Changes at Parking Crew?

Something happened.

Clicks dropped like a stone.

Did they change the upstream provider or something else going on?

I guess we will know tomorrow if it is good or bad.

Well, to start with you cannot be Thinking to take such a course of action.

And I would suggest you wait until Revenues are declared. More Clicks rarely equates to more Money.

Re: Changes at Parking Crew?

Their UI is not the best.

No punycode, + no way to know what was being paid to you and when unless you go digging in your paypal account.

I've tested a few Chinese domains that had lots of traffic and very little CPC at ParkingCrew and they performed better at Rook. Like .05 cpc instead of .002CPC

Re: Changes at Parking Crew?

Hi Guys,

thanks a lot for pointing this out. We are investigating this at present. We were testing some new features from our upstream feed provider which system-wide had positive effects. Let me investigate if they had issues with IDN domains.

Cheers

Re: Changes at Parking Crew?

So we seem to be narrowing in on the issue. Thanks a lot for the help Rubber Duck.

For those of you that have seen overall CTRs decline, can you either let me know your username or check if the drop only came from blocked domains (go to your folder blocked and go to daily).

Looks like this only affected russian IDN domains that are blocked by our upstream feed provider. Seems like we have had a 2nd tier buyer of that traffic that recently paused his campaign.

We are working to bring him back on board.

Cheers

the accounts that we checked were all affected by a russian advertiser pausing his campaign. These accounts had a lot of russian blocked IDN traffic and the value of that traffic went down when the advertiser paused his campaign. We are trying hard to win him back but he said he was loosing money on this campaign :-(

Re: Changes at Parking Crew?

Which is kind of odd because he was scooping some of the cheapest traffic on the Planet.

If he cannot afford those prices then his business model is completely screwed.

I entirely agree and would love to have better news for you on this end.

The problem with russian traffic is:

-if our main upstream feed provider doesn't monetize it we have to fall back to 2nd tier and direct advertisers

-we spoke to yandex numerous times and they don't show interest in domain parking or syndication so far :-(

-other tier 2 feeds have no coverage whatsoever for russia

-direct advertiser spend and coverage fluctuates widely :-(

Re: Changes at Parking Crew?

Not really complaining, just pointing out that the loss is hardly any loss at all and we are really at zero for Russia.

Arabs seem to be putting them to shame.

No worries at all. Didn't take it as a complaint but as an encouragement to work even harder on these direct advertisers :-)

I would imagine traffic is cheap in Russia because of widespread ..... how can I say this .... not "click fraud" but "people working on the net from home"
