Domain Parking Revenue for May 2014 which was record breaking

Domain-Parking-Revenue-for-May-2014-which-was-record-breakingHello and Assalamo Alaikum,

If you remember I was hoping to have better next month in parking as mentioned in my previous month’s parking revenue post and I got it right. I added some more domains to DNS and was able to hit the $900 mark!

I can sense the drop in revenue from this month because the domains which made significant revenue last month were having temporary traffic boost. From now onwards, I have decided to share some approx stats of my parking which might be useful for you in some way…

Total visitors – 110,000+

Total clicks – 6,200+

Total parked domains – 650

Total revenue – Won’t share the exact amount but it was over $900

Top niche which made the most for me – Telecommunication

$$ made on a single day – $54

Stay tuned for my upcoming posts as there is going to be some exciting news πŸ™‚

Nice work Abdul. I have close to 500 domains parked with DNS and hardly make anything, can you give me some tips on what, if anything, I can do to increase revenue?

“I tried using β€œspecific keyword” for my domains in the past but the revenue dropped significantly.”

Just to check … I assume you still went through and categorized (and sub-categorized) the specific lander page for each domain? And, you then just made sure the “specific keyword” box was NOT checked (e.g. the ‘specific keyword limitation was NOT applied). Is that correct?

Thanks,
Steve

Hi Abdul – Thanks for your reply. Do you happen to know which grouping of your domains is performing better: a) the ones you “have manually changed the category and sub-categories” OR b) the ones which “are left with default selection by DNS.” I recall reading comments from someone who said for the first few months, they just left the “default selection by DNS” (even though MANY were categorized incorrectly, and displayed unrelated landers/pictures). After a few months, they finally got around to properly categorizing their entire portfolio (so all the landers/pictures now correctly matched the domain keyword(s)). However, over… Read more »

Many Congrats!
Interesting to note that telecommunication domains are making good returns. I think parking traffic is a good indicator on which domains to buy/park/sell.
Now, seeing the trend will you increase telecommunication domains?

Assalamo Alaikum,
Good that you are reaching one of your goal. Hope you reach all your goals you set at the beginning of this year. How do you determine whether a domain has type in traffic or not. Are there any specific tools to check it?. Thanks again

You should add the number of domains parked (and highlight it, in the case I missed it) for a better perspective of your earnings otherwise it’s useless.

Is ‘DNS’ the full name of the company? I see DNSexit.com and DNSpark.com as just two examples of companies out there. Which one do you use?

Thanks

Hi Abdul, We’ve a portfolio of few hundred domains, however we are facing some issues. We tried reading material on various sites, but more the views more the confusion, be it godaddy, sedo, afternic etc. And then eventually landed on your website, which had more insight and more importantly a real, un-hyped and neutral perspective. Excellent job! That said, well here are some of major issues we are facing – 1. Domain Appraisal: We tried evaluating are domains with various tools like estibot, valuate, sedo etc. Not only we found appraisals superficial, biggest surprise was RANGE of differ. Where some… Read more »

Hi Abdul, At the outset, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting a reply this quick, let alone quite detailed and brilliantly written. Thanks a ton. Coming quickly to what kind of domains we have: Well over 400 plus. Like I said before, none of them are single word domains which would qualify for the coveted 100K+ slot. But some of them, in all likelihood, are in the 10-50K zone. They are either hybrids or quite brand-able. For ex: a) HANDBRAG.COM: Good branding name for any handbag making comanpy. Can be a label in itself. b) 100TAKA.COM: 100taka being hallmark… Read more »

Hi Abdul, I appreciate your views and clarity be it on domain or on religious aspects. Goes onto show you’re person with clear head & clearer vision. Agreed on retaining domain portfolio, but now I am thinking if all the money we spent in buying some 600 domains had went down the drain (lol) given what appealed to us instinctively, isn’t what might necessarily appeal to someone else. And relying on your experience, am sure we did mess up somewhere in picking domains. That said will do as suggested and shall reach DNS. By the way whats your take on… Read more »

Hi Abdul, Thanks for the contact info, have noted the same. Shortly will call and discuss further. As writing such lengthy emails might eat entire space of your web wall. Jokes aside, we definitely need to revamp our portfolio. Just one more question for the day. Given most meaningful names have already been booked, and hence wont be available in primary market, do you suggest buying (investing) premium names which may have sensible ROI going ahead. Our only worry in regard to buying from secondary market was & is, their current valuation and with so many TLD coming these days,… Read more »

Well, for 110k visitors you got only $900? RPM is too low…at least RPM should be around $10

If by ‘poor performing domains’ you mean domains that attract visitors but not clicks – that’s the parking company’s problem. Our responsibility is to park domains that will attract visitors. Getting them to click depends on the parking company’s page.

OK, there may be a narrow argument that we can fine tune each domain’s parking keywords etc but with hundreds of domains parked that’s not practical
