping spike (yes it happens in Japan too).

Is anyone else seeing a steady rise in their parking revenue?

Re: Parking revenue steadily rising

My best month ever for Japanese as well....but still a long way to go to see the portfolio self sustaining. But, reminds me of Russian IDN 2 years ago now my Russian portfolio pays for its renewals. Average PPC for Japan this month was .19

Re: Parking revenue steadily rising

Compared to the same time period last year it looks like a third more: views, clicks and ppc.

Same here. Japanese views and revenues are rising, but still are low.

Re: Parking revenue steadily rising

Haven't checked ND for a few months. Today I found that quite a few of my JP domains have annual revenue above $40, while a few month ago there were hardly any at this level. The revenue increase are mainly happened recently.

Someone at Google accidentally bumped a knob on the "rip off domainers" control panel.

Re: Parking revenue steadily rising

OK I'll be the wet blanket poster. My traffic increases in Japanese look like mainly increased traffic from USA, which is not getting me excited. My per click numbers have not budged (a little help please google?) - I guess it's just me.

On the other hand, my developed sites (which all have at least some adsense) show improving numbers across the board. Of course I only have about 15 developed Japanese sites, so the sample size is too small to extrapolate and suggest broader trends. But that's the view from here.

My guess - you guys are benefitting from Google's expanding market share there. The size of the advertiser pool using adwords may be growing as Google search continues to displace Yahoo in that market.

Re: Parking revenue steadily rising

October was another record month for my Japanese portfolio, by a considerable margin. September came withing a dollar of the August record but didn't quite beat it.

Re: Parking revenue steadily rising

Traffic for Russian IDN has doubled in month of October. I mostly park with sedo, and I know that they had to upgrade their parking program to java script.

From Sedo:
"From now until October 31, 2010, we will be switching the parking program to JavaScript. This change is in line with the new standard protocol of our primary upstream advertising provider. On November 1, 2010, we will also clean our parking statistics to reflect an improved method of traffic counting."

So that may have been the reason it doubled.

This month traffic is back to normal but CPC revenue is higher, much higher.
