""Domainer profit margins: Michael Gilmour of WhizzBangsBlog.com knows his business. He presented numbers (I love to see numbers) on Google's traffic acuisition costs and the percentage of ad revenue shared between Google, domainers, and parking companies.
Guess what? Google¹s share has gone down (-29%), domainer¹s have basically stayed the same (-3%), and parking companies revenues have increased around 45% (since Q4 2005).
Google¹s share has gone down (-29%), domainer¹s have basically stayed the same (-3%), and parking companies revenues have increased around 45% (since Q4 2005). I think you get my point. :)
Some very smart person or group of people is going to set up a transparent and very well run "parking" company that will disrupt the current situation in a significant way. My guess is this company will offer variances of parked pages, real mini-sites and Transparent Accounting to those who park their domains with them.
Lastly, this company will take a much lower revenue share than other parked companies, and domainers with Traffic will stampede towards them.""
***FS*** I'll go one better.. the parking company that acts as the disruptive conduit upsetting the apple cart rev-share will be domainer centric. I have watched so many parking co's come and go.. Many "get" this biz but many don't.. A significant percentage of present day domain parking co's play a combination game of "keepway", "watch the competition then react" and "I think I've got something really special that nobody else does.. but I'm wrong" All those games eventually blow away amid disruptive competitive actions.
