Bodis landers VS BIN landers

Catch.Club Catch.Club
Hello,

Is there anyone who made a test using bodis as a lander ?

I now use dan landers and also list my domains on sedo and afternic.
I tested bodis during few hours and see that I have significant revenues using them, so i'm thinking of using them for my landers yearly instead of dan.

Is there somebody who tested them for selling domains, there is only a link at the top of the page, it's ads focused and not sale, but maybe the difference between them and dan landers for making domains sales is not so high.

If a buyer is genuinely interested in buying a domain and the Lander shows a blank page, they will investigate further or just type the name on GoDaddy or their registrar which most likely will be part of GD or Sedo premium network. Simple.
I dont see any big issue here.
Domainers must be confident and relaxed.

Good point. A blank page isn't going to stop a party very interested in buying a domain. It may be more detrimental if someone only is casually tapping in the name (let'say out of curiosity).

You are describing a buyer that is hung up on one specific name. Many buyers when they have an idea, they go to their browser and start looking for names that might work for it, blank landers will be ignored, they will just keep on trying. Obviously some go to godaddy to search, but many use their browser address bar.

Blank landers should never be acceptable, it is bad business and all the relaxation in the world won't change that.

Thanks for checking on your computer system. Maybe there a difference with Ublock origin and Ublock? Or perhaps the settings being used after being installed?

Ublock and unblock origin are synonyms:

uBlock Origin (or uBlock) is not an ad blocker; it's a general-purpose blocker. uBlock Origin blocks ads through its support of the Adblock Plus filter syntax. uBlock Origin extends the syntax and is designed to work with custom rules and filters. Furthermore, advanced mode allows uBlock Origin to work in default-deny mode, which mode will cause all 3rd-party network requests to be blocked by default, unless allowed by the user.

Source: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock

It appears that in most enduser configurations, which is also confirmed by members in main bodis thread, "URL" forsale setup (and only this setup) works for forwarding visitors with ublock. And, there is at least one exception - @AEProgram ...

In any case, there is a phenomenon of banner blindness:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banner_blindness

This thing alone is a good reason not to park routine forsale domains (with a forsale link or banner). So, if the domain earns enough with parking - let it be parked, but, if the primary purpose is domain sale - and there are no noticeable parking $$$ - then it makes no sense to park it @ bodis or anywhere else. Imho...

If I were interested in traffic revenue, my strategy would be the following:

1. choose all the names that you don't think would get you in TM trouble if the ads the parking company placed looked like infringement. Especially, exclude the high value/high price names where many companies might think UDRP might be cheaper than buying the name.

2. Put them on parking (or rotator) for 1-2 months.

3. check the results and separate the best parking performers. Probably, top 10-20% of your names. One criteria could be "if the annual expected revenue is above the renewal cost by % or more". So for this group, basically you don't care as much if it sells or not. It works like your dividend stocks. And, of course, some of those will still sell via AN/Sedo as an extra bonus

4. For the rest, use for sale landers at Dan, Afternic, Sedo etc.

1-2 months is not long enough, some names earn revenue within 6 months even within a year.
The basic problem is 99% of domainers are really impatient and don't understand how domain investing works. They blame parking or sales landers. The actual problem is always the lack of quality names. And waiting is the key.

A blank lander is never good regardless how much you twist that blank pages won't matter.

This is exactly what I do. I park everything at Bodis for a trial - if it generates revenue it stays parked, else it gets moved to a domain.io lander. If a domain makes more than its reg fee I will leave it parked forever.

If you're selling any .app domains I would put them on Bodis at least (or domain.io) so that you don't lose the HTTPS traffic (.app domains don't work at all without HTTPS). You can generate your own SSLs for free of course, but I would rather let someone else handle that.

And while this is most important for .app domains, I feel this way about all TLDs. Who is browsing with HTTP only in 2022? If you don't have SSL enabled landers you're leaving money on the table, in my opinion.
