Parking Revenue

My Bodis revenue has tailed off significantly in the last month and a half, particularly this month.
Anyone else seeing this disturbing trend?

Re: Parking Revenue

I've heard of that domain rev can get advanced through arbitrage. Wonder whether u've given it a try or not, and how does it work?

Tailed off sounds better than total sudden and unexplained collapse which is the case at Namedrive.

I was already pissed off with unflagged deductions due to non payment by advertisers. In other words Namedrive has been guilty of simply giving my traffic away without even informing me.

Re: Parking Revenue

ParkingCrew has been great for my Japanese...but not much else.
I ended up redirecting most other languages to my sales site, rather than collect pennies.
Were definitely getting the short end of the stick.

Re: Parking Revenue

Yes, it makes sense not to give it to an advertising monopoly.

Not sure domain sales is going to have much impact, but if this goes on I would rather decide who I give the traffic to rather than simply have it stolen.

Perhaps just the best idea would be to point it at potential competitors to Google or just good causes.

Re: Parking Revenue

After several days experimenting with Bodis, I found that my Japanese names, many of which were getting $1+ clicks at ND, were all receiving $0.14

The names that performed well for me at Bodis were latin idn.

I think someone once mentioned that parking companies receive a lump sum from the upstream provider and it's up to them to apportion the clicks.

So, my Japanese names are going back to ND.

Parkingcrew requires me to submit 5 names for review before they decide whether I'm worthy, so I won't be using them.

Re: Parking Revenue

RD, I was getting about a tenth of the usual conversion too for about 3 days but now it seems all ok.

It seems that ND is the best for Russian traffic.

Re: Parking Revenue

Its not like I do dodgy shit with my domains. I just park them.

If everything is screwed up, it is because ND have screwed it up.

Did you send them an email? They claim it is their ad provider.

Irregardless, their communication on the matter has been abysmal.

Hello Rubber Duck,

We tried to contact you yesterday but our email bounced back.
Just sent you a PM regarding that issue.

Re: Parking Revenue

My earning at ParkingCrew seems to have gone down a bit as well recently. (Or, more precisely, it hasn't gone up as expected despite adding more quality names). However, the reduction in income is nothing like one tenth of what it was before.

Perhaps there has been some problems with IDNs on 1-click landers. I believe most of my income from ParkingCrew comes from 2-click landers (adsense for search network). As far as I understand, NameDrive uses only adsense for content network.

If you PM the user "ParkingCrew" here, I bet they'll sign you up right away.

I have got the message now, but fail to understand why such unilateral action has been taken against without even the courtesy of notification. Even in most despotic dictatorships they notify you of the charges against you. My crime it seems is parking with Namedrive, who use an upstream provider that Google object to.

Re: Parking Revenue

My Russian names are at Bodis, revenue is up 35% in May over the average for March and April due to 2 cent improvement in average click and 15% higher click rate.

Name Drive uses AFD and AFS network and 1-click and 2-click landers as well. We do not use the AdSense for content network since it can not be used for parked domains.

Sorry again for the hassle. As I already wrote you via PN the decision to fail list your domains was not made by NameDrive but Google. This would have happened with all parking companies using Google as their ad provider.

Not entirely convinced as CTR at Bodis better than Namedrive.

Oddly Japanese IDN seem to be less affected, than Arabic and Russian. Reason for this is unclear.

But you can tell Google that I will not be directing traffic to them if I am not getting paid for it. Their parking business is a clear competitive advantage which is now being offset by Microsoft abusing their position with OS installations. I reset my works explorer from Bing to Google this week, what a balls ache. This is clearly why they are losing market share in the US and the same will happen elsewhere.

If disgruntled IDN owners start redirecting their exploding type-in to Bing as well then life could get tough for Google. We don't want a war but we do want a fair deal, and ultimately we could go after them in the courts.
