    Parking income has been erratic lately, I have yet to meet someone has been able to grow their monthly income these past few months or since summer has started.

    I have

    or, should I say, I have 'reversed' some of the damage

    I decided to ignore the factors that I couldn't control and focus on what I could have an effect on.
    I realised that one of the reasons my revenue dropped was that I stayed too long on the same 'search' pattern.

    Some time ago I had a list of 22k+ deleted domains of which I usually pick 1-5 to buy.
    When I checked for availabilities I noticed that an unreal amount of 14k(!!) were already registered!

    Again: from that list I usually find 1-5 that are ok to buy ... some people found 14k useful domains from the deleted bin.

    That's when I thought that the way I search is too crowded and I decided I should change my ways.
    That simple change resulted in around 10-15% increase in revenue since I now find domains that are not *that* crappy for parking :)

    It *could* be a coincidence though, since I have noticed said increase only the last few days. I will have to wait a bit more to be sure.

    some of my domains are hitting 1$ per click on parking crew. let's hope this means I'm stepping in the right direction :)

    well, I'm looking for domains strictly for parking so I assume they did too.

    That was a filtered list out of around 370k domains mind you = roughly 20 days of deleted domains

    I see. so... when you call domain useful for parking what dos that mean roughly to you in terms of say monhtly or yearly revenue from it? or per clcik. or however else you classify usefulness.
    any rough numbers to offer here?

    I use combinations of various metrics using excel's autofilter to get the results.
    There are way too many variables; I'm talking metrics like DA / TF etc.

    let's stick to the thread's topic though :)

    I think I made some strategic mistakes probably the biggest was focusing too much on one country.

    I have been thinning out my portfolio of 1000+ down to 700 which has been the lowest number I have owned for the last 10 years.

    Have you guys notice US election year is bad for the economy, I feel like even my Amazon affiliate sales are the lowest since I can remember.

    you are correct on that

    I have often seen better payouts from countries like Australia, Nederlands, Germany, etc. compared to US.

    I believe a parking portfolio to be successful needs diversity.. as in different traffic types (ie. backlinks, type-ins, etc.) , different countries and different niches

    I'm talking about traffic origins obviously

    when you said you focused on one country -and since we're talking about parking- I assumed you were registering domains with traffic originating from that country

    Its really funny but in July and August I have about 20% increase of revenue, because I have seasonal domains. Anyway Ive decided I will start with developing blogs and put parking aside for a while. The returns are much, much higher.

    Oh it already goes pretty well, Ive bought a Website on Flippa last month for 250 USD, did some "SEO" (bought backlinks),I rank for 10.000 keywords on ahrefs now and 30.000 monthly traffic, getting 600 organic visitors per day and website is making 40 euro+ per day with Adsense. :)
    And I got someone from India who writes for me exceptional articles for 5 bucks per piece. :)
