    So I recently picked up some more names, the idea behind these mainly traffic/keyword based domains. Each of these names has an exact keyword match of 2000> based on my research but that's as far as I got.

    I know that I could park them, but I would rather cut out the middleman and monetize them myself. Any tips?
    One of these names has a very high CPC but only if the clicks come from India? Almost $100 cpc for clicks that come from India, again I am very new to this so I may have jumped the gun but I figure its a small price to pay I only got 5 names anyway just to try this out.

    The names are

    freehockeystreams.com

    rentalcarsspain.com

    companiestax.com

    plantswater.com

    demoaccountforex.com

    A combination of common keywords will not bring any visitor to your domains as these domains have no history.
    So the only way to monetize them is to build up at least a minisite with unique content and related seo optimization.

    It is very difficult to cut out the middleman if you choose to use an ad feed from one of the many ad providers. And any returns will be small.

    The best ways to cut out the middleman will require some work. One recommended way is to create money sites. These are sites with sufficient content and quality that are approved by adsense. Then put links to those sites in your landers. Another is to put links to affiliate sites or afilliate product pages. Yet another is to get subscribers. And still another is to create your own product that you can link from your domain landers. Of course you can combine these methods. If the domains get the traffic then your income will be significantly better than parking.

    Shameless promotion: We have created a service, Megalander.com, that allows you to use the methods above to create custom landers for your domains.

    Some of these names do have some age to them but no backlinks or anything like that. Again I am new to monetization. My only experience with domains is reselling them by auctioning and reaching out to end users.

    My question was more really about how much can I expect to make per click from ads, in comparison to just parking and if it will be worth my time in this case.

    Any suggestions? Which one of these names do you think has the most potential?
    I am really just looking for someone to point me in the right direction here. I already have some ideas but just wanted to see what some of you on here think...

    You will not see a difference. That's what basically parking is. What will make a difference and worth your time is what I listed above. The adage you get what you pay for can also be applied to you get what you spend time on.

    Right, I understand.

    So developing>parking obviously. Of course a site that is ranking due to content will get more views so even if the ads are the same It will have more views which will = more profit.

    In the mean time as I try and pick which one to work on first, what is the best parking service to use to test out and see if I can make some $ while my domains sit.

    My advice would be to save your money. Get the best domain you can afford. Create a money site. Then use whatever revenue to acquire more domains. You can register 10 new domains for 100 dollars or you can acquire a much better domain for 100-200 dollars on the aftermarket. It is important to remember that revenue is not determined by volume of domains but the quality of the domains. One good quality domain can generate 1000x the revenue of 1000 poor domains.

    So to read between the lines, in your opinion none of these names are worth developing?

    I can't recommend one parking service. Some parking companies do better with certain domains while others do with other domains. You have to try them out. However, parking revenue will be dissapointing and take a lot of time to find the right balance. So either way, you will have to dedicate time and effort.

    Sorry, all I can see is "incoherent" combinations of words, not exact keyword match domains.

    Not in my opinion. Find a domain that will inspire you and push you to work harder. Remember, Jeff Bezos had printed Amazon.com in large letters and put it above his desk as he was building his empire. It, the domain, inspired him and he knew he just had to build it into something big. Now we can't have a domain of such callibre but having just one domain that inspires us can make us build something great. Whether that is building an e-commerce site or a domain portfolio.

    No you bought a reality check. Now you know it isn't going to cut it without content.
