Park a Domain and Cash In

I mentioned the other week how I bought a domain name and planned on testing it as a way to make some money. If you haven’t already, read that post here.

For those who are wondering how to optimize domain parking keywords, consider these simple tips:

Know your domain's traffic source and quality - by hosting the domains on your own server with traffic analyzer like Awstats. This feature is very common to cPanel. From there you will know geolocation and searched terms of your domains visitors. Use the searched terms as basis for your lander keywords. Know your visits geolocation so you’ll know what language to use for keywords and to what parking program will best monetize a foreign traffic, for non-US.

Keyword Discovery - know what people are really searching that are related to your domain names. Get the top 15 highest searched kw and use them for the lander. It benefits users because you provide them with what they're searching that will result to a high probability for maximum CTR. KeywordDiscovery is also a good alternative for Overture keyword tool (OVT, now that's no longer working). It wouldn't show same result as OVT was providing us but it can be of help do determine rough estimate of domain with extension type-in numbers.

Adwords Keyword Tool - know how much advertisers are paying for particular keywords that are related to your domain name. Get the top paying, most searched that are synonymous to your traffic searches. Use this as "guide" to project possible revenue.

For expired domain traffic, use Google and's Wayback machine for background and/or historical research.

Domain parking keyword optimization is easy for everyone by using these basic methods and tools. This is also really helpful for other web marketing campaigns and SEO.

This simple process is very common to most parkers but can be of help to those who are learning and new.

Bought A Domain: Beginning Of An Empire?

Alright, haha. This post isn't to announce the beginning of my online empire, but it is a first in my online carreer.

Last night I bought the domain name Why? Because there is a new site I see getting popular with the URL The idea is that, if someone types the URL in incorrectly they will go to my page, which will have relevant affiliate links on it that I can make some money from.

Any time someone types in, they will be redirected to a 'parked page' as it is called. Many internet marketers have tried this tactic, so I've just taken this wisdom and applied it. It cost me 10 bucks (I'm certain I could have got it cheaper, but too late). As long as I make 10 dollars this year, I'll be at least glad I took the risk. If it makes 20, I'll be alright with it.

But, will it succeed? It's hard to tell. Most people trying to located the BlogRolled website will likely be bloggers, and that likely means that they will be told of the site by a fellow blogger. That means they come via a link, which implies there will be no typo which takes them to my website.

Furthermore, there's always the high chance that BlogRolled won't become a popular website. It is a place for bloggers to sell a link in their blogroll, which may or not be a good idea. Advertisers may not be willing to give money to a low traffic website, and a high traffic blog may not be willing to lose credibility by selling spots in their blogroll. If the website can't catch on quickly, it will likely fail.

Then, if people end up wanting to go to the website and accidentally come to mine, they are likely to realize they're at the wrong place and leave. I need to target what I do on this page of mine heavily towards bloggers. I plan on making it as useful as possible.

I'll let you know how this goes, but as you can tell from my post I've already identified many shortcomings in this plan. Maybe somebody will by the domain off of me. Who knows.

What do you guys think? Am I crackpot for doing this?

Entrecard: We're More Than Glad To Steal Your Ad Earnings!

Just a quick update. For those of you bloggers who use Entrecard, they have just released a way for users to launch their own marketing campaign to buy Entre Credits.

What does this mean?

It means that traffic doesn't count for much - you're going up against those with more money than you. Just like many systems, Entrecard has caved into the demand for the wealthy users to buy their way up the system. That means that normal users have literally no chance to get their ads on websites with high levels of traffic - because now that people can just buy credits, they will blast up the cost for advertising on those blogs.

Google goes in one direction by penalizing those who try to game the PageRank sytem, while Entrecard encourages people to buy their way up to the top of theirs.

What's worse about this horrible, greedy decision by Entrecard is that they're literally saying, if you put a widget on your site, we'll find advertisers and take all of the earnings! Sounds fair!

If you don't like the idea, then remove your Entrecard widget. I've already started thinking heavily about this.

Thanks for selling out, EntreCard!
