First Look – Visitor Day, Part 1

I first heard about Visitor Day at TRAFFIC Vancouver and I was immediately interested. What got me so interested? Visitor Day discussed a platform that allowed Domainers to rapidly develop their sites while maintaining control of their content and actually getting paid to put content on their domains! The idea sounded incredible and I thought it was really too good to be true.

Well Visitor Day launched and already people are starting to see some stellar results. I know a number of my readers have signed-up and I urge all of you to learn more about this solution. Over the next month I will be releasing a new video each week walking your through a different part of Visitor Day! So sit back, grab your popcorn, and get ready to learn how to dust off that portfolio and breathe new life into your domains!

    the site appears to be down. the service sounds interesting, though i’m wary of not being able to use my own adsense account… what kind of cut does visitorday take from ppc earnings?

      I’m not getting any errors, just triple-checked the link and Visitor Day is loading fine. Let me know if anyone else has any issues, awesome service that you should definitely check-out!

    “Each unique multi-page website you create is automatically optimized for the major search engines and filled with keyword focused content pulled from either established news and social sources or populated by Visitor Day Publishers. Websites are updated constantly eliminating duplicate content from appearing on web pages. Since each website is focused on a particular topic and is well-optimized – Visitor Day sites rank extremely well within the search engines.”

    Aren’t these two excerpts (from above) are contradictory?
    “…..filled with keyword content pulled from either established news and social sources…..”
    “…….updated constantly eliminating duplicate content….”
    No matter how often the content is updated, it is still duplicate content, right?

    I went to greenhealth.org…and notice it didn’t have a privacy page. I thought that was a requirement to put google adsense.

    Domaintools shows visitorday.com to have privacy protection/proxy.
    It also shows up as listed for sale on Sedo.

    Interesting, thank you for reminding me about this service.

    The reason you saw MicroSoctters.com as the first results was probably that you searched for “microscooters.com” instead of “micro scooters” as you do for the other domains.

    – “PPC Account Provided” how convenient, no thanks
    – No privacy policy
    – Filled with Google adsense
    – Content is based on Google news feed
    – Bare bones templating

    “Domainers who use VisitorDay see their keyword-rich domains reaching first spots within weeks. ” (VD) And their domains will be delisted soon after.

    I like your blog and the work you do but this an unworthy promotion.

    Hate to say it….. but…. the sites are very very ugly…do they get “nicer”? Some design elements? Can you improve them?

    I went to MicroScooters.com and looks worse then a parked page. Then, I clicked on different articles and was taken off site to actual article..so there goes the viewer.

    Glad you don’t have to use your own Adsense account because I would hate to take the chance of losing my Adsense account, so that is one plus for them.

    I think this program needs much more work.

    Just opening up the discussion some more.

    I’ve been trying these sites for a subset of my portfolio and they are truely the most unprofessional looking sites I have seen from any of the rapid development people.

    Paul sums it up perfectly:

    1) Getting a fraction of Adsense revenue – Poor
    2) fUgly looking sites – Poor
    3) Absolutely zero content on the sites. Only links to other sites with content – Poor

    Hi guys! I’ll try to address all your questions here. You can also reach out to me directly at bizdev@visitorday.com
    Thanks,
    Dimitry Yankelevich

    Epoxy:
    Q: the service sounds interesting, though i’m wary of not being able to use my own adsense account… what kind of cut does visitorday take from ppc earnings?
    A: Not using your own Adsense account is generally considered a good thing as Adsense provides very poor reporting. We are extracting much more information though APIs and sharing it with you in parking-style reports. If you’d still prefer using your own adsense account – contact me directly at the above email and we’ll create custom templates for you that contain your own adsense code. Our rev split is one of the best in the industry – 80/20, with 80% going to domainers.

    Bob:
    Q: Aren’t these two excerpts (from above) are contradictory?
    “…..filled with keyword content pulled from either established news and social sources…..”
    “…….updated constantly eliminating duplicate content….”
    No matter how often the content is updated, it is still duplicate content, right?
    A: Good question. The key is – ‘eliminating duplicate content from appearing on web pages’. We are trying to make sure no duplicate content appears on the same web page as it is bad SEO practice.

    Poor Uncle:
    Q: I went to greenhealth.org…and notice it didn’t have a privacy page. I thought that was a requirement to put google adsense.
    A: Great comment! This template indeed appears to be missing the link. We’ll update the template asap. Thanks!

    SFU:
    Q: Domaintools shows visitorday.com to have privacy protection/proxy.
    It also shows up as listed for sale on Sedo.
    A: We’re located in Cleveland, OH. Let me know what information you’d like to know about our company and I’ll share it here.
    I guess the name was listed at Sedo by previous owner. It is not currently for sale 🙂

    Frank:
    Q: The reason you saw MicroSoctters.com as the first results was probably that you searched for “microscooters.com” instead of “micro scooters” as you do for the other domains.
    A: Good point. However, if you search for microscooters or micro scooters in Google, you’ll still find microscooters.com on the first page

    Soundly Reasoned:
    Q:
    – Filled with Google adsense
    – Content is based on Google news feed
    – Bare bones templating
    A:
    – We provide other revenue streams such as Yahoo domain feed, CPA and direct advertising. Also, you get paid for every Article published at your site by bloggers or SEO professionals.
    – Content varies by domain. The longer your domain is on the system, the more custom content it attracts from publishing community.
    – Large portfolio holders work with us directly on creation of custom templates filled with various features. Facebook and Twitter also based on barebone templates. The template is NOT a problem as long as the content is WORTHY of visitor’s attention.

    Paul J Kapschock:
    Q: the sites are very very ugly…do they get “nicer”? Some design elements? Can you improve them?
    A: We have a line of templates. Some are ‘nicer’ than others. Unfortunately it’s a trade off – ugly pages convert better. BUT, we’re testing out several new templates that are multifunctional and look much better AND convert at a great rate. We’ll be releasing them in few weeks.

    Wow, I am thoroughly disappointed in this service. I just discovered your blog a few months ago, and this VisitorDay platform is awful.

    I could make a better platform in my sleep.

    Seriously guys, all these rude, negative comments are a prime example of why so many developers give up in disgust from trying to help us domainers solve our problems. Dimitry is working overtime to build the best solution available for large domain portfolio holders to instantly move away from the low revenue parking model into development and increased monetization of their domains. His system is still in the Beta stage for Pete’s sake, give him a break!!!

    I set up an account with Visitorday.com just three weeks ago and I am already seeing fantastic results with 750 of my domains. I am interested in revenue, not pretty sites and I certainly don’t expect Dimitry to do all the work he does without any compensation. Your 80% PPC Rev share at Visitorday is the same as you get for a Sedo Pro account, which is hard to qualify for and sedo does nothing for you.
