A domain parking scam to avoid at all costs.
Over the past year several Domain Name Wire readers have forwarded emails to me from someone promising to boost revenues to parked domains that didn’t receive any traffic.
I received one such email on Christmas with the title “Merry Christmas to domainer!”
The email promised:
without any extra cost needed and no complicated development work, we can help you increase your no-traffic and non-earning parked domains. In some cases, by using our exclusive and proven techniques, revenue can grow by 5000%+
So how do they do this? They pump traffic to your parked domains. In 99% of circumstances, this is against your parking company’s terms and conditions. Odds are you won’t get paid out by your parking provider.
Whenever someone pitches you something too good to be true, just hit the delete button.
Does this sound too good to be true?
With our service, You can earn hundreds if not thousands of US dollars per day with only 150 No-traffic and useless domains! If we fail to increase your earnings, we will pay you $1000.
I played along with one of these emails, and was told that if I opened an account at HotKeys and parked my domains there I could earn $800 a day.
Someone trying to sell “click farm” services?
HotKeys is disguising these emails?
HotKeys is Demand Media, Enom.
