Do you have the similar situation?
I did not do any changes with my domains parking in Bodis, but the revenue seems dropping too much.
Ps, I have 2 accounts there.

Guys, start thinking.
Your income will not grow anymore.
Google removes from search results your links, keeping only links with really good content.
They made 2 important core update in december.
You better read about those updates to understand why your income goes down.

look nobody ever proven including u that parked name on bodis with big sale banner on top is somehow worst for making sale than straight lander. u wanna prove it feel free. I mean u need a blind or dumb buyer to not see big banner on top that says click here to buy this domain...especially if he is serious buyer and really wants domain. I mean just put yourself in his shoes... would u not click it or miss that banner if u wanted buy domain ...come on...start thinking man

Definitely, it has been nice this past year doing parking and getting income covering the costs for renewals of multiple domains.
The questionis maximizing the revenue. If even a very rudimentary website with a blog can provide much more thanks to Adsense and other ad options, that's an important alternative to consider as well.
It is something to explore. I've never gone down the path of creating a basic website to monetize a name. There are a few that get significant type in traffic that could make some money.

Not even sure where to start...it's surely been covered well here. Now that I think of it, it might be the first new year's resolution I've done in many years. Launch 5 basic sites to monetize!

I have domains that have high monthly traffic but there are no clicks, some poor traffic domains get random clicks, some have clicks but nothing credited, some show fees but no clicks...
Same here. I've always wondered why the reporting is so "wacky" on Bodis.

I m not sure who are those paid promoters that create topics here, they say that parking brings them allot of monthly income, they are most likely fairy tellers, but the truth is harsh, there is no profit from parking, only a waste of time.

Hi

monthly income is a revenue stream, for those specific domains,
but that isn't a profit until you calculate expenses for them.

imo...

but there are blank pages from blockers
Yes, there are some being blocked.

I can't recall if it is in this thread or another but someone did an analysis of percentages of likely blocks based on browser use, visitors, etc.

Without being specific, some parking options are better as far as getting whole or partial pages to display. I suggest anyone parking for income/sales do a check on their own names to see how they display on each service.

Hi

thanks for posting!

so, what do you consider to be "marketprice" for traffic/revenue domains?
i know it's a vague question without more details, like whether they are typo or generic names with type-in or link traffic.
do you have a scale or benchmark that's used?

i have some that have been earning parking rev for 16 years and even if they don't earn the same as in 2006...they still produce.

i know it's difficult as you say, to acquire them, even while some folks are still saying that PPC is dead.
and you gotta be diligent because there are some fake traffic sellers lurking too!

imo...
like you say it's not easy to put a generic price for every domains but i try to resume it a bit.
ex1) expired traffic domain WITH 0 resale value: max 12 months in rev.
ex2) typo traffic domain, no TM Issue, stable traffic, with 24+ months in rev: 50x at last 12 month average, can be realistic
ex3) typo traffic, no TM issue, 12 month in stats: 18x to 32x

Nowadays it's easier to find expired traffic domains but sellers asks also 24x of averages after first months where the domains make the most... but the funny part is that they are able to find buyers :)

Hi

agree, and the buyers they do find are assuming the highest risk, when there are only a few months of stats to review.

i know, cuz i got "caught-up" a few times over the years.

imo...

normally i don't buy domains with just 2/3 months in rev if i never dealt with them in the past.
There is a high change that those revenues will be chargebacked.
Also when you buy watching just stats, you can't know if any amount had been chargebacked unless the seller allow the parking company to tell you this.....
there are so many pitfalls.

ah yeah i forgot to add: i'm not believing to be better than others, this year i've been scammed too from a NP user and i lost low 4 fig like an idiot. My ass is still burning....

tell his name and what was the issue
the user is already disappeared and deleted from NP.
The issue? they are able to generate fake traffic and parking company can't detect it unless anyone tell them to check it carefully.

I never found people able to fake the traffic like that and for so long time.. those names had more than 1 year in stats.
After i purchased the domains... they stopped the traffic.
Now I don't buy anything unless I can envision where the traffic is coming from but yeah there are clean domains that get traffic and rev but i can't figure out where this traffic is coming from.

Maybe they used a client mail base to generate traffic. After you paid, they started to use the same email base for another domain or site.
Once I saw on Flippa a website for sale, the price was 400k, I checked the traffic and didn't find even 1 organic visit and 0 ranked keywords according to MOZ.
It was a news site with no valuable domain and a lot of trash posts, zero informative, full of ads, and even had no decent visual design.
The seller had only 1 previous sale, for a high price but that site also was trash without even 1 organic visit.
I and more users started to comment on It, and I even contacted the support and asked them to pay attention to this seller.
But they ban me forever and my Flippa account is suspended since then.
They also removed all our comments from that page.
Check that site, it can't be 400k.

I see now they reduced the amount of the ad, but still, it isn't worth 400k and now it is not on sale on Flippa.

, ive been using parking crew now and they pay regularly and give great stats on your domains .s is the clown that has my money
Sorry to hear about your bad experiences.
Does ParkingCrew provide any space for listing the domain for sale? Also, do you like their interface?
It is interesting that ParkingCrew is used by NameCheap and another registrar for their ad parking. If the big guys chose it, there must be some benefits there.

That's a shame, that you were trying to point out a problem, and got hurt in the process. Well, kudos for your trying. Perhaps, in retrospect, contacting customer support and alerting the ad provider may have been best?

After all, if the traffic isn't real, but they are getting paid big bucks, that doesn't help all the other folks trying to do it legitimately.

i'm not expert on websites and i didn't check the website, however only seeing that 70% of the traffic is coming from a direct source + a 20% from no_url_shorteners, for me is a very big red flag!!!!
That's why I contacted the Flippa support and told them about the potential scam.
But finally I got ban because of all my reasonable comments with a bunch of other users we made in comment área of that auction

For those of us with less traffic savvy, could you kindly explain what are "no_Url_Shorteners," and why it's a red flag?

It was a specific URL shortener, but NP does not permit them in threads.
So it is used i to mislead parking companies and SEO engines into believing there is more traffic than there really is? Perhaps it's best that more isn't said about this. We don't want to encourage any other folks out there to use this devious tactic.

That ultimately likely hurts revenues for parking companies.

Exactly!!!!
if we have to blame someone for the low revenues in parking we need to blame all the people that are trying to fake the system!!!
There are so many people trying to get paid with their bogus traffic and many of them pump social traffic using twitter (that's why the t dot co shortener).
Pumping direct traffic is also another way to fake stats.

Traffic source should be recognised pretty easily.. more it's hard and more it's a red flag.
There are few exceptions btw... I can't disclose more as it would be like to share some revenues for free and we don't want more competition :D
