Once you purchase a domain, how do you go about setting up the parking?

Thanks for the tips, guys.
Its easy setting up the domains. Just register into Domain parking company and add your domains into ur account... Change the DNS or Setup forwarding for your domains (this info you will find in your account once u have an account with any parking) .. And just sit back and relax...


Secondly we can get many domains. But the most important Thing is If that domain is getting any traffic. Coz if u just register any bla bla domain you would end up loosing. Best thing is to get the domain. submit the domains in every search engine.. Can use WEBCEO. nice software for submiting your domains to various search engine and directories with good SEO thing.(there are many others just google it)

This are the tips if your domain is brand new...

And once you park your domains through them your domains get listed in google or yahoo.. I have seen few of them like imonetize, trafficz, through them Your domains get listed in search engine over a course of time...

And domain parking would be changing very soon. And our parked pages will not just be links links links......... now they would Have . This major step is been done by few of the companies. And i know they have something called as WEBSITE 2.0. Where your domains have links, banners, and CONTENT... So now we would be seeing a mini site kinda stuff.. And this would also help our domains getting crawled by search engines....

So guys just wait As most of the parking are customizing there templates an adding contents an within few months we would see in many other parking companies................i would update you people if i found any other such stuff...


Till the time........ njoy..

Have a gr8 weekend :D

I'm going to respond to the requests to see some of Sohil's domains. I'm not sure if he feels comfortable doing that. He is giving us much information about how to find domains, how to park them, and how to help them get more traffic. I think it's a little too much to ask him to tell us all the details of what he is doing. If he wants to, then that's great, but I think that's asking a little too much.

And the truth is that you really don't need that information. Follwing his advice, I looked for some domains that were on a topic that I was interested in and felt sure that the bids would be pretty good. In this case, "medical billing software". If you have an expensive product, you are going to have high bids. It doesn't have to be cars or yachts, it can be something like Engines, CNC machines, or construction equipment. If you have high bids you don't need a lot of traffic to make a profit, even if it's to have the domain pay for itself each year at the very least.

I have been at TrafficZ for about a month and had made about $7 with about 80 domains. Well one of 6 medical billing software domains that I just bought a couple of weeks ago just had a $16 day! So, while it's early in my little experiment, it seems to be working.

So, the simple formula that I have learned from Sohil is this:

1) Pick a topic that has pretty good bids.
2) Do some keyword research to find out what people are using for that topic.
3) See if you can find some domains that have the keywords.
4) Pick some of the best ones, register them, and park them at TrafficZ or another place.
5) If you use TZ or another place that lets you do some optimization, do it!
6) Submit the parked pages or find places to get some links.

7) Track what you spend and how much you make. Any domain that is not at least paying for the renewal fee you should probably try and sell so you can buy something that will. If you get an offer to sell a domain for a nice profit, consider doing that. Someone may then resell the domain for more money, but you may not be able to. Sometimes it's better to take a nice profit that's real then lose an imaginary fortune latter. Remember, any business where you can buy something and sell it for at 100% more than you paid for it is a good business, so selling a domain for $20 when it cost you $10 might not be a bad idea.

sorry friend i dont like sharing my domain names.. I couldnt do that.. But whenever i keep my names for sale that time i would let u all guys know so you can take a sneak peak ;)


I just would tell you that what nielsen told is just perfect.. Whatever points he has written are just completely perfect.. Im happy nielsen that you got what i had tried explaining, And happy that some1 got the results.. Really very happy.. Now i can see ur addicted to parking and now u could know y i just love parking domains rather developing ;)


Main things are just do a good research of your ddomain name, which keywords you would put to optimise your page  and then get ur name registered... Thats very important...

Few things i would say is try few parking services i would recommend around 3 minimum and keep ur domain 1 month in each parking service and see where it works best.. And then whichever parking seems good keep ur name with them... Thats the way i do.. People always talk which parking is good. which pays high and all that.. I dont see any parking bad. It all depends on ur name,traffic, keywords and so many things.. some domains work well somewhere others will work well somewhere else.. So you need to find the excat soltmate for ur lover lol.....

Parking companies this days are providing so much of optimisation and so many new things to optimise your domains. Just came 2 know from 1 of my friend who is in charge @ parkingpanel.com.. They would launch some amazing ecommerce template for ur parked pages..

www.pp-cameras.com
www.pp-ipods.com
www.pp-dvds.com

This are some of the example just have a look.. Parked pages are gonna change completely. Every parking is trying to work and improve there parked pages like a real website and this is just the beginning..

There are dozen of parking companies arround. An every1 has something or the other unique stuff.. PArkingpanel i feel is really good in optimising the names.. I have some normal kinda names there which hardly got traffic and i parked the names there.. And had automatic optimisation.. after a month i had a look in my account and was surprised all my names had got some traffic.. was little but i saw some numbers rather than 0.. lol... So theres so much of things going with all the parking.... you should really get going with all those things... You should have accounts in all parking and see how good is there system what they have.. And try them.. Your parked pages are optimised surely and in 3 to 4 months you surely see something going. Surely...

This is just few things.. there are many other stuff and few very important are.. 1 is optimisation.. an keywords.. This really helps..

I just give you 1 example i had registered many names in this coulple of months.. Recently i added some 50 names to active audience and some names didnt had traffic some names got.. few names even got licks.. out of that 2 names i saw got 2 and 4 clicks respectively.. but the earnings when i saw was very less as comaped to name.. Then i just optimised and added few keywords and did some tuning... after 10 days i got again 2 clicks on that and it made me $8 for those 2 clicks.. nearly 100 times more what i got last time ;). So this are the things you need to work out..


If you are knowing what is domain parking, little bit of seo and website stuff then you could really work it out...

N for newbie its not easy.. If you really want to get into all this. Just learn the basic of what is website, and web designing and little bit of seo thing.. Coz once you know all this things then it coul help and you could try  things.. Without knowing anything you get here you are gonna loose 99.99% just 1 in a million could be lucky sometimes;)...

This all things are like diploma and Degree kinda things.. You need to study well all the basic then only you could understand all the things and get going..

always i see a newbie having all the common questions being pinged and they see it like just get a name park it and see ur account earning... $$...

Really its not at all easy, You need to give few years to it to understand and work on all things.. Then you could see something rolling..

Anyways good luck to you all. Just try your best and understand all the things perfectly..

If you have anything just shoot a question here and im here to answer :)

have a good day ahead :)

First things first sohil how are you? I just saw on news that there is flood in mumbai are you all right?

I would have to agree with you on "Different domains perform on different parking companies"

Testing and gaining the insight with the experience can be the best technique to get the maximum output with minimum number of domains.

I'm glad I have been able to learn from you, Sohil. And any newbies here have a GREAT advantage if they listen to what is being said. It can save them from making a number of errors that most keep making.

While Sohil doesn't want to provide what his domains are, there is no reason for him to. There are many, many keywords with high bid prices, and many domains with mid-range keywords that will also generate some nice income if selected well and then optimized.

getaddicted, i really appreciate your advice!

if you're not willing to share what your domains are (which is understandable), do you think you could at least give me an idea of what your domains generally look like? are they usually two-word phrases? are they all .com's? do you ever use dashes or numbers? are they all in proper english? are some of them typos of high traffic sites? most of my domains are adjective+noun.com and i'm just wondering if i have the right idea..


thanks again!

I will try to answer some of your questions and Sohil can comment and answer others (I have not seen his domains...).

- Are they usually two-word phrases?

I'm guessing they are one if possible, otherwise 2, 3, or 4 words, depending on what people use to search with.

- Are they all .com's?

No, Sohil just talked about buying 1,000 .info domains because they were just on sale for $0.99.

- Do you ever use dashes or numbers?

He mentioned not using dashes or hyphens, but I don't know about numbers.

- Are they all in proper english?

They have to be what people search with for the most part, and he has never mentioned domains that are not English words.

- Are some of them typos of high traffic sites?
Sohil?

- Most of my domains are adjective+noun.com

Like "BigMoney.com"? That's fairly common, but the main thing is not what you use, but what people use to search with.

The reason that search keyword phrase domains work is that if you search in Google for something like "ebay auction ads" Google will include domains that have "ebayauctionads.xxx" and "ebay-acution-ads.xxx" if it can and there are not domains/sites that are better optimized for those words. Keywords in the domain seem to be a "fall back" that is used to help fill in the search results.

A parked domain is going to get traffic mainly in 3 ways:

1) Type-in traffic - Someone types in something.xxx in the browser address box and sees what they get.

2) Someone does a search at Google or another search engine and clicks on a listing for a parked page in the results.

3) Someone sees a link somewhere else and clicks on it.

I used to think that typein was the only kind of traffic you could get with parked pages, but some parking services allows a little or a lot of marketing and promotion now.

I have a directory and over the past month I have started to see people submitting their parked domains. My advice is NOT to do this, if there is any chance that an editor is going to look at what you submit. Do it with search engines that spider (Like Splatsearch.com), but not directories. I just delete any parked pages that are submitted.

If there is no traffic it is not likely to just start unless people start searching for the keywords in your domain / start typing in the domain in the browser.

Are you doing anything to create (legal) traffic?

I have been posting to my blogs and including links in the text to my domains as I find keywords and phrases that match what the domain is about. I also have some links on some of my sites.

RE:  How much you make from Domain parking / month

Hello, Sorry for answering that time in short as i was in hurry ;)..
And thank u nielsen for answering on my behalf...

Frankly speaking I have told many things about how to go and what to do. But Still some 1 or the other keep asking me the same question.. contly who got the concept could Capitalize....


I tell you somethings very clearly First... If you are a newbie or new to parking Just Keep 1 Thing in mind That you are not gonna make money till 1 yr....If you have good names with traffic thats another thing.. But if u have new domains and you are new here just take 1 yr with nothing..

See i see so many people say parking doesnt work, parked Domains should have good traffic and all those...They are right @ 1 point. But still there are many other things..

When i started parking i was Same like you all people.. But that time i also expected some money to get in and it took me around 1 1/2 yr to realy get going into parking till the time i hardly had few $.. When i started i just couple of names. I came 2 know about parking that time. So i started with sedo.. didnt made anything then i was real new to this thing and didnt even knew rules i just took oh yes we have a page with ads any1 clicks and we make money..

And that time people where not that much into parking and it was not that exposed.. Im talking about 2 2/1 yr back... So that time i told some or the other friends to click or something like that.. promoted the site. As i just didnt knew its wrong.. Then my account was banned. and that time i came 2 know from the email that such things are now allowed and then i started all my research..

See now u have so much of things here, parking is exposed so much.. you could learn and get things going in good time...But you need lods of research and many many things.. So i told u give 1 yr of time..you will learn many things. with 1 yr u will see some traffic going to your domains and you will have confidence..

People who start parking newly want to see $$ ASAP.. and if they dont they feel im not making anything people in forums say this is good they made xxxx.xx and all that.. So we feel why we cant and then we started roaming here and there ;).. Just keep it in mind it takes time........

Im writing all this things coz now i want every newbie to read all this things understand and i dont want any1 asking same questions.. Please Remember if you are into parking biz it takes time.. Any biz if you start you cant make lods of money it takes time and we also say 1 yr atleast to get going.. Same is your parking thing.. consider domain parking as ur biz as ur investment. As invested money gives back the returns in 1 yr.. good returns ;)...

1 yr is approx. And if you get success within 6 months or like that please let me know i will come and shake hands with u ;)...
hope people read all this now and then questions. I dont want to see people asking me same questions on and on...


do you think you could at least give me an idea of what your domains generally look like?
I will try to answer some of your questions and Sohil can comment  and answer others (I have not seen his domains...).

- Are they usually two-word phrases?

They are two word phrases, 3 some are even 4.... For me It doesnt matter i know easy names are gr8.. but 1 word names  are not easy to get..but still i have them ;)

- Are they all .com's?

Hmmm i have .com, .org mainly.... But i even have .in, and i got 1000 names from godaddy .info's are they are very cheap.. $1.21 a name.... Thats around $1100 i felt a quiet good investment... And you get good names in .info yes the value is less but remember 1 thing u get good names....

you wont get good .com names easily available.. and @ other extensions you will.. I have mixure of all of them.. But yes .com are the kings..

- Do you ever use dashes or numbers?

Hmmm i hardly have 1 or 2 names with dashesh in my whole domain portfolio.. I dont know y.. And im not sure if they work or not.. I just have no idea y i dont have dash domains lol..... And yes i have numbers in my name but only if it makes sense.. with keywords.

- Are they all in proper english?

yes all are proper english....

- Are some of them typos of high traffic sites?

I Just have few typos, And none high traffic sites.. Remember i have a habbit of buying new names, i hardly buy domains from auctions, forums or any aftermarket.. I just get new names new names new names. And none has high  traffic.. And i dont care about high traffic. I always have 1 thing in my mind you can call me crazy or anything .. A single name of mine should get atleast 8 to 10 clicks in 1 yr.. minimum..  this habbit im doing from long... if i get that much clicks im through and i keep the name for next yr... and renew.. Coz i do real good research of keywords and i check many things before buying a name..

For me a name of mine should get atleast 8 to 10 clicks as i said and according to keywords i would make around $5 to $10 minimum. Approx.... Thats enough from a single name.. atleast i have made more than registration .. And every year @ time of renewing i take many things in consideration and kickout names which hardly had anything...

Remember 1 thing im not a biggie in Domain industry.. Im also lke you all learning always.. Only the thing is few things of mine works well to me and thts the reason i have a little success in parking ;)...

I dont have any job, nor any biz.. Parking is just everything for me.. and its the only sole income for me...

- Most of my domains are adjective+noun.com

What nielsen said was perfect.. Im happy he has understood what im trying to explain and he is the only 1 here who has been using it and hopefull he is seeing good results... That nielsen will tell u ;)

The reason that search keyword phrase domains work is that if you search in Google for something like "ebay auction ads" Google will include domains that have "ebayauctionads.xxx" and "ebay-acution-ads.xxx" if it can and there are not domains/sites that are better optimized for those words. Keywords in the domain seem to be a "fall back" that is used to help fill in the search results.

I have all my names excatly same with the keywords used by advertisers. Excatly the same terms what is searched in google and the advertisers use..

A parked domain is going to get traffic mainly in 3 ways:

1) Type-in traffic - Someone types in something.xxx in the browser address box and sees what they get.

2) Someone does a search at Google or another search engine and clicks on a listing for a parked page in the results.

3) Someone sees a link somewhere else and clicks on it.

My advice is NOT to do this, if there is any chance that an editor is going to look at what you submit. Do it with search engines that spider (Like Splatsearch.com), but not directories. I just delete any parked pages that are submitted.



Anyways I hope everything i have explained... And i hope every1 understand what i have said. plz just go on asking same  things coz it takes time to write all that...

thank you.
