Domain Parking - an extra income

If you have any domains which you don't currently have a use for why not get something out of them for nothing!

By parking your domain name to the DNS servers of 'domain parking' companies you can earn an extra stream of income from visitors who access your URL.

Simply register with a domain parking company such as NameDrive and redirect your domain name to their servers. When someone visits your URL be it from a search engine, a link on another site or a direct type-in, they will be shown a page of search results relating to your sites domain name and/or previous contents.

Each time a surfer clicks on one of these sponsored links you earn an income, similar to using any other Pay Per Click search engines or publishing networks.

An example of a parked domain is:

May domain parking sites offer payments by PayPal and accept members from around the globe. So if you have a domain that is sitting around doing nothing, and you want to get something out of it - park it!

How to increase CPC revenue

Following on from my earlier post about monitoring CPC revenue, this post explains how you can increase your earnings at CPC affiliate networks.

As I mentioned before the revenue your site generates is determined by a number of different factors:
  • The average CPC value of the ads
  • The effectiveness of the ads targeting towards your content
  • The amount of traffic your site receives AND
  • Your click-through ratio.
By increasing any of the above (or ideally all) you can make a huge difference in the amount you are earning.

The average CPC value of the ads shown on your website can be influenced by placing popular and high-paying keywords related to your site content throughout your webpage. Use high-paying phrases more than once, and use some variation so lots of relevant keywords appear across your site.

The effectiveness of the ads targeting will be influenced by the above. The more keywords related to your content you have the better targeted your ads will be. For example if you had very little content on your site about the Internet ads may be displayed for broadband/dsl providers. Whereas a on a more developed site the ads may be more relevant to your page content, e.g. Internet Tips, Cool websites etc.

When using programs such as AdSense it is important not to use artificial traffic generation techniques such as traffic exchanges to boost your hit count, since this is specifically stated as a no-no in the terms of service. Instead you can use Search Engine Optimization techniques to ensure your site ranks high in searches related to your site content - bringing you a stream of interested visitors.

Click-through ratio is determined by relevancy (see above) as well as the ad formats chosen, ad coloring and positioning. An ad at the side of, or embedded into a popular article will have a higher click-through ratio than one at the very bottom of a page.

Monitoring CPC Revenue

An important job for a webmaster who is running a commerical website and is utilising pay-per-click (PPC) or cost-per-click (CPC) advertising on their site to generate an income is working out how to maximise their revenue.

Total revenue can be effected by a number of different factors, and in order to maximise your revenue it is important to consider all of them.
  • The average CPC value of the ads
  • The effectiveness of the ads targeting towards your content
  • The amount of traffic your site receives AND
  • Your click-through ratio.
You should be keeping track of these as often as possible, perhaps even on a daily basis. Many of these statistics may be able to be provided from the site which is serving the advertising, however the effectiveness of the ad targeting can only be judged by human eyes.

If you don't have figures for the amount of traffic your site is receiving, shame on you. You can either choose to use the total number of ad impressions you have delivered in a period divided by the number of ad formats you have on each page, or you can incorporate external tracking and compare this with the number of ad impressions you deliver.
