China on Radar

Namedrive, Last Seven Days.

China Outranks Japan. What is going on?

China has for the most part been completely off the Radar altogether.

Re: China on Radar

Been getting 300+ type in per day to the site where I point my Chinese names to.

Are you getting $'s? If so maybe time to park and see.

Re: China on Radar

I still 5:1 Japanese to Chinese....that being said just a few great names can produce more traffic than hundreds of average domains so that may also play a factor. Overall this month my traffic comes in this order:

Russian Federation
Ukraine
Belarus
United States
Japan
Korea, Republic of
Kazakstan
Moldova, Republic og
Saudi Arabia
Other

I have a CTR from China of 4.6% and that is where most of the clicks are coming from.

The Price per click for Simplified Chinese is 5 cents but not all of that is from China. Most however it seems that foreign traffic is not having a big impact.

Re: China on Radar

I see a member called DOPA.com posted yesterday at DNF, he advertises their "parking solutions for Chinese traffic". I pm'd him to ask a few questions about parking with IDNs...my last experience with them was 0 response to my application to try parking a few years ago. I will let you know what he says if he pm's back.

It was rubbish.

I went back to Namepros where I getting next to bugger all anyway.

But things do seem to be changing.

I've been using them for about half a year now, here's my thoughts on them..

Six months summary stats(including current month):



I've around 260 Chinese IDNs parked, probably of average quality - not nearly as good as most posters here.

As you can see in the screenshot, CPC(not sure what RPC stands for) has increased steadily from $0.03 from Oct 2010 to $0.06 for last month(Feb). I think this month's CPC is off being incomplete.

Funnily enough, I've found adult-related clicks to have the highest CPC, although these traffic might be coming from outside China - I've no way of knowing from dopa stats.

Traffic has dropped slightly during this period as there's been a slight net drop in parked domains.

In terms of registering with Dopa, I might have exaggerated my portfolio size in order to quality - they prefer a portfolio of 1000+ visits / day whereas I'm only getting between 20-35 ish.

And in terms of support, it's fairly good for a China-based company - fairly responsive to initial issues of parking the domains itself.

The only thing that annoys me is their website; it can be slow, especially when digging into reports.

But comparing with Namedrive, I'm getting much better earnings - no discounted China traffic for one.

All in all, Dopa is worth using.

Re: China on Radar

The GFW can't seem to make up its mind about ND pages. Let's hope they stay accessible!

FWIW, I've had better results with Bodis than Dopa.

Dopa spammed me yesterday. That's a big no-no, I will never ever work with companies that spam in the hope of getting business, its the wrong mindset. I don't care whether I own one or a hundred thousand names. Anyone that writes to me randomly as a "potential client" is a spammer in my book.

Hmmm. Ask Rick Schwartz if he thinks Cost and Revenue are the same thing.

I don't recall the last time I had to ask anyone their opinion before making a post or statement. (Unless I missed a Brit humor attempt, in which case I plead guilty.)

In this case Cost per click and Revenue per click mean the same thing to the publisher: the amount he's getting paid per click on his traffic.

Stictly speaking Cost is what the buyer pays Adwords for the traffic. Revenue is what the domainer gets. In Schwartz's opinion one is about 20 times greater than the other. The difference between cost and revenue is commission.

Having landed another whale from Japan today, perhaps I protest too much.
