Sunday Afternoon Question: Can the Parking Industry Be “Saved”?

Posted on 29 May 2011 by Andrei

As all of you know, parking revenue went down the you know what over the past couple of years and a lot of people have moved away from this monetization option altogether. I think the launch of InternetTraffic.com and the revenue increases several portfolio holders have been reporting made a lot of domainers ask themselves if this situation can “save” the parking industry. If you’d prefer, the question I’m asking today (“Can the parking industry be saved?”) can be replaced by two more specific ones:

1) Will InternetTraffic.com’s payout increases be consistent?

2) If so, will other parking companies end up decreasing expenses and increasing payouts?

What do you guys think?

    No it is history. It is quite old. Everyone is talking about the pay per transaction model. It eliminates click fraud with real results. You pay more but your also spending less and getting more.

    PPC will done with in 2 years. You will see these new companies who incorprate the pay per transaction model during the 12 months.. Watch out

    Parking is just an extension of paid search. Paid search isn’t history.

    @John

    So why is that you get like 1 or 2 bucks a click for a insurance click on these parking companies and you can get 30 bucks for a lead with other outfits. You see young buck, pay per transaction eliminates all the junk you guys mix with the good traffic.

    Its like putting together a horrible yellow pages and charging everyone the same amount.

    Bottom line it is an extension that will get worse with time, just like the yellow pages. Smart advertisers want results not junk traffic.

    @jonn: pay per lead and pay per sale have been around for a very VERY long time 🙂

    Based on my experience as a domainer as well as an affiliate marketer, most domainers would make less via CPA monetization than via parking without serious optimization due to traffic quality-related reasons.

    Sure, you can make more by split testing landers, split testing offers and so on but then we’ll end up dealing with the same problems as with mass development: the business model is not scalable. You can optimize one domain, two domains, ten domains, fifty domains… but what if you own 1k – 2k domains or more?

    I believe that the all mighty doamin owner, who people came knocking on their door for their doamins has become nothing more than a slave to Google, registrars, auction houses and parking companies.

    RIP.
