    Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the idea of using parked domains and sending paid traffic to them. Just wondering if anyone has ever done this and the results they have gotten

    Thanks.......BHW RULES!!!!!

    Waste of money. Parking doesn't pay anywhere near what you would spend.

    hmmm... how would you do such a thing without getting banned?... assuming paid traffic would be coming from the big "G"....? Its a great idea but I think there are strict policies against this.

    Let us know what you find out! It sounds more blackhat then whitehat....

    No, it's not. If someone tells you that jumping into a well is a bad idea, why do it?

    And because directing paid traffic to parked domains is just as stupid as it sounds, then why bother? Even whipping up a simple, few pages of WP is better idea.

    You're talking about arbitrage, you're about 4 years late to the party. 2006-2009ish a company out of Canada was doing $100M (profit) a year doing this. They bought a large Domainer's portfolio of 100K Domains for over $160M, parked them all with Company X while paying Company Z to send traffic (PPC).

    Many safeguards are in place by G/Y/etc that prevent arbitrage from taking place these days.

    The practice has been banned by the G/Y/M for a while now. If it's being done it's probably on a very small scale with a lot of infrastructure in place to bypass all preventive measures in place. The cost to pull it off now, from my understanding, doesn't make it cost effective. But where there is a will there is usually a way, I'm sure someone out there is getting away with it by working a loop hole.

    I can only imagine the effort. However, if the cost is so high verses the return what's the point...?

    Yeah, reason why I don't know of anyone doing PPC arbitrage these days.

    I used paid traffic and didn't got flagged. But that is not a well returned investment!
    Now I have found another source, will try it for a month to say it good enough.

    it's way too risky, if your traffic doesn't convert , u don't get paid.
