A $329 Click On A Parked Page?

Before reading this post I recommend you read my ClickMillions Review

This is one of those things that I had to see to believe. I received an email from a blog reader who claimed to have received $328 from a single click on one of his parked pages. While I’ve had some affiliate relationships with actions that pay this much I’ve never heard of such an incredibly high-paying click. So I told him I had to see it to believe it and he sent over the proof and said he would be okay with me sharing this in a post as long as I blur out the info that would violate the TOS with his parking company which is Domain Sponsor in this case. This screenshot was sent to me with nothing blurred out and I did the blurring so know that the data on there is correct, I’m still in shock as I thought parking companies were honestly only paying a few shekels here and there but this certainly proves me wrong, and as you all know, I’m always happy to admit when I’m wrong.

329_dollar_click

I was able to hop on the phone with the domain owner who gave me a bit of information about his strategy behind parking and made it very clear that parking was alive and well. I have never made great money parking but this definitely has me interested. I am trying a software package and training program that this particular Domainer swears by and if I see good results I’ll certainly share it with all of you. For those thinking, oh this must be some typo or Trademark violation I can tell you, it’s not, and I steer clear of those for good reason. This particular domain was a geo-targeted name in a very lucrative niche. I have always poo pooed parking but it might be time for me to eat my words. While I don’t think that anyone should bet on getting $329 clicks all day long, the fact that it is possible still amazes me.

So I’ll be diving deeper here and as usual reporting back to all of you. Stay-tuned and as always feel free to comment and let your voice be heard!

UPDATE – I have had a chance to try-out ClickMillions and do not recommend it, please read my full review here.

    and it was on a Sunday! Wow, that’s crazy… What amazes me is how much the advertiser is paying?

  • RJ April 18, 2013, 8:24 am

    Fails the sniff test Morgan…
    Geo Targeted + Real Estate can’t be.
    Geo Targeted + Service more likely but what service has such high margins that they can afford to spend $329 PPC on perhaps a dozen clicks before it converts? Cant be anything home related. DUI, Divorce, Insurance? Loans? Is my guess

    “I am trying a software package and training program that this particular Domainer swears by and if I see good results I’ll certainly share it with all of you.”

    What do you mean by this?
    Is it some keyword optimization software or something else?

    I have received mega clicks before up to 100 in old days but still get 20, 30, sometime even 50 dollar clicks on insurance domains.

    It sounds like another marketing guru doing a set up to sell suckers a package later on down the road.

    I call BS on it.

    Hey everyone,

    It’s my domain that made that money. Morgan you can always use my name and company name if you would like. I have no reason to hide behind anything and will always back up everything with proof.

    Yes I get clicks everyday that range from $20.00 to $300. The problem I see in this industry is lack of information being shared. I can show you a lady who started using our program about 15 days ago and she had a $105.00 click. I have several other members who have had higher than that and lower.

    Here is a screen shot of one of Jeans domains:

    Here is another customer Luna and she had a big click as well:

    Now I can go on and on showing proof but the bottom line is: Parking is far from dead and there are others besides myself making these types of clicks.

    Hope this helps and am open to any questions.

    Thanks for sharing Richard.

    How can we know more about your software?

  • Mike April 18, 2013, 10:17 am

    Hi Richard,

    I’m interested in your program at clickmillions. Could you possibly provide me with a promo code?

    In return I will give a honest review of it and post it on the warriorforum or any other popular marketing or domainer forum.

    Pls let me know. My email is “mike (AT) websmartpro.ph”

    Thanks
    Mike

  • DR April 18, 2013, 11:27 am

    Richard, I would like to hear about the program also…

  • Arthur April 18, 2013, 1:15 pm

    I have been out of Domaining business for a while now due due to lack of available time commitment on my side, but I still keep a small amount of domains that keep a decent traffic coming with a high CPC … I never got smth this high, but $10-24
    a click is an average pay out on some of my domains . there is definitely a lot of potential on parking domains, but my tip, don’t just think of .com …think about English keywords with ccTLD … I
    Have plenty of domains that I hAND registered, and just parking them them paid off we over 1000x ..

  • Jaybuk April 18, 2013, 2:55 pm

    I think there is a line forming here. Share, share, share ;-)

  • Morgan April 18, 2013, 4:14 pm

    Sorry for the delay guys, a bunch of comments got stuck, just approved them all :)

  • Samit Madan April 18, 2013, 4:50 pm

    I think ClickMillions requires you to purchase dropping domains unless I’m mistaken?

  • don April 18, 2013, 8:18 pm

    Ive seen reports that show terms like mesothelioma lawyer is one of the highest search bids reported by google, I would assume that parking revenue would not reflect adword prices for the search network rather would more closely reflect what an advertiser would pay for display network, so if u are working the numbers back words, who is paying upwards of $400 (factoring in a rev split with parking co) for a display based click

  • Adi Weitzman April 18, 2013, 8:22 pm

    Hi Richard,

    Can you speak about what niches you think have newbies should be investing in?

  • Chris April 19, 2013, 5:45 am

    He is a well-known domain parking expert and he has posted a lot of his tricks in one of the forums contains 17 pages and counting, and I’ve read it all on one day! Parking dividend is very much profitable:)

  • Nico April 22, 2013, 9:17 am

    Hi Morgan,

    it happens occassionally. We once had a USD 542,50 click:

    http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=407164056044658&set=a.141053515989048.30516.108045305956536&type=1

    In cases like that, I am pretty sure though an advertiser made an error while bidding (such as bid 542,50 USD instead of USD 54,25).

    But yes, we can confirm that we see occasional clicks like that at ParkingCrew as well.

    Cheers
    Nico

  • Morgan April 22, 2013, 10:17 am

    @Nico – that is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing :)

  • Tim April 22, 2013, 10:25 am

    There are some pre-reqs involved here. The ability to purchase quality domain names in a lucrative niche, the skill and time to rank on the first page of a search for the valued keyword(s), and the ability to drive qualified traffic to the parked page.

    You can learn the skills required to achieve success with domain parking or almost anything, really. But, if you don’t have the right names or the money to buy them, it’ll be a long, hard climb.
