    Good lord that would have killed me I think. I'd have been out balling like a straight gangster with that kind of money and died in a gutter somewhere.

    Phew! Close call...

    Part of the discussion I’ve had over the past few weeks in working on closing the mid to high five figure sale of a domain I have is that this domain has brought in far more than the purchase price in PPC parking revenues over the years, such that I am in no hurry to sell it as it’s already made its bones.

    I’ve conceded to the buyer that it’s no longer bringing anywhere near those glory days revenues but somehow this discussion with him has satisfied his curiosity as to why I haven’t bothered previously to sell such a top name.

    Back in the Spring I put a few hundred domains on Sedo parking. I had a couple days of $20 traffic and they banned me from parking because they thought I must be scamming them. :-P

    Times have changed ...

    I know, I was just saying what Sedo does to you. In the past that kind of traffic wouldnt get noticed by Sedo.

    Wow, that is remarkable! How many domains did you have parked then, to result in that amount of revenue?

    Not dead, but for me it's couple hundred a month now (sometimes three) versus couple hundred a day in the old days.

    11 > 12 years ago, I too thought it would never end

    but, I won't say parking is dead
    why?
    because new players keep investing in this niche`
    somebody is either buying existing service or creating new platform from scratch

    still, even the fractional amounts being paid today, may be enough to pay renewal fee's and potentially support the portfolio.

    imo…

    I feel the pain big time! For roughly 8 years with 2007 being the midpoint my monthly statements were similar but not quite as good as yours, more like 7 to 9k month on average month after month year after year.

    So good all i needed to do was hand reg most any 2, 3 or 4 word keyword name in any financial category to start making money on it every day like magic. It was like taking candy from a baby.

    Because of that revenue I never even tried to sell domains for a decade. Now PPC is down 97%, that's not a typo, it's really only 3% of that level. I think I had a similar number to you on ppc at the time, somewhere from 1,000 to 2,000 if I remember correctly. It's so bad now sometimes I don't bother to try and monetize.
