DomainPark - AdSense for Domains Sparks Huge Forum Debate

We discussed the big hype back in late December on AdSense for Domains and Poor Traffic where Danny called for reform of these types of products.

Lat yesterday evening a thread at WebmasterWorld was started named Domainers making Millions. With a title like that, it sure brought in a ton of response, at the time of writing this, it has 68 posts within its 5 massive pages. The thread is about how much money these "Domainers" are making from parked domains with the AdSense product on them.

The discussion in brief, discusses the anger some people have with this product, much of what was covered in the December entry. But as novice points out this is not new, there has always been these types of monetized park domains out there, even before AdSense. "AdWords ads appeared on parked pages before AdSense even started." And you see them all the time with Overture ads.

WebmasterWorld moderator, WebWork has a detailed suggestion for the DomainPark product. A bit too detailed for me to recap here, so check it out. There is currently no word from Google on this in the thread. With its current popularity, and it not even being featured on the WebmasterWorld homepage yet, I am sure we can expect some type of response from Google, I hope.

Monetizing from parked domains is indeed very old and I see nothing wrong in it. I think what we are seeing more and more of is jealousy of sucess taking over the forums and Internet in ways.

Is this thread appearing as "on hold" to anyone else?

Yea, I see hold: status: On Hold: This discussion is temporarily on hold pending administrative review. This simply means there was something about the post worth reviewing before public viewing. It could also mean work is being performed on the thread or foru

While some people wonder how to make ends meet to pay their annual domain name renewal, others already operate a stable of "pay-per-click landing pages" for most of their names, thus getting sufficient revenue to easily renew the names until there's time to develop each name individually into something more meaningful. Pay-per-clicks and landing pages are the new financial DNA of web merchandizing. It's good for everyone. Quality free content is now ubiquitous and it's all for the better. Thanks in part to the PPCs.
