Company lets domain owners create stores for each of their domains.
Online advertising company Chitika, which has long been an alternative to Google Adsense, has launched a program for domain parking. This is good news for domain owners who have seen parking revenues drop due to changes at ad providers.
The Chitika program essentially lets you create an on-the-fly “store” at your domain using the company’s ShopLinc technology. You get paid based on clicks, but realize what is happening here: Chitika is making money when someone clicks and actually buys something. So in the long run your domains must convert for you to add value. This is where domain parking is heading in general. It will move from pay-per-click to pay-per-action, such as generating a lead or sale.
Here’s what your parked domains look like at Chitika:
Chitika is a good option if you have a consumer-focused domain name. For example, I’m going to try the service out with my domain PosterNook.com.
Look for other parking services like this to pop up. I also expect vertical (i.e. specific topic) domain parking companies to open soon.
