That sinking feeling.
Domain investors continue to report falling domain parking revenue, and most people report earning less than a $10 RPM.
That’s according to greater than 1,000 people who answered the parking survey questions on the 7th Annual Domain Name Wire Survey.
While a lot of people reported neutral domain parking revenue in 2011 compared to 2010, and some reported greater revenue, this graph tells the tale:
Is this just a case of the small guys getting squeezed? Hardly. When you consider domainers with 500 or more domains, the number reporting a drop in revenue of 25% to 49% jumps from 31% to 68%.
57% of survey respondents reported earning less than a $10 RPM. Compare this to 2007, before the domain parking bubble burst, and only about 1/3 of people then reported an RPM of less than $10.
Domain investors are split on where domain parking revenue will head in 2012. 37% think it will continue to fall. Domainers with more than 500 domains are notably more pessimistic; 77% think parking revenue will continue to fall.
