  • So you’re looking at your list of domains and thinking to yourself, “Do I need to re-register all of these?” The problem is that they are like your children. You remember when you first registered each and every one of them and of course you could ...

  • Great insight JP. You hit the nail on the head when you said that domainers have great traffic.....! Absolutely we do! The name of the game has always been to divide and conquer the domaining community and get direct access to the traffic.

  • I agree with you. I'd like to think that they are not out to get you if you speak out against them (which you clarify here that was not your intention anyway). But I also don't think Google is out there rooting for the domainer. It's actually probabl

    Hi Michael, Great research and observation! But, if you love Google, why are you squawking about this? You're going to get your account penalized.

  • That is always a possibility.....my experience has been that the scam adverts are normally the low paying advertisements though.....which means the high paying adverts should get higher CTR.
    2 weeks ago
  • You are right, Michael. Still it is possible that there exists a reasonable explanation. One would need to see the actual ads. Perhaps higher paying ads are obvious scams, and hence the lower CTR.

  • If the domain was being filtered out then the domain wouldn't receive the view and it would contribute to the overall CTR/EPC.

  • Is it possible that higher-paying advertisers put up stricter display criteria, resulting in the domain being filtered out sometimes ?

  • OK, I'm normally a pretty level headed guy but this time I'm going on a little rant..... Click Through Rate (CTR) and Earnings Per Click (EPC) are the mainstays of domain traffic monetisation as they are often the indicators of revenue growth or d ...
