New WhyPark platform released today.
Domain parking alternative WhyPark launched its enhanced platform today. Domain Name Wire previewed the new platform back in October.
After playing around with the system I must say I’m impressed. WhyPark 2.0 (as I’ll call it) is like an incubator for growing traffic and revenue for domain names. It’s ideal for domains that don’t get much type-in traffic and will only generate revenue through organic traffic.
Start with a domain, categorize it, then add a site description and keywords (WhyPark suggests keywords to you). In the example below, WhyPark had 165 articles for use on my domain:
You can choose to add custom articles as well using WhyPark’s custom content service ($19).
Next, you choose from dozens of layout options. You can fully customize layouts and get access to the HTML for fine-tuned editing. Then choose if you want to use WhyPark’s pay-per-click network or insert third party ads (e.g. Adsense). You can also add custom text links.
Now your site is live, and you have a number of editing options. You can add custom pages, change the order of pages, monitor user-generated comments across your network of sites, and choose promotion options. WhyPark has a menu of fee-based promotion tools such as article creation and submission to third party sites ($29), RSS feed syndication ($9), and directory submission ($19).
Overall I think the new system looks promising and is a huge advancement over WhyPark’s previous platform. I plan to play around with it over the next week to dive in to its functionality.
