    Hello all,

    I understand, parking revenues aren’t what they used to be; I take it, partially due to visitors using ad blockers.

    That said, what’s the best parking company and/or platform, which offers for sale landers with “Make Offer” submissions, along with PPC monetizing, when visitors are using ad blockers?

    ParkingCrew.
    Even with adblockers their landers are able to receive offers...

    thats what I thought, about PC also... until some np member tested things with his blocker and it was an empty page.

    parkign crew does not work.. same for bodis... but they both will say that those special adblockers (not all adblockers blocked parked pages) represent small minority of visitors..

    the only company I know of which will show the sale banner.. even if ads are blocked... is voodoo

    but op asked which company shows both ads and banner with adblockers.. so seeing banner only doesn't answer op really.

    I asked @tonyk2000
    He tested ParkingCrew with adblocker.
    And he said - no any problems.

    Ads are impossible with adblockers, because they block the execution of Google javascript.

    Would ad blockers effect the number of visitors the domain parking page is getting?

    Thanks to all!

    FWIW: I use Dynadot "For Sale" landing pages, but they do not offer revenue parking.

    I also use Adblock Plus, Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker, and uBlock Origin, which may be over-kill but I have no problem seeing the entire DD lander, make offer form and/or submission buttons.

    That said, if only sales banner displays, on revenue parking platforms, not much reason to switch, from DD. I'll check out those mentioned and see what displays.

    wow

    you use a lot of ad bloc :)

    but on the ppc side, last year that name averaged ctr of 16.880% with rpc of $3.13

    Thanks for checking though

    imo...

    Yeah, I’m sure most visitors won’t have that many ad blockers but seems to works, for me. :xf.wink:

    Those look like very nice PPC numbers, how do they compare to previous years?

    You’re welcome.

    If anyone using Parking Crew, Bodis and/or any other parking platforms, would like domain checked vs. my ad blockers, post here and I’ll see what displays, when I get a chance.

    yes... they use same templates... on pc they call it AUTO template (default)

    and on bodis with their new updates... they now only have one template.. this one I posted.
    which is fine by me... cause its their best performing one anyway statistically.. so why even offer people others... which perform less... that was their argument to remove all other templates.. and I happen concur. cheers.

    thanks for confirming that.

    however, I think offering other templates to choose from, should still be an option.

    because if all ppc's adopted same background, then eventually all parked names would look the same to visitors.

    and that probability, could potentially reduce ctr across all platforms, because of their similarities....rather than their differences or uniqueness.


    for instance, take a look at www.blazingsevens.com which is parked at Fabulous, but feed provided by PC

    now, look at https://web.archive.org/web/20120114173740/http://www.blazingsevens.com:80/
    that is old ppc page from fabulous.com, before PC took over.

    back then, the name had nice clicks.... now, nada
    but which page would one more likely click links on today, if both templates were available?

    imo...

    yes they would all look alike.. but if its a good and nice look.. and performing well.. as is this one from bodis... then I have no problem with ti.

    it's one thing to force everyone to use one same thing that's ugly and perofms bad.. and then its another story to offer a nice one that performs well too ;)

    OK, so I neglected to mention, I also use Privacy Badger :xf.smile: and I'm checking on Firefox.

    That said, on www.8song.in with Bodis, I see a blank page with Adblock Plus, Ghostery, uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger enabled, as well as, with only Adblock Plus enabled & with only uBlock Origin enabled.

    Here's what I see with only Ghostery enabled:

    I'm redirected past the screen pictured above to this, with only Privacy Badger enabled,:

    thanks for yoru time! appreciate it.

    those results are not encouraging at all. as much as I like bodis, their support etc.

    one can easily get the feeling that we are all seriously missing out on some payments.. while the impressions I got from their support when asking about adblockers.. is that its.... negligable...

    perhaps @matt_bodis would care to coment on this? it appears also to be possible to make yourself as Bodis whitelisted by many adblockers... are there chances of any improvement in the adblocking department to be done by bodis in future?

    I admit it is quite scary not only in terms of potentail revenue missing.. but parkign all our names with you, for the occasional revenue here and there, while most relying on forsale banner to generate revene... and knowing now how so many could literally not be seeing neither ads nor banner.. this is a very discomforting thought!

    thanks!

    On www.xn--moble-p4a.de at PC, I once again get ads and for sale banner, with only Ghostery enabled.

    Here's what I see, with Adblock Plus, Ghostery, uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger enabled, as well as with only Adblock Plus enabled & only Ublock enabled:
    PC Mobile.de example All ad blocks_only Ablock PLus + only Ublock.png

    Here's what I see with only Privacy Badger enabled:

    You're welcome, my pleasure!

    Yeah, I messaged Bodis, for some domain examples and @TroyBodis was kind enough to send me a few, which with ad blockers enabled, I got blank pages and with ad blockers disabled redirected me to various online retail stores i.e. dell.com, mlbshop.com, realtor.com, fanatics.com, etc.

    Still awaiting reply, on those results but look forward to seeing, if any comments here, as well.

    @matt_bodis
    @TroyBodis @bodis

    any chance you can settle once and for all the dilema of how much trafic to your pages is actually blocked by various blockers? perhaps give some stats? how much profit and revenue is that eating into? how many sale landers and potential buyers is it losing to people?

    from the tests done above by the np members, it almost seems like every or most blockers under the sun results in a completely blocked page on bodis. no ads, no sale banner.. and last I checked adblockers are extremly popular..

    if this is all true and situation is alarming and urgent... then do you plan to do something to perhaps get yourself whitelisted by blockers like say voodoo? it is apparently entirely possible... given voodoo does it. I hope I am not imposing, and you see how this could be an extremely urgent and sensitive situation for people who use you not only for ads.. but also for sale banners etc... thanks!!!
