As usual I was checking my Google Adsense earning this morning and saw this new feature call Adsense for domain. From the title I assume that this feature must have something to do with the park domain. It turns out that I’m right about it. Basically you can purchase a domain name without hosting it and just put adsense on it. It’s almost the same as you park a domain at GoDaddy just that you’re not earning from GoDaddy but Google Adsense.
Google Adsense for domain opens up another money making opportunities. People will start research and study to maximize earning using this feature. I’m sure later we can see titles like “Make money with Adsense for Domain”, “How to Maximize Earning with Adsense for Domain”, “How to purchase a Domain name for Adsense for Domain”, “Domain Keywords for Adsense for Domain” and many more. That includes eBooks that feature guides and methods to earn money using Adsense for Domain. No doubt that Adsense for Domain is going to be hot and popular this year.
Before purchasing any domains just for Adsense for Domains, you should at least go through with the terms and policy. As usual Google Adsense has strict rules and their policies can be change at any time. It will be better to do the homework before purchasing the domains. After roughly went through the policy, it seems that the rules basically the same as the regular Adsense rules but with some additional rules add on. The rules is basically on the approval of domain name used and what you’re not allow to do to increase your earning with Adsense for Domain. The URL or domain name should not contain pornography, violent, profanity illicit drugs, gambling, weapons, beer, tobacco, prescription drugs, illegal activity, tragedies and any other terms that are illegal. The domain names should also respect the rights of trademark owners. As the methods to drive traffic to the park domain, publishers are not allow to use online advertising, redirects, pop ups and so on. In other words, the domain names must be carefully selected and there’s not many methods allow for more traffic. The only way is to work on the keywords selection.
In my opinion, I’m not so encouraging on using Adsese for Domain. A domain should lead to a blog or a website that contains certain information. It shouldn’t be just advertisement. How do you feel when most of the domain that you land on does not contain the information that you look for but just some advertisement? Already there are too many park domains with good names with no information, with the launch of Google Adsense for Domain, I think many domain names will be bought just to park.
