    @Sedo traffic stats is just for fun, ~all bots are counted there.

    @ParkingCrew data is the most reliable in terms of human traffic.

    From comparison of many domains here and there.
    And also it was confirmed by Bodis in my tickets. Their bot-filtering is not so good like PC.

    Ok You invited me so in my perspective dropdown in the last 2 months is big. It wasn't bad at begin of the year but seems going bad last months. I look on my domains monthly not care of CPC or any other variable.
    If we talk about numbers: the best domain that I had on parking had: 3$$ for a month.
    Traffic domains in my portfolio: more than 200 (count only domains that make profit bigger than renewal cost).
    Parkings that I use all the time (tested probably all): PC, Afternic, Voodoo, GD, Sedo

    So, with 1 domain making 3xx$ and with more 200 domains on your portfolio I assume it's safe to say that you are making at least 4 figures per month?

    Pretty much yeah I think it's a good way of thinking. Of course everything changes sometimes I sell domain or migrate from parking to parking to check revenue everything flows in this section ;).

    Bodis filtering in 2021 is significantly better than it was previously.
    So ~accurate.

    Dan showing almost everything so could be even bot only views. When I compare bodis and pc in 2021 filtering on bodis is in my opinion even stronger.

    Voodoo could be first/second it's mostly not open for new accounts only for old players, pc going now same way stoped instant register by api and only manual review domains etc.

    if we talk about filtering my list would look like:

    1. Voodoo / Bodis
    2. ParkingCrew
    3. Uniregistry (with their algorithms works pretty good I think it is not changed. I use them only for 25 domains) /Dan / Sedo (Sedo showing classified bots but not all < like all parking sites> but here I would say a bit lower than others) / Epik
    4. Godaddy/ Afternic

    Why are parking companies being so selective?

    Well, I just made my first $0.05 from Domain Parking at Bodis :laugh:

    How exactly Bodis works,. guys. Does it pay $0.05 for 1000 visits?
    How much clicks pay? haha

    I have anecdotal evidence of this. Ok...so a little different. It was a friend of mine, he was the seller not the buyer and the pics were of his ex wife but there was no horse needed...she already looked like a horse had taken a dump on her face.

    Cheers, bro. Why did you mention adblocker? Is it widespread?

    I see. Do you by any chance know if clicks outside the US count? I'm based in the UK.
    I use Bodis

    All clicks are counted.
    The only difference in revenue.
    Rich countries produce $X/XX clicks.
