    what you need:

    1. an expired domain source (w/e floats your boat)
    2. patience
    3. some good ol` greens in your account (depends on how many domains you're after)
    4. some basic html/php skills
    5. an account with your favorite ad network
    6. some more patience...

    The story:

    I'm lazy... and I mean friggin lazy!
    That being said I don't really enjoy grinding so I search for ways to make money by doing nothing at all or mostly nothing...

    So let's begin cuz as I said I'm really .... REALLY lazy!

    Why do you need those 6 things:

    1. expired domain source

    basically you need it to get the first thing you need for this plan to work .... traffic.
    why bother SEO'ing stuff for 100$-1000$ to get 30.000 UV's to your offer when you can get that traffic from expired domains ?

    I personally use a scraper to find expired domains outside of the plain view of the world but you can go for w/e floats your boat... the domains I use usually have at least 3 backlinks from wiki sources and a shitload of links from comments... that's right COMMENTED SEO (so 2006...)

    One trick is to check some of the links coming from comments ... if the pages have over 10-15 comments I usually skip the domain.
    I'm not going to spoon feed you guys about niches and give you the twists I use with this method... figure it out yourselves...

    2. patience

    Why you need the first layer of patience ? It's hard to find domains for this... really hard! And when you find one you'll be tempted to buy it for the regular price...

    DON'T! Wait it out until there's a 1$ sale and buy more with VCC's .... The domains aren't going anywhere because most people buy freshly dropped ones... the ones you'll scrape would've been dropped a long long time ago, probably in a galaxy far far away too...

    3. kind of self explanatory...

    you need money for a cheap hosting account which allows you to host a lot of domains with 1-2 pages/domain and also to buy the domains... dugh!

    4. html/php skills

    part A: code an awesome parked domain page telling people that the domain is for sale for 100x of what you paid for it
    part B: recreate the page with links coming from high traffic sources like wiki
    part C: code a redirect script or edit .htaccess to redirect all the comment links to the page from 'part B'
    part D: rewrite your .htaccess to redirect all your mobile traffic to a mobile offer page related to the subject of the domain

    you can find my htaccess file here -> https://www.sendspace.com/file/r12xkn
    it's a .txt file and here is the

    VT: https://www.virustotal.com/ro/url/8...f39bd12f7cbaa3b7c73871de/analysis/1412069427/

    down at the end of the .htaccess file you fill find "YOUR_OFFER_HERE" string which you need to replace with your actual URL
    after checking the file for any kind of malicious code or redirects to my sites or w/e just copy/paste the lines in the .htaccess file into your .htaccess on your server or inside the folder of your domains WP installation (or w/e CMS you want to use)

    5. also self explanatory...

    6. some more patience

    this method won't bring you a ton of money but I can pretty much guarantee you it will pay for the domains and the hosting in a month + it has the added benefit of MAYBE selling one of the 'parked' domains for a wad of cash or at least a crisp Benjamin...
