Domain parking arbitrage works. But with a domain related domain?
Domain name parking arbitrage brings a select few players massive income. Until recently, individuals got in on the game at Parked.com (until Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) pulled the plug).
For the uninitiated, here’s how domain parking arbitrage works:
1. Buy a click on Google or other search engine
2. Send click to domain parking page
3. Earn (hopefully more) when visitor clicks on parking ads
Every major domain parking company forbids this (correct me if I’m wrong).
I came across an interesting arbitrage recently because the ad was targeted toward…domainers. Would a domainer actually click on a domain parking ad? I doubt it.
The search term was “parking domain name”, where this ad for DomainLoyal.com popped up:
This popped out instantly as an arbitrage ad, given its generic nature about the subject “domain name parking”. Sure enough, this is what I saw when I clicked through:
My guess is this arbitrage play isn’t profitable.
