Rick's Rant

Rick is making a huge thing about increased payouts at Frank's but we have had about a 75% inrease in PPC since Monday.

Since Namepros have always distinquished between Direct and Indirect Traffic, it would seem that Google have implemented such increases to all Parking Companies that differentiate their traffic.

Re: Rick's Rant

75 is impressive. I hope it stays that way.

As for Frank's service, I would think that there is a possibility that it gets smartpriced in the future.

Without a doubt it will.

I remember when yahoo opened their ad service. It was $2-5 dollar clicks. And that was back when you could throw anything on an IDN.com and get a first result in the Serps. Who own's their ad service now?

It DOES get smartpriced, and according to Frank, it goes UP when it does.

Do you have domains parked with Frank? I'm just curious if you are allowed to park IDN there and if so, what kind of difference it makes.

Cyrillic doesn't pay for crap anywhere as far as I know. I keep seeing Google telling me advertisers are paying anywhere from .50 cents to 5 dollars and then I'm only getting 2-4 cent clicks. Somewhere we're getting raped.

Re: Rick's Rant

Not yet. I haven't got one of those round tuit's yet. It's on order.

It would be interesting to fire some hi-traffic cyrillics in there and see what happens. I shall have a wee chat with him.

Re: Rick's Rant

You can check the names being transferred in here:

http://www.dailychanges.com/internet...com/2011-05-16

They are on the inbound tab and most of the first ones on the 16th are Rick's. Change the date in the address bar to see other subsequent dates. Interesting to see the names, extensions etc.

Some 'interesting' names, most kind of makes you wonder how these get the volume of "type in" numbers they spout about.

I was scratching my head as well. I just ran a few numbers in google to check. There is no way many of those are getting "direct traffic".

So on the first day Rick moves his top ten. From then on quality just get's thrown right out the window.

Re: Rick's Rant

They are being somewhat selective. For example, Gaypolarbears.com didn't make the cut.
