Tim Schumacher made money with parked domain ads. Now he is making money by blocking ads.
Tim Schumacher co-founded Sedo, one of the largest domain name marketplaces and parking companies. He also served as CEO until six years ago. Now he’s moved to the other side: ad blocking. He is Chairman of Eyeo, maker of the popular Ad Block Plus program. On today’s show, we’ll discuss the irony of this, and also how web publishers and domain parking companies can ensure their ads still show to people who use the ad blocker. Also: Verisign’s patent, Amy Schumer’s domain, MMX earnings and an update on Namecheap vs. Tucows.
