Labeled as discuss in Domain Parking and Traffic Monetization started by frank-germany, Nov 23, 2018.
those were the days my friend ..
I thought the'd never end....
But they did
I looked a few weeks ago my revenue from back then, made me cry a little...
it's only 11 years ago .....
so is parking dead ????
at least the parking I as I know it is dead as dead can be
I remember $20k for a month just from parking. Crazy If You think about it... Thank God I re-invested most of it.
when was that? What happened to it? wow.
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...
not me, it would've been a great college fund or my kids.
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.
1k per day from parking lol!
not sure how many days you kept on doing this.. but at 300k per year.. it doesn't take long to become millionaire lol
that idea is what gurus try to sell you in paid online courses
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.
Times have changed ...
thats parked com not sedo
I didn't make this at sedo
I know, I was just saying what Sedo does to you. In the past that kind of traffic wouldnt get noticed by Sedo.
what subject does most traffic come from? (keywords etc)
you mean 11 years ago?
it doesn't matter
10-4 just reminiscing, gotcha.
Yes and parking is not dead but back in the old days it was fun
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.
wow that's excellent, is that from individual sites or from parking sites?
11 > 12 years ago, I too thought it would never end
but, I won't say parking is dead
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.
From the picture it shows he had 1567 domains parked
Haha, what a dolt I am. I glanced that side as well as I remember seeing the Account Manager section.
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.
