Getting to the site

How do users get to a parked domain sites? Do they mostly type the idn in the address bar directly or does it come from search engines? If i were to copy/paste one of my idns in google, i do not see the parked idn.com. So, im confused on how people get to a parked domain.

Are you setting your name servers correctly? Can you give us an example?

Google doesn't index parked pages. Well, it "accidentally" does sometimes. But yes, people are typing them in.

Re: Getting to the site

For example... 도쿄.com (tokyo).com in korean. If I were to copy/paste 도쿄 in google i don,t see 도쿄.com. Or any way to get to the site. So this is what confuses me. I have name servers set correctly.

Re: Getting to the site

For example, this month's stats for one I've mentioned earlier. Hives (蕁麻疹.com)





It says "Direct Traffic" which means someone typed it in or came right to it. It would say "Referrer" or "Search Engine" Traffic if it was coming from google or yahoo or another site.

Regged earlier this year. They are still out there for the taking, if you look hard enough. Hope this helps.

Yeah, Google makes a habit of not indexing parked domains. They sometimes get indexed but it's quickly erased. I thought you meant your address bar.

This is the big secret of domaining: direct navigation. SEOs don't get it, web designers don't get it, most of namepros don't get it and myself don't know the full magnitude of it.
