    I own around 40 good dot.com names that I purchased many years ago and never developed sites but had parked on Sedo for a while and I made very little. I would like to build sites on them but can't affford the cost, websites,SEO,content,ect. I came here for advice and I think the names are really good. Any advice is welcomed. I own generic automotive names, mortgage names, banking names, lending, music,ect.

    I think a lot of parked websites without any real content to attract.Few really click advertising. I think CPM ads Perhaps more equitable.
    I think bodis has good low Starting pay,But it too little per click advertising revenue.

    @gbrownre Good domains for parking should be domains with traffic, its irrelevant if they are generic domains or keyword domains. You can start by trying out other parking companies like domain sponsor (US traffic), Voodoo and Parkingcrew

    Such domains no longer exist. At least the very good ones that can make money by parking. They would have been developed into proper websites if they had even some potential.

    Unless you own a bunch of very good type-in domains, it is a fact that traffic will decline on a parked domain. Parking is not a very sustainable biz unless you are always constantly searching and acquiring new domains for parking to try to top-up the traffic, simply because traffic usually declines on most parked domains over time. And not everyone owns good quality domains that can perform well in parking....

    Search engines also do not like parked domains, and neither do people surfing the net.

    Do both...park them while trying to sell. Domains sell very slowly so it is likely you would have your domains for a year or more. May as well collect what you can from parking during that time.

    u can also try a place like redirect.com for direct ads etc.. so no need to click on ads.. for average crappy for parkign doamisn most have, this is as good as it gets for parkign revenue.. there you may get 1cent per day per domain if your lucky.
    over year, at least that ads up to half regfee.

    if your real lucky, and have half decent doamins maybe you get 2 cents per day per domain.. in which case you regfeee is all paid

    of course there you cannot show forasle banner so its tradeoff. and you rely for sales on whjois and auction sites only.

    otherwise, just park them for regular clicks with good banner on top.. I found best banner is domain name sales.

    I would advise against parking with sedo or flippa or other places where a simle inquiry by buyer who clicks on banner is suddenly turned into opening account registrtions etc. not to mention commissions too.

    hope this helps.

    well parking got so bad these days for most that 10 cents a day low as may seem is great number.

    u can't make big money with prking anymore so many domainers jusr content themselves with paying domain regfee each year.. and call that an accomplishment.

    10 cent day = 36$ year

    which pays reg many times offer

    many of the names i've sold recently, were held between 8 and 12 years, and they were parked during that span.

    when you own domains or have a portfolio, that produces enough revenue to pay the renewal fee's or more, then you're in a position to leverage negotiations.

    imo...

    it was different in past.. during the 8-12 years you had yours

    now most portofolios by more recent domainers simply do not produce parking revenue

    that's because of what they add to their portfolio's... random names like 4 to 8 letter or numbered domains in various extensions, new .whatevers, and so-called brandables, those categories rarely make a dime from parking

    new school domainers tend to follow trends and hype, trying to catch the bandwagon or whatever propaganda the latest video tells them about.

    the only thing that's different is that ppc's don't pay like they did years ago, but they still pay.


    imo...

    Mate every month the number keeps on declining. I dont bother to email my manager, but the clicks have not changed but the revenue is almost 25% from what it was every subsequent quarter if I keep the new ones out of the mix!

    then you still make more than most.

    I assume you have domains picked for parking.. or good keyword domains...

    Actually I have two .TO domains that each pay just shy of $500/month. When I had numeric domains, I had a couple that paid ok, maybe $1 to $1.5 a day.

    I put all domains i'm buying immediately on parking. Who knows when i'll have a time to develop them, or when i'll sell them. But some of them amaze me, showing some residual traffic or $5-7 clicks. Then of course i grab them from the parking and develop.

    well most new domainers do what you said, but they do it because investing in great domains with great keywords, which I asume is what you recommend for good parking revenue, is simply out of their pocket reach.

    for sure.. but the keyword is that you're buyng those domains.. most new domainers cannot afford to buy. so they end up handreging. and I am not sure to what extent u can get good parking rev from handregs.
