    I think perhaps contacting thee owner of the article and requesting a backlink from them to the site where you've placed their article might help with this Google problem seeing this as duplicate content? maybe? I don't know.

    If you're willing to put the hours and effort in I'm sure there are ways around these issues yes. I guess it all depends what you get back in return.

    Your best bet is probably to chat with someone who already uses these networks to find out how successful they are.

    I suppose if you have a domain that's bringing in huge amounts of direct type-in traffic then search ranking don't matter. Just as long as there are no black marks put against the domain.

    Maybe you should ask the question: Are you a domainer, web developer or both?

    As has already been mentioned by someone else, the more time you put in, the more you get back. It's just a question of how much time you want to put in.

    Year well I'm lazy with no web design skills.

    So......much harder for me.

    But there has to be some easier way to do this. Surprised no one as if yet has created a solution to make it easy.

    They won't link to YOU for posting their article. And that won't make it any less duplication of their content.

    Using content from other sites -
    https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2721312?hl=en

    Parked pages are a special case. They're not shown in search and you need to meet certain criteria and terms of use to use their parking ad feed.

    It's a great idea, actually. Any concerns about Google penalties can be alleviated with a 'noindex' tag. After all, the idea is to monetize typed-in traffic, not ranking the site and getting organic traffic.

    However, the bigger challenge is finding advertising networks that allow their adverts to run on domains with zero content. Perhaps a full page sales letter/video for digital products from marketplaces like Clickbank?

    Landing pages many have tried alot of designs. Would have to make it relevant to the domain name as possible.

    Hi

    your thoughts are too clogged to find a clear path.

    but it may not be all your fault.

    the game has changed a lot over the years and there's more "bull-sugarty" being circulated to filter out, than there is truth, to take in.

    still, you admit to being lazy and profess that there has to be an easier way.
    and.... you're surprised that no one else has created a solution for you, to be successful, without putting in any work.

    the easiest thing a domainer can do, is buy a domain name and park it

    but it's a little harder to buy domains that will actually earn money from ppc


    imo.....

    yea I'm too "clogged"lol perhaps more fiber?:xf.wink:

    anyways....

    I guess the thing that "bugs" me is well I do frequent these torrent sites ever since a friend put me on to them years ago if for no other reason but to occassionally see how "they make money" which is by advertising. I mean people upload tons of "content" on such sites. although mostly these sites are just "middle men" they don't really host "content" merely redirect to where the content is hosted mostly torcache

    many of these torrent sites have been around for years. so gotta wonder how the hell they stay open? and what ad companies utilize their traffic especially when it's garbage traffic?

    it might as well be adult traffic.

    yet it's still a huge industry. so someone must be doing something right or getting paid.

    that being said these mini sites. you see them all over the place. and as many have mentioned here. "it's not easy" or "it's an EFFORT" to create such mini sites yet there they are. Someone has to have done the "maths" and figured out how to turn a profit from such minisites even if Goggle probably ranks them poorly.

    I suspect sites like these are made by someone in some poor country working for pennies via Freelance websites.

    Me personally? I'd hire one "worker" overseas. get them "on board" for the first mini site. then offer them a steady paycheck say 10%-20% of the ad profits from each mini site they design for life or until the cost of designing the mini site is paid plus percentage % of the profit once the website is sold (or not).

    but what do I know? I'm a newbie.

    Those ads are called Native Ads, because they look much like part of the website and are easily clicked because their nature, unlike the traditional ones from Adsense.

    Unfortunately those type of ads only pay around 3 cents per click. So unless the site is developed to get search engine traffic it will probably earn just as much if not more as a parked page.

    Another thing to consider is you need to meet a minimum number of pageviews to qualify for those ad networks. I think taboola is something like 500,000 a month, those others I believe require even more.

    someone should create a website that charges $1 a month to list parked pages so that all the parked pages are on one website pretty much like a bb style format but where people that own the parked pages can pay to get their parked page nearer the top of a website that shows parked pages

    I don't think you are allowed to make backlinks to parked pages for most of the parking companies.

    in that case as many brandables are rejected etc why don't the domain name community create their own website where every domain is accepted and where each member of that website can set their own price and for such a website to offer a free escrow service and just 5% commission that funds an inhouse escrow service and a free trademark checking service inhouse etc

    Yeah. Already paid for SSL despite not needing one, just for the ranking :/

    and @Traveler , I just googled: ssl google ranking and got plenty of results. It's worth taking a look.

    Exactly.

    Somehow I feel that things go -for real now- to the wrong direction.

    All through the years it has been proven over and over that strict rules apply only to those that have no knowledge how to break any rules anyway... the rest that know stuff can do business as usual.... oh well :xf.rolleyes:

    Never pay for an SSL certificate.
    Serious hosting companies offer it for free.
    Or use cloudflare, they give you a free SSL.
    All my sites run under SSL protocol, it's free and boost SEO

    There is so much to say here. First, let me quickly tell you my background. I have been a web developer for over 17 years. I have worked exclusively with domainers since about 2005. I say this because I have seen a lot as far as parking alternatives and what domainers have tried to do.

    First, I am going to directly reply to several things posted:

    IF you are going to do something like this, start out as small as possible and test your theory first. Don't get hung up on the could bes and "potential" which really amounts to nothing unless you have some solid, proven numbers to back it up. Test first and test small.

    "How hard?" in development is such a hard question to answer. Basically it boils down to how much money, time and effort you are willing to put in. As an example, you can purchase a PHP script or landing page at Envato and have it up and running in 5 minutes. Same thing with WordPress. Rule of thumb: the more money, time and effort you put in, the more money you make. "How hard?" isn't really the right question. "How much effort?" is more like it.

    I have too many of my own projects going on at the moment but, again, look through Envato and WordPress. WordPress is definitly worth learning for a domainer. Lots of free themes and plugins available to get you running in no time.

    Biggie has been around awhile and people like him and I have seen just about everything under the sun. He is right. This is similar to MFA sites and minisites. They didn't work. Users aren't stupid. Google isn't stupid.

    Actually, I am familiar with quite a few one word dot coms owned by domainers who put up unique, regular content and still fail monetizing these sites. There's a lot of reasons why that I won't get into but will add more at the end of this thread.

    I agree but why miss out on search traffic? Not just search traffic but social network traffic as well? Why bother going through the effort just for type-in traffic? Might as well stick with parking.

    Go to WordPress.org and learn as much as possible. You'll be building sites in no time. :)

    There is a better way. In my experience, there isn't much beside development that has the better chance of succeeding beside parking. BUT you have to be very selective with what you choose to develop as you will be spending time, money and efforts. You should look at this part as running a business because it basically is. IF you were to put that much effort into it then it would be a great alternative to parking. Develop out your top domain first and focus soley on that. Then on to the next. Focus on one at a time.

    Otherwise, please don't waste your efforts and money chasing something that has been proven to not be as lucrative as one hopes.

    Before you go trying anything like this, I encourage you to research how Google treats sites and domains that use paid-for low quality links.

    IMO any knowledgeable buyer will rightly be put off by a huge amounts of low quality links, especially if they plan to build a reputable site on the domain.

    This is all too black hat for my liking.
